Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you...
James 4:8 ESV
Much like a husband and his wife spend time together to nurture their relationship and simply enjoy each other's presence, so too, does Christ and the Bride of Christ.
Reader, does your heart yearn for Him?
Let us follow the footsteps of our Master, when He was on earth, to spend much time in prayer for the sake of being in the presence of God.
If our heart's cry truly is "I am my Beloved's, and my Beloved is mine" (Song of Solomon 6:3), if we are truly "sick with love" (Song of Solomon 2:5), then how can we bear to not spend time in prayer?
Oh, the heavy ache of a believer's heart, when they miss the time to pray and be with their Beloved!
Let us spend time with the One who reedeemed us from the wages of sin. Let us spend time with the One who loved and chose us first.
Let us spend time with our Beloved.
