5 Simple Steps To Draw Closer To The Creator
Whether it may be having too many tasks on our to-do lists, or being caught up with work or school many times we get so tied up in our pursuits that we lose focus of our spiritual goals. Here are 5 simple steps that you can take to get back on track and draw a little closer to Yahweh(God).
Be consistent in prayer.
Set a time each day to pray. Even if you do not have anything to talk about, talk to Him. Be strategic with your prayers and build your relationship.
With each new day comes new struggles, circumstances, and battles to be won. This may mean that you may not be able to only depend on yesterdays word to carry you through today. Try to spend some time reading your bible or even an inspirational text that will not only help you understand Yahweh’s(God) love for you, but also his purpose for your life. That short time spent will be more beneficial for you than if you hadn’t spent any time at all.
One Day At A Time
Make a commitment daily. If you are facing an ongoing challenge take simple steps each day to be aware of that circumstance in order to conquer it. Try your best to have victory over the small things and soon those small victories will equate to big ones. Remember to take things one step at a time. Thoughts lead to actions, so put them under subjection. That one minute of victory, whether it may be in your thoughts or actions, will turn into an hour…a day…a week...a month..and so on.
Reject Perfection. Accept Obedience.
Perfection is often something that we put on ourselves that the enemy uses as a tactic to let us feel unworthy of Yahweh’s(God) grace. Remember Yahweh(God) didn’t say that His grace is enough for us when we are strong, but rather it is sufficient for us when we are weak. When we are vulnerable. When we fail. We are not only given grace, but also mercy! Grace saves us from what could've happened to us, while mercy saves us from what should’ve. Remember, perfection is not your testimony, obedience is.
Put Yourself In His presence (Meditation)
Each day, put yourself in a POSITION to be in Yahweh’s(God) presence 24/7. Whether that may mean to listen to inspirational music while at your desk at work, changing your phones background to a inspirational bible text, or even creating a spiritual mantra that you can whisper to yourself to remind you of Yahweh’s(God) love, do what it takes to meditate on His words day and night. By doing this, not only will you be meditating on Him, but you will be inviting Him into your presence wherever you are.
Yahweh(God) we acknowledge that you are the creator and that we ought to put You first before everything that we do, in order for everything else to fall into place. Help us to remember to spend time with you - daily, and delight in doing so. We thank you for reminding us to take time to meditate on You and Your words in order to build on our relationship with You. We thank You in advance for all that You have done, are doing, and will continue to do in our lives.
Above all else, we ask that Your will be done. In Yahshua/Jesus' name.
