Closer Than You Think
Updated: Jun 18, 2018
Every time we get into a car, we see the words "objects in mirror are closer than they appear" on the side view mirror. Anyone who has driven knows that no matter what is in the mirror, it will actually be closer that you think. When I thought about those words it made think about my relationship with God. Sometimes we think we have to call on God in order for Him to draw near to us. While a prayer of "God, come closer" is never void, it is easy to forget that God is actually already right there. Romans 8:39 says "nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord". There is nothing we can say or do that will eliminate our relationship with Him. He is never far away. We never have to wait for Him to arrive. Let us be grateful for a God that is much closer than we think.
