From A Distance

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.


From a Distance

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.
