Good morning people who God is always with
Do you ever feel like God is absent? Do you ever feel like God is not where you are? Do you ever feel alone?
The reality is most people experience times when we do not feel God in a moment or in a place. But does our lack of feeling God prove that He is not with us?
Let me answer that with a few thoughts from a book by A.W.Tozer titled ‘The Pursuit of God’ (Kingsway Publications pg 60-62).
‘Wherever we are, God is here. There is no place, there can be no place, where He is not. Ten million intelligences standing at as many points in space and separated by incomprehensible distances can each one say with equal truth, God is here. No point is nearer to God than any other point. It is exactly as near to God from any place as it is from any other place. No one is in mere distance any further from or any nearer to God than any other person.
Why then has not the Presence become the one universally celebrated fact of the world? The patriarch Jacob, ‘in the waste howling wilderness’, gave the answer to that question. He saw a vision of God and cried out in wonder, ‘Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not’ (Genesis 28:16). Jacob had never been for one small division of a moment outside the circle of that all-pervading Presence. But he knew it not. That was his trouble, and it is ours. Men do not know that God is here. What a difference it would make if they knew.’
What a profound truth that many of us know in theory but forget in our daily lives. Let’s remember this truth today and I encourage you to talk to God always, yes even when you don’t feel Him near, because where you are, there He is…always.
