Michael Youssef - I Feel Far From God. How Do I Draw Near to Him
You know, people ask me through the years why John was the disciple who leaned on Jesus's bosom? Why was he so close to Jesus? Do you know what the answer is? Because he wanted to be, he wanted to be.
See, Jesus never moves. He never moves, he's always there. It's you who moved away. And so you need to come back to him; and when you come back to him in repentance, when you come back to him in reconsecration, you're gonna experience his presence in a very sweet and special way.
So, know that God is there and he's waiting for you to come, and that way you will not feel distant. What Satan likes to do is to make you feel distant away from God, but God is never distant away from you. You come to him, he'll bless you.
