Stay Ever So Close To Me

STAY EVER SO CLOSE TO ME, and you will not deviate from the path I have prepared for you.  This is the most efficient way to stay on tracks; it is also the most enjoyable way.  Men tend to multiply duties in their observance of religion.  This practice enables them to give Me money, time, and work without yielding up to Me what I desire the most–their hearts.  Rules can be observed mechanically.  Once they become habitual, they can be followed with minimal effort and almost no thought.  These habit-forming rules provide a false sense of security, lulling the soul into a comatose condition.

What I search for in My children is an awakened soul that thrills to the Joy of My Presence!  I created mankind to glorify Me and enjoy Me forever.  I provide the Joy; your part is to glorify Me by living close to Me.

     Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.  Deuteronomy 6:5

    Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.  Colossians 3:23

     You have made known to me the path of life;  You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.  Psalm 16:11
