We often approach God as if there is some magic spell or potion that is going to get Him to come to us – like He is a genie that will appear if you just say the right words, confess your sins enough, have enough faith, do all the right things. But this is yet another wonder of Him – He is a Person who will come to you out of His own volition. He will not be bought and He is not the result of stringing the right formulas together and finally finding the right combination to open the safe. He will come when He and you are ready.
Faith is just waiting for God to show up. And he will.
