so you, by the help of your God return…
Hosea 12:6a

There are times that we as Christians get away from the Lord and are not as close as we need to be. To become close again takes a sovereign work of grace and the will of man in partnership together with God. God’s restoring grace is the help we need to return to Him. It is a work by His Spirit that draws us back to Him. God wants to help us and He desires for us to be close to Him. He is continually reaching out to us as His children, and all we have to do, is take His hand and start walking with Him.
James 4:8a-Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
As we take a step towards the Lord, through His reaching out to us, He then brings us close to Him. His restoring grace is available to us through faith.
