Our God is not a faraway God, off busy somewhere else. He’s not a King who lives in some distant castle with high walls. It’s just the opposite, in fact. He is here. And His business is you. What He’s most interested in is relationship with you. Connection with you. Conversation with you.
That’s what He’s about. That’s what He loves. That’s what He wants most.
God doesn’t hide from us. But we do hide from Him, don’t we? We hide because we’ve grown skeptical—skeptical of Him, but of ourselves too. We’ve come to believe we’re like orphans—alone in this world, abandoned, unqualified. So, we build walls, thick walls, to protect ourselves. And we hunker down. But something inside us knows we need God. And in our stronger moments, something inside us wants to find Him. Something deep inside knows that, sooner or later, we need to find Him.
But we don’t have to go find God. He’s already found us.
