Where is God?

As I make my way through the bible in my attempt to read it through like any other book (See HERE) I have come across some amazing scripture.  We often hear people say, "Where is God?"  "Why is He not here for me?"  I'm waiting for Him, where is He?"

Well, this scripture tells us exactly where He is and where He stands:

2 Chron 15 vs 1-2:  The Spirit of God came upon Azariah son of Oded.  (2) And he went out to meet Asa and said to him, Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: the Lord is with you while you are with Him.  If you seek Him [inquiring for and of Him, craving Him as your soul's first necessity], He will be found by you; but if you [become indifferent and] forsake Him, He will forsake you.  (Italics mine)


Is that not amazing?  And humbling!  God is where we are.  He does not force Himself on us.  He is there when we reach out and seek Him and He remains with us, no matter what we go through, until we forsake Him.  You let Him go, He lets you go!  I do believe, however,  He then allows things to happen in your life to get you to turn back to Him for HE DOES NOT WANT TO LOSE YOU!

2 Chron 15 vs 4:  But when they in their trouble turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, and [in desperation earnestly] sought Him, He was found by them. (Italics mine)


So, please, do not let Him go.  My life and what I have been through (which I state here is not nearly as bad as what others have been through) would not be the same without Him.  I would not have had hope!  I would not have left my enemies to Him.  I would have done myself and my family damage.  I would not be able to see the good in people!  My circumstances would have crushed me, made me angry, made me negative and resentful of my life and those in it!  Nope!  My life would be terrible without Him!

So.... where is God?  He is with you, for as long as you are with Him!  Let that be for always....!

God bless
Tracy

  6. I tell my boys that God isn't like their mama who will just barge in without waiting for an invite to help them - God waits to be invited. I'm trying to learn to hold back - but God does it so much better!

    So glad you are back! I missed you!
