September 23 – Turn Again
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. James 4:8
This is a law in the Spiritual Life. You must turn to Me before you are conscious of My nearness. It is that turning to Me you must cultivate in every circumstance. A glad turning of thankfulness, or a turning of weak appeal.
It is so wonderful that naught is needed but that mute appeal. You have no need to voice your longing. No need to plead, no need to bring gifts. How wonderful to feel you can so simply claim help, and so promptly, so lovingly, it is there.
Not only Help but the comfort and joy of Divine Nearness and Companionship. A nearness that brings sweetness into life, and confidence, and peace.
Never fear, never lose heart. Draw nigh to Me, and in that nearness is all you need. My Presence alone can transform conditions and lives – bring Harmony and Beauty , Peace and Love.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom
is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
