February 25, Today’s thought – I Am Among You

Good Morning

…for I am God, and not man;
the Holy One in the midst of thee: …Hosea 11:9

‘I am God and not a human; I am the Holy One,
and I am among you.’   Hosea 11:9 NCV

Before you read any further,
reflect on those last four words:
“I am among you.”
Do you believe that?
Do you believe God is near?
He wants you to.
He wants you to know he is
in the midst of your world.
Wherever you are as you read these words.
he is present.
In your car.
On the plane,
In your office, your bedroom, your den.
He’s near.
God is in the thick of things in your world.
He has not taken up residence in a distant galaxy.
He has not removed himself from history.
He has not chosen to seclude himself
on a throne in an incandescent castle.
He has drawn near.
He has involved himself in the carpools,
heartbreaks, and funeral homes of our day.
He is as near to us on Monday
as on Sunday
In the schoolroom as in the sanctuary.
At the coffee break as much as the communion table.
Max Lucado~~And the Angels Were Silent

Draw near to God . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
