Close To You
“”Am I only a God nearby,” declares the Lord, “and not a God far away? Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord. “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 23:23-24
How often do we feel that God is near? We seek His presence, but isn‘t He always present? Don’t get me wrong - there are times when God is closer than our own breath, and we can feel Him. These are precious and special moments - but does the Spirit of God not live in us? He does!
I’m not gonna lie, there are times when I wish He couldn’t see what I was doing, or hear what I was thinking, but He can and He still loves me. He died for me when He knew everything about me, and His blood has washed away all my sin and shame.
He is near so that He can comfort and protect me, like He promises. So He can help me and empower me to be and to do all that He created me for... like He promised. Because He is faithful. I pray that He helps me to become more faithful to Him. #heisfaithful #goodgoodfather #childofgod #walkinthespirit #templeoftheholyspirit #thelordiswithyou #thelordisnear #shalom #yourjourneytobeingwhole #dailydevotional
