God is Nearer Than You Might Think

I am reminded that, like this famous picture about painted on the ceiling of the Sistine chapel by Michelangelo of God and Adam reaching out toward one another, God is nearer than you might think.

My first thought goes back to the Old Testament stories of the children of Israel and how that even when they had forgotten God - He was there, waiting for them to return to Him.

How about you, have you been too busy for God lately? Does God seem far away? Do your prayers seem to hit the ceiling then fall to the ground? I am here to be God's voice to your heart by saying, "The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17

Challenge: Look for God in your life ... in the beauty of the trees, in the glimmer of a baby's eye, in the loving touch of a spouse, in the kind word from a friend, in the encouragement from your pastor, in the laugh of a child ... God is there! See Him?
