The Lord has placed the words “Start Here” on the hearts of all His children; and those who choose Him will begin the spiritual journey to find and live the plan that He has created for each of them. Each plan is unique and has been carefully crafted to bring intimacy with Him using the gifts that He has given each child as they choose to live for Him. That journey ultimately commences with a conscious decision to draw near to the Lord:
Moses did it;
Exodus 3:4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
Zechariah said it;
Zechariah 1:3 Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the LORD of hosts.
and James confirmed it;
James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you…
When we make the choice to pursue an intimate relationship with the Lord, it gets His attention; He said it is the one thing we can boast about:
Jeremiah 30:21 … and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.
Jeremiah 9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
As we build a relationship with the Lord, the love we receive from the Savior is the love we extend to others.
