In His Presence
Jesus said, I am the bread of life, whoever comes to me will not go hungry and whoever trusts in me will not be thirsty again John 6:35
God wants us to look forward to spending time with Him, not like a chore we have to do.
If you find yourself struggling with this, I encourage you to ask the HolySpirit to help you and meditate on the love of God.
Once you have set aside time in a day to spend with God. Be real with God about what is in your heart. First talk to God about what’s in your heart. Whatever it is you are grateful for or you struggle with. God already knows what consumes your thoughts and your mind most of the time. When we are open with Him, He can get involved and help us.
Also, if you have any grudges or feelings of resentment towards anyone, ask Him to help you deal with it and let it go.
God is not looking out to get you. He wants you to walk with Him, and then sin and struggles will not be able to hold you back.
Remember, He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother 🙂
