When God draws nearer to us, His Spirit will take over. Man's efforts without the enablement of the Spirit, are like a chopper trying to chop a steel. He wastes his efforts and uses too much energy on a wrong focus. Such is the way of some of us.
When God draws closer, He will desire that we put off our ways and desires and surrender ourselves to Him. He is not interested in our accomplishments, nor is He interested in our fame. He is only interested in our hearts, our hearts' attitude means a lot to Him, since it's going to determine how we're going to respond to Him.
Depart from sin and let us draw close to Him.
