If you could measure the distance between you and God, would you say that you feel close to Him right now or far away?
Whatever your answer may be, know that you’re not too far from God.
No, you’re not too far away for God to reach you!
The Bible says that the promise (of forgiveness and also of the gift of the Holy Spirit) is for all, including “all who are afar off.”
“For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” (Acts 2:39)
The people Peter was referring to were those living far away geographically, but I believe that we can also be far from God in our hearts. God’s promise is also for these people, for those who may feel or consider themselves to be “far from God.” Perhaps this is your case?
In our daily walks, feelings of doubt, failure, or loneliness can send us the message – lying – that we’re “too far gone” for God to seek us out. This is so untrue!
Don’t let your sins, your opinion, or your feelings make you believe that you’re too far away for the Holy Spirit to seek you out. You are in a good place, right here, right now, to open your heart to Him…He knows how to find the path to meet you. In reality, Jesus has already accomplished everything to do so by dying for you on the cross, by opening for you the pathway to God!
