“I am a God who is near,” says the Lord. “I am also a God who is far away. No one can hide where I cannot see him,” says the Lord. “I fill all of heaven and earth,” says the Lord.”
Have you ever felt like telling someone to walk a mile in your shoes before they start passing judgement or telling you everything you do wrong? Maybe you’ve thought, “if only they knew what I was dealing with they might understand”.
Are you someone who is afraid of the unknown? When you must find a new job, maybe move to a new city or state, maybe go to a new school; do you worry? I am like that, I get comfortable where I am, and change is not something I enjoy. The hardest thing I have is driving to unknown or unfamiliar places. I get worried about getting lost and who will I be meeting.
There is good news though. Jeremiah tells us that God is already there. He is God of heaven and God of the earth. There is no where we can go that God isn’t already there clearing our path and making the way easier. He also tells us in Matthew 6:27-30 that we don’t have to worry about today or tomorrow, God already has it planned out. I know it’s easier said than done but the more we cling to our Lord and trust Him, the easier it gets to let it go. And we also can find comfort knowing that even if no one walks in our shoes so no one understands, Jesus has. He’s been through our struggles, He’s faced hardship and just like He clung to His Father for strength we need to cling to Him. No, the world may not understand but God does. Give Him your life and watch Him perform miracles.
