Someone once asked, “If you are not as close to God as you used to be, who moved?” God is the same yesterday, today and forever and He is constantly and consistently seeking our friendship and fellowship. He is unchangeable (Hebrews 7:24) and does not move away from those who move away from Him. In fact, the Bible portrays God to be the expectant Father, waiting daily, for the return of his prodigal sons/daughters.
Newton’s third law of Thermodynamics states that “For every action, there is equal and opposite reaction”. The same is true when it comes to agreeing and becoming closer/one with God. God is one who draws near to those who draw near unto him. The initiative should be ours to draw near (first); to backslide from backsliding and when we take the initiative to draw closer to Him, God takes the initiative to draw closer to us. For our action of drawing near to God, there is equal and opposite reaction of God drawing near unto us (James 4:8).
