‘Come near to God and He will come near to you.’ James 4:8
Yes, God is really here! He is Immanuel, which means ‘God with us’. He is the author and finisher of our faith, He is our deliverer, and our defender. He is our Champion, He is our Lion of Judah. He IS.
One only need look at nature to see God. He is everywhere. He is everything. He made the butterfly, from an ugly cocoon. He grows roses, lovely roses, from tiny buds. He blows a gentle breeze that touches our faces on a summer’s evening. He fills our world with sights, and sounds, and scents, too many to begin to count. He dazzles us with the mountains and the oceans. He simply dazzles.
If you can’t feel Him, that does not mean He is not here. He has promised to never leave us or forsake us. If you know Him, you know that His words are true. God is not a man; He cannot lie. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He is God.
Open your mind, your heart, yes, even your eyes, and you will see Him, and His glory, mercy, grace. All is here for you. Read His words, and find understanding, solace, peace, refreshment. Come to know Him intimately, and you will automatically fall in love with Him.
I know…for I did.
