“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you...” (James 4:8)

Today, we encourage you to get as close to God as possible! Satan is walking around seeking whom he may devour; he’s after you! Satan uses sin daily to find which faithful soul he can trap, which soul isn’t walking as close to God as they should be. Sin is sneaky, tempting, deceitful, misleading, hurtful, fun for the moment, but deadly in the end. The more we sin, the farther away from God we are. We need to Get Close!

James 4:7 states, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” Satan is not our friend; satan is the enemy. How often are we losing the battle against the enemy because we are not close enough to the Lord? Plain and simple, the closer we are to God, the more we push satan away. We need to Get Close!

Today, while you still have the chance, resist satan, don’t give in. There is an urgent plea, found in James 4:8, to Get Close to God. Will you?

Scriptures to reflect on:

Matthew 4:18
Romans 6:23
Ephesians 6
I Peter 5:8
