Yes, this is the title of an old hymn that talks about our walk with the Lord. More than just a hymn, however, it is also a promise that we have: “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8). What a wonderful promise—if we want to be closer to God all we have to do is reach out to Him. He promises that if we do this He will draw close to us. What do you suppose stands in the way of you reaching out to Him? He stands ready to walk close with us, caring for our problems and concerns.
