How do I start getting closer to God?

  1. First acknowledging that He is Lord of your life. 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness”. Romans 10:10 “For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved”.
  2. Read and study the word of God. James 4:9 “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded”. Reading the word of God will help you to draw near to him, to understand him and hear his voice as it is written in James 10:3-5 “To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers”.
  3. Meditation and stay in constant communication with the Lord through reading the Bible and Prayer: 1 Thessalonians 3: 16-18 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”.
  4. Listening to the voice of the Lord: Exodus 18: 19a “Listen now to my voice; I will give you counsel, and God will be with you”. The counsel is the direction for life.
