Psalm 73:28 – “Draw Me Nearer To Thee O Lord”

Repost from February 9, 2012

Psalm 73:28 – “But it is good for me to draw near to God.”

Because of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, it is not in our nature to want to be nearer to God. Sin had separated us from that desire or need to be in fellowship with God our Father.

We are living in perilous times. The days are evil! Jesus warned of such an hour. There are troubles on all sides and things are going to just get worse. I must repeat this: IF THERE EVER WAS A TIME TO DRAW NEARER TO GOD, THE TIME IS NOW!!!!!!

In our text, the psalmist says it is good for (me). That is personal. What is good for me? (to draw near to God). There is a part I play in being in God’s presence. I have to act. I have to move from sin to Salvation. Then, I am able to draw near to God with a clean heart. God must become my goal in life. It must be my desire to draw nearer to Him. In doing this, it is not only good for me, but it pleases God.

As believers in Christ, we can boldly approach the throne of Grace where we will find grace and mercy in the time of need. We can drawer nearer to God there. It is through our Mediator, Jesus the Christ. He is our High Priest, the Veil who stand between us and divine justice. The bible declares that when Jesus died on the cross, the curtain in the temple was torn in 2. We now have direct access to the presence of a Holy God through Christ, our Savior.

Is it your desire to draw nearer to God on today? I can only hope and pray so. None of us know when our clock of life will stop.

I want to leave you with this old familiar hymn that my parents and the saints of old used to sing from the pureness of their hearts. I hope this is your prayer and song on today also.

I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice, And it told Thy love to me; But I long to rise in the arms of faith, And be closer drawn to Thee. Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord, To the cross where Thou hast died; Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord; To Thy precious, bleeding side.Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord, By the pow’r of grace divine; Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope.

And my will be lost in Thine. O the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend, When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God, I commune as friend with friend! There are depths of love that I yet may know; Ere Thee face to face I see; There are heights of joy that I yet may reach; Ere I rest in peace with Thee.


As I sing this song out loud, I feel the presence of the Lord comforting, strengthening, loving and recognizing my presence with Him as I draw nearer to him through this song.

Saints, I love Him on today! I Praise Him, I Glorify Him, I Magnify Him for truly He is worthy of all my praises!



I love you all with the love of Christ.

About Minister Aiken

I am a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I received my call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Sunday, February 16, 2003 and I was licensed as a Minister on Sunday, December 30, 2007. I am an Associate Minister, Sunday School Teacher for Adult # 1 Class, Instructor for New Members Class, Youth Church Teacher, Senior Missionary, and Blogger. I have worked in the medical field for 31 years. I am the wife of one husband whom I have been married to for the last 27 years. Out of this union came one son. I have always been an advocate of God's Word even prior to salvation. Now that I am saved, I have taken it to another level with the help of the Holy Spirit. I am what others call "Radicle for Christ!" Yes, I LOVE JESUS! I started sending out daily devotional messages over 12 years ago via email. In March of 2011 the Lord told me that it was time for the daily devotionals to be taken to the world wide web. I did not understand how nor belive that God could use me for such a task as this, but thanks be to God who knows all things. I obeyed God and the rest was history. This ministry has truly been a blessing to the heart and soul of many that are saved and unsaved. Many lives have been changed, energized, transformed, restored, refreshed, and clansed by the Power of the Holy Spirit through God's spoken words from His Bible. Romans 10:14-15 - How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15-And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Truly, this Ministry is a blessing from God to mankind everywhere. No great works has any man done that he or she should boast! "TELL THE LORD THANK YOU" is indeed the Lord's will for you and I. God truly is an "AWESOME WONDER!" I love Him!! He is my Lord and Savior!!! Romans 8:31- If God be for you, who could be against you? It was Christ who died for us. 1 Thessalonian 5;18-Give thanks in all things for this is the Lord will concerning you and I in Christ Jesus. Matthew 6:33-But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
