*DAILY DEW 20TH/MAY/2021* *As You Wish* _Key Bible Text:_ *"Come near to God, and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners! Purify your hearts, you hypocrites! (James 4:8 (GNB))* _Bible Insight:_ It is generally proven that one of the common ways to make a stranger relax and be friendly towards you, is to wear a smile and speak nicely. Smiles provokes smiles as laughter provoke laughter. A frowned face is not a friend of a smiling face. To be personally attractive to others, being jovial and expressive have been proven to be vital. To be attracted to others, smile more often and leave a nice comment or compliment unsolicited. Hard faced people find it hard to keep smiling friendly faces around. Likewise, if we must grow close to God, we must go close to God. We don't expect to be close to God while we are busy with everyone and everything else. God is everywhere but only the one who consciously studies His word and observes His ways will feel the assurances and blessings of His presence. God is ever available to all, but He is never close to all. On the cross, God through Christ Jesus, did all the smiling and niceness there is to do towards unworthy mankind. Right now, only the wise ones who reciprocates God's overtures will receive His attention and intimate blessings. It is as you wish. If you don't feel God, it is you who is far away. If you don't know God, it is you who is too busy for Him. If you can't see His finger in your affairs, it is you who have not invited Him. If He is not in your home, you're the one who locked Him out. Even now, He still knocks calmly at the door of your heart. If He is not in your hear, you are the one who never gave Him your heart to possess in the first place. God is ever ready. Are you ready? You are as close to God as you choose to be! MEDITATION: *_Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: (Hebrews 10:22-24 (KJV))_* *#David_Joshua_Egbochuo* *#Thursday_wisdomforliving* *#Becoming_More_Like_Jesus* *#Wonders_of_Grace* *#Hello_May* ❤ *NEWS FLASH:* 🥳🥳 Links To Visit: *Podcast:* anchor.fm/daily-dew-devotional/episodes/TROUBLED-elli7h *FB Pages* www.facebook.com/DavidJoshuaEgbochuo/ www.facebook.com/thedavidgen/ www.facebook.com/THEREVIVALCORPS/ *DDDblog* dailydewdevotion.blogspot.com/2021/05/as-you-wish.html *Telegram Group:* t.me/joinchat/NzXQlVc9Hx7LfaRSnh9fHg Feel Free to Share with Friends.
