Come close to God [with a contrite heart] and He will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; and purify your [unfaithful] hearts, you double-minded [people]. James 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version
Contrite means you feel bad about your sins and desire to repent of them and double minded means you think this way but behave in the exact opposite way.
Have you ever met someone who says they will do this and then they do that. It is not a one off experience but a habitual one.
For example you make an appointment with them for nine o clock in the morning and they do not show up until eleven or one in the afternoon. They do not call to say they will be late and when they arrive they do not apologize but make some stupid excuse. It infuriated me. Now I just tell folks to be there on time because I am not waiting. If it is important enough for them then they will be there on time.
Mutual respect is an intricate part of a loving relationship. Joseph- Anthony: Green
The same thing is true with Jehovah.
We must be respectful towards Him if we desire a loving relationship with Him.
If He convicts you of a sin in your life and you admit it but intentionally continue in your sin that will make Him angry and yes He will walk away from you. He will not accept lame excuses nor tolerate insolence.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with a Heavenly friendship with You. Please bless me with always being respectful towards You in all I say and do. I humbly give thanks for this blessing and request this blessing in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
