Many years ago, there was a popular song entitled “From a Distance”. Recently, I was reminded of it and one line says “from a distance, God is watching you”. As I was singing, that thought jumped out at me as being untrue. There is no separation between God and man. He is right here, right now and I immediately thought of Psalm 16:8 which reads ” I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” There is NO distance! We can call upon Him any time, any place and just listen. He will always answer. Today I will listen more.
Many years ago, there was a popular song with the title as that above. The melody was also beautiful and a few years back the original performer was in a nearby town and sang this song and we went to see her. For days after, I would sing this around the house. Some of the words were “From a distance, God is watching us”. Suddenly, one day I just stopped after saying those few words and corrected it! We are not separated from God! He is always right here with us. In Psalms 46:10 it reads, “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” No where does it say He is far from us. That Truth is so comforting to me.
