Is God Watching Us from a Distance?


You may remember Bette Midler's song, "From a Distance" where she says that God is watching us from a distance.   I am sure there are many times when it seems like that is the truth -- that God is not paying attention, that He is ignoring us.

But if you look in Scripture, you'll find a different answer to the question.  .  In Psalm 34, we read in the Message,
"If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there;if you’re kicked in the gut, He’ll help you catch your breath." 
In Psalm 145 we read,
"The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.
and James 4:8 says,
"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you."  
Apparently God is not watching all of this from a distance.  He is right there,  near to those who call upon Him in truth, near to those who draw near to Him.

If you look for Him, you'll find him.
