Okay, on a scale of 0 to 10, how close do you feel to God, right in this moment? Zero is a million miles apart … ten is a close, intimate, real relationship with Jesus. Come one, how close do you feel to God right in this moment?
Have you noticed how the more technology we have at our fingertips, the more connected we become? First came the postal service – remember letters? Then came telephones, telexes and eventually, cars, faxes, email, smartphones and these days social media is all the rage – Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and a host of others. Goodness only knows what’s next!
But the thing you notice is that the more technology we have, the busier we become. The more options we have, the more we cram pack our lives full of doing, and stuff and stuff …
And the incredibly sad paradox of all that is that the more tech we have at our fingertips, the less deeply we connect with other people. Remember the sorts of conversations that used to happen when we went camping as kids and sat around the fire and just talked?
And if that’s true in our human relationships, it’s also true in our relationship with God. Somehow we’ve just drifted apart.
2 Chronicles 15:2 Azariah went to meet Asa and said, “Listen to me, Asa and all you people of Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you when you are with him. If you look for him, you will find him. But if you leave him, he will leave you.”
Listen up … if God seems a million miles away, make time to be with Him because He is with you when you are with him … But if you leave him, he will leave you.
So if you’ve drifted away, don’t be discouraged because if you look for him, you will find him.
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
