James 4:8 (ESV)
8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
*The more time we spend talking to God, obtaining His opinion, and listening to His guidance are more elements that allow us to grow closer to Him. God is already close to us because He knows everything about us including our problems, weaknesses, strengths, and desires. However, we often choose to do things our way or function as normal without concerning the very individual that knows all and sees all. He is even aware of what is best for your future. Therefore, wouldn't we want to become closer with someone who can benefit you, and who truly cares? Let's pray that we are more consistent with doing the right things by being in His will in order to gain His trust, and submitting ourselves completely in order to be entrusted with even more. You can't move forward if you are constantly going back and forth.
