The Approachable God
The God of the Universe desires to have relationship with you. Matter of fact, He created you just for that very reason — for a love relationship with Him. His desire is to lavish His love on mankind and give us the opportunity to return that love.
God’s arms are wide open, ready to receive you and me. Do you know that He waits for us? Even as we go about our day, busying ourselves with so many things, He waits for us. His heart beats with excitement at the thought of us sitting at His feet, listening to His voice, hearing His heart beat.
I believe that I often stop short of going boldly before the Throne of Grace. At times, God seems so big, and me so small. How could a weak and imperfect vessel approach a sinless and perfect God?

The God of the universe has created an open door for you and me to approach Him, and we get to come freely, withholding nothing, just as we are. He already knows the thoughts swirling around in our heads. He is intimately acquainted with our grief and all of those things that weigh heavy on our hearts. His desire is to take our burdens and heal our heavy hearts. He promises to give beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and praise for the spirit of heaviness. There is love, joy, and peace found in His presence.
Will you approach the Throne of Grace today my friends? God is waiting for you to come, just as you are. No need to clean yourself up first. Come dirty. Come weak. Come poor. Allow Him to strengthen you and lavish His love on you.
God is approachable. It is possible to know Him in the intimate way that you desire. – James Goll
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:6)
