The Christmas season has not ended for me as I continue to meditate on Immanuel – God with us. The fact that God is near has been a consuming thought for weeks.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Philippians 4:4-5 NIV
Intimacy with God is to be desired and we are told that God is close to:
· Those who call on Him (Psalm 145:18)
· The broken-hearted (Psalm 34:18)
· Those who draw near to Him (Isaiah 50:8; James 4:8)
The nearness of God – He is so available . . . amazing. Life brings many opportunities to experience God with us. Rejoice today that God is near.
Sharing the journey with you,
