There are times in my walk with Christ where I feel really close to Him, but there are also times I feel like He is so far away. I know this is very normal and it happens to most of us, but the one thing I always forget is that it is really all up to me.One of the best ways to feel close to God is through prayer. Prayer is not something that we should limit to a certain time of day and for a certain amount of time. The Bible tells us to pray continuously. This means that we should pray all day. In everything we do, we can talk to God. This is one of the best ways to feel close to Him.
The other way is through reading the Bible. If you are at a point where you are not feeling close to God, reading His Word might not offer a lot to you. You might close the Bible and realize that you didn’t get anything out of it.
The key to reading the Bible is being close to God. When you are closer to God, your heart will be right with Him. The Bible will then come to life more, and it will really speak to you. This is why at some points in life you can read a passage and feel like it was written directly for you. It’s because it was. Although it was not written only for you, it was written directly for you, and for everyone else.
