Morning Line: Resisting to Win!

Morning Line: Resisting to Win!
By Bob Gass
“Come near to God and he will come near to you…” James 4:8
Resisting the devil is imperative, but it is not the endgame. This is: ‘Come near to God and He will come near to you.’ Satan’s goal is to drive a wedge between you and God, you keep him from doing it by closing the gap between you and God! Beware distancing from God is done unconsciously. You become preoccupied, self-centered, over-committed, prayer is limited to grace over meals, Bible-reading to the pastor’s sermon. God’s word says “…Pay more careful attention, therefore, to what [you] have heard, so that [you] do not drift away”(Hebrews 2:1 ). Distancing is a subtle drift, Satan’s goal is to separate you from God and His blessing. Like a soldier who’s cut off, you become an easy target. The Bible says, ‘If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble’ (Ecclesiastes 4:10). Distancing from God is a choice. But it’s your choice, never God’s! He says, ‘…I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee’ (Hebrews 13:5). Whatever your circumstances, He remains faithful. ‘When you pass through the waters…the fire…I am with you…’ (Isaiah 43:2-5 NIV). What’s God’s part? ‘He will come near to you.’ Take one step in His direction and He will close the gap, embrace, secure, and enable you ‘…to stand up to everything the devil throws your way…’ (Ephesians 6:11).
