Oh, the sweetness of this verse.
It is impossible for me not to fall in love with the words of the
Lord and this verse is no exception.
This is a thought that I think is so important to keep in mind.
So many feel that God has left them or forgotten them, which is never,
ever the case... some who feel that way have often drawn away from God
for some reason. Or with some of us, with the busyness of life and the
distractions of each day, we may find we are growing very, very slowly
distant from God.
He never leaves us and is never far from us because of his immense
love for each of us, but these words are a valuable reminder
that although this is true no matter how much of a priority God is
in a person's life or even if you are pushing God away,
the closest relationship possible that we can have
with Him is one where we draw close to HIM, too!
When God sees our hearts and sees that in them we truly desire
Him and are drawing nearer to Him, He will bless our walk
not only with Him but toward Him.
When I read this verse, I imagine two people standing a long distance
apart from each other. They get closer to each other much faster
if both of them move and walk toward each other than if
only one of them were to walk forward.
It is the same with our relationship with God.
Blessings to you.
Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!
