Psalms 19:8 "The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD [is] pure, enlightening the eyes."

By knowing dear God through the Word, He visits you personally through it in His Perfect law and judgments. So know Him better by getting more into it. Be wiser and think clearer by thinking as He does through the Word and knowing what is pleasing to Him and what is not. Let the Word polish your heart and purify you brightening your life up and clearing out any doubts or worries you may have. The knowledge and joy in having it through dear God in the Word is powerful and very peaceful.
So ask that He open your heart and mind to the Word and being able to get into it each day. By the act of setting aside some time for Him in it, you are lining yourself up with Him and His Ways. The closer get into the Word, the better off you will be and the more you will know Him.
Especially during challenging times get even closer to Him by talking things out with Him. There is no closer Friend or Partner Who will always be there and help you out. He is your Strength. So if who can be against you if you are with Him and on His Side. Just like those in the past that followed Him, you, too, will be lifted up to Him by keeping with Him and not having a doubt that He can do His Will through you and make your life better.
Finally, He is so close to you so let Him in openly. He will only come where He is wanted so invite Him into your home and your heart. Express your deep thanks for all that He is doing in your life today and how He always keeps you going. He is so proud of you and will always be with you forever. He has won that victory through the Son, so why not enjoy Him today. He loves you so much.
