O Christian, may this be a blessing to you, a reminder that our God is always close at hand. Always.
Proverbs 18:24 says, “One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
And Jesus tells us in John 15:15, “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” And in Matthew 28:20, “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age,” with John 14:16-17, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”
objects are closer than they appear
we pray for Your closeness
we expect to turn and see Jesus
we expect to see Your angels
we watch for great miracles
what if we are looking too hard
what if we are looking the wrong way
what if we are looking too far
we only need to hear You say
“I am closer than you are aware.
There is no need to look here and there.
My servants and signs are closer than they appear.
Believe when I say I am near.”
we may not always see Christ
because we refuse to look inside
some great miracles are missed
because we may be looking for the big
we need to remember Christ lives within
and that angels appear as men
and miracles come both small and large
but God always resides within our hearts
