Once, when I was really young, I wanted to reach a doll that I had kept up my small doll-robe (wardrobe for my dolls 😉 ) so no one would get it (I was the smallest in my house both in stature and in thinking). Normally, My Dad always obliged me and he would come with me to the place and bring it down for me.
That morning, He did come with me. We got there and I said ‘Daddy, Oya bring it down lets go’. No response, no hand, no doll. I repeated it about 3 times. Nothing happened. I called out ‘Daddy! Daddy!! Daddy!!! DADDY!!!! DADDDYYY!!!!! Ohohoh nah DADDY WHERE ARE YOU??’ I could see him right there but he was so far from me. I got frustrated, stretched myself out and picked the doll.
Then My ‘run-away’ daddy took my hands and said “lets go”. I slapped his hand and said “where were you siiiince that I was calling you?” and He said to me “I’ve been here pumpum, I was watching you grow up!”
Like little me, many times God seems so far away from us. We’ve called and called, cried and cried and it’s like He isn’t hearing. No Prophecies, No Word, No messages, Nothing!
God says to tell you He is not Far! He is standing by you, earnestly and carefully watching over and after you.
When the Gold is in the furnace, I’m sure it feels as though the Smith is so far! It must have called out many times, “Smith, cant you see me burning out? I’m in pain and you can’t even hear me? Where are you???” But the sweet thing is Mr Smith is right there looking intensely through the fire and at the gold. He’s right there making sure it doesn’t come out before time nor get over-burned! He’s there watching the gold Grow Up!
God is there with you. He is not Far! The times of your ‘growing up’ are the times when he is even Nearer! You may not feel His Presence but He is there… Trust that He is there!
There are two places in a man’s life; The Mountain top and the Wilderness. These two places bring Him to his knees; one is Utter Awe, the other is utter dependence!
At the Mountain top, God is Near, In the Wilderness, God is even Nearer! TRUST HIM!
He’s right there! He’s watching you Grow UP!
