Looking for God Nearby

English Audio Version

People around the world travel great distances looking for God.

Rome, the great center of the Catholic Church.

Mecca, for another faith.

How about Salt Lake City?

People of three faiths travel to the Holy Land to make a connection with God.

There’s nothing wrong with that, but if we think those are the only places we can find God, we are off the mark.

Acts 17:27 says:

“That they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us.”

Not far? What does that mean?

It’s so simple. God is as far as (or as close) as our knees.

When we choose to approach him in prayer, we open a link between us and him, and we discover he’s been at our side all along.

Go ahead, travel to Rome. You can find God there without a doubt.

He’s in Mecca, in Salt Lake City, and you can hardly miss God in the ancient sites of the Holy Land.

He’s also at your side right now. Turn to him. Trust in him. He reaches out to you today.

God is where we find him, and he’s never far away.

Excerpt of the Day

Christ loves us, but one day, he will rise and destroy those who do not follow after him.
