Oh God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. Psalm 81:1
Today you are invited to consider how near – or how far – God is in regard to you. Is your God close to you or is He far away? What evidence can you see in your life, right now, that He is present with you and blesses you continually? What have you been praying for over a long period of time that He seems to be ignoring? What is it that makes you feel that way? God does not change nor move – could it be that there is something in your life that is making you feel far from Him? If so, what do you need to change? Or perhaps He is just being silent so that you feel He is far away. What is He trying to teach you? Set aside a specific time today to talk to God about His nearness and praise Him for it; or about His distance from you and ask for His guidance to help you to draw near again.
May God bless you with an awareness of His presence today.
