Have you ever been with someone and they seem distant? Perhaps you have had someone say to you ‘you feel like you are somewhere else’ or ‘you seem miles away’. We all know that it’s possible to be right next to someone but not really with them at all becasue our or their mind is elsewhere. Is that what our relationship with God is sometimes/often/always* like? (*delete as appropriate)
God is with us! It makes me sad at the beginning of our church services when people talk about coming into God’s presence, because I don’t think that that is possible for Christians, I believe that God is with us always. (Take a look at God is closer than you think to find out why).
Are we with God? My desire is to look to, talk with and connect with God more consistently each day. How about you?
I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people. (Leviticus 26.12)
God is with us but will we be with him?
One of the many wonderful things about God is that he is always accepting. Whether this is the first time you are trying to talk with him or whether you are trying to get back into talking with him more, go ahead he is with you and waiting.
