Today’s Scripture: “I am a God who is near. I am also a God who is far away,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 23:23 GWT
Am I a God at hand, says the LORD, and not a God afar off? The LORD asked this question through Jeremiah and this is a verse that comes back to me over and over again. Do we understand the scope of our God?
Do we allow those who continually try to take God out of every day activities affect this truth in us? God is right where we are today. Not only is He right here with us yet He is the Almighty God of Heaven who created all things. Like these days of Jeremiah we must accept God’s truths over what man professes.
What a wonderful mystery to have the closeness of God while trusting in His omniscience and His omnipotence. God is intimately involved with all we think and do and yet He is God over all.
Although I can not comprehend the majesty of God I choose to trust Him and His Word over my limited sight and that of those who try to define God’s place. Although I am embarrassed that God is so near as to witness all of my thoughts and deeds yet I find power in knowing His truth will prevail.
Do you relate to God and the near and far?
Today’s Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for being near and far. Thank You for asking this question of us to remind us where and who You are. LORD of Heaven who dwells in my heart I love You and trust You over myself and others. LORD direct me today both near and far. Amen.
