"But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all Your works” – Psalm 73:28
In our lives we can do without many things, but we cannot do without God. We need Him in our lives, and in the world of which we now live. Only He knows what to do for the good of every individual and the world of which we now live; a good reason why we should not be drawing ourselves closer to anything other than God Himself.
When will people realize what they are looking for can never be found in anything and nobody else? When will the world realize the answers and solution of which they seek for world peace can be found in no other, but the name above all name, Jesus Christ the Savior - the name they keep refusing to acknowledge? (Philippians 2:9).
God wants to be a Loving Father to us, and guide us through this uncaring and unruly world of chaos. But how can He if he is constantly shut out, refused and ignored? We need help, and who else is there that is better qualified, than our Mighty God in Heaven? (Isaiah 44:6)
The best solution for us all, both individually and as a world, is to draw near to God and hear what he has to say, to get an understanding as to what’s going on; why people do what they do, why the world is in the condition it is in.
You can’t explain what you don’t understand yourself. But if you would just humble yourself, and make time to draw near to our God, you can know what He wants you to know. And then will you discover, that it is indeed a good thing, to draw near to the God in Heaven.
