How to Get Close to God

By Brian Butler

How do I get close to God?

It may seem trivial to start here when talking about getting closer to God, but oftentimes the greatest hindrance to drawing near to God is the hidden doubt of the heart. The thoughts of “Is this really working?” or “Does God even hear me?” While these questions are common, they pose a great threat to drawing near to God. Why? Well, because if you don’t believe that God wants you near to Him, then your efforts to come closer are futile. So my question for you is: Do you believe God wants you to be closer to Him? Let’s go to the book of beginnings to see how God feels about being near to us.

“Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.”

Genesis 5:24

Here we see a man by the name of Enoch that walked with God. And if Enoch could be close enough with God to walk with Him, then so can you! Get that reality established in your heart. God wants you to be close to Him. 

So what are you waiting for?
