God Draws Us to Himself

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.” (John 6:44)

Regardless of where you are in your walk with the Lord, God is always drawing you closer. He wants to have a strong, intimate, and personal relationship with you. He is very intentional when it comes to drawing us near to Him. These are four ways God draws us closer to Him:

  1. God draws us near through His Word. We can encounter Scripture in many ways. We could spend time reading the Bible on our own. We could hear teachers and preachers speak to us about the Word of God. Or we could even stumble across it in everyday life, as in our social media feeds. Regardless of where we see it, God’s Word is always accessible to us; and it is one of the most prominent tools God uses to draw us to Him.
  2. God draws us near through His people. We were not created to live the Christian life in isolation. God designed us to live in relationship with other people, specifically with other believers, so that we can grow in our faith. When we have deep conversations about God with our friends and family, when we receive encouragement from someone, or when we hear testimony of God’s work in another’s life; we are being drawn closer to the Lord.
  3. God draws us near through His Spirit. When you become a follower of Jesus, the Holy Spirit comes to live within you. He is a helper and a companion to you. He is with you at all times to give you guidance, wisdom, discernment, and direction. When you feel the Holy Spirit tugging at your heart and you sense His prompting, it is God drawing you close to Himself. He wants to speak to you and lead you down the path He has for you.
  4. God draws us near through our circumstances. When we go through difficult seasons in life, we often face disappointment, heartbreak, confusion, and pain. At times like these, we want to know that someone is there for us, caring for us, and encouraging us in the midst of this situation. Because God wants us to know that He is our ultimate Comforter, He will often use trials and struggles to bring us back to Him, and draw us closer to Him. When we are walking closely with the Lord, the circumstances we are facing become much more bearable.
