I'm here to rest in Your presence
I have full assurance that You are here
and as I dwell in Your Spirit
there Your hand will guide me
You are drawing near to me
I love the words of this new Kerith song.
It's a faith-filled declaration .
It's a reminder to me that we need to choose to believe that as we draw near to God, He draws near to us.
And it's not about whether we feel close to God -"full assurance" is based on Truth. It's the combination of our human action and God's supernatural power at work so that we experience His guidance and presence.
This is true, whether it's on a Sunday during our worship times together at Kerith, or on our own as we find that quiet place and set aside some time, to read the Bible, pray and meet with God.
"Come near to God and He will come near to you." James 4:8 (NIV)
" Say a quiet yes to God and He'll be there in no time." (The Message)
