Your Father is Near

Posted on Posted in devotions

Acts 17:27 “…he is not far from any one of us.”

Sometimes I walk outside at night time and look up at the stars my Lord has created. I stare at the twinkling lights as they shimmer and glisten throughout the sky and think, “My God, you are truly amazing.” At this point, I’ve often found myself having a conversation with the Lord as if we were now closer because I was looking into the sky where I presume He is. You know, way beyond the atmospheres, galaxies, dimensions, far into the Heaven above. As I do this, it makes Him seem far away measuring by my human perspective of distance. I take a deep breath, and am reminded by Him, He is near.

Sister, your Father is not far as you sometimes feel or perceive that He is. He dwells not only near you, but within you. It is His breath that flows in and our of your lungs, His healing blood that pumps throughout your heart, His Spirit dwells within yours, His heart beats along with your own beat, because your home is His heart. You breathe Him in for He is all around you encompassing your being. There is no single place you can hide from or escape Him because He Himself created the depths and deepest crevices of this earth. There is nothing, sister, I tell you nothing, that can separate you from His love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither your fears for today nor your worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate you from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate you from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus your Lord (Romans 8:38).

Walk through this day and everyday after knowing that your Almighty, victorious, righteous, and just Father is upholding you with His right hand. He walks with you, He goes before you, He dwells within you. Daughter, you are enveloped by the Saviors love and covered by His grace. He is ever near, ever present; He always was, and always will be. There is no single place you can go His love won’t find you.

Prayer: Yes, Lord, I believe that you are all around walking beside me and paving the way before me. At times I have felt that you were distant, but I know that You, My Lord, never leave my side. I thank you for your goodness, goodness I can not even comprehend. I love you my sweet Savior, and this morning I magnify your Holy name. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
