God is Here

I have been reading The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer over the last week or so and I came across a statement that I haven’t really considered in the past. In chapter 5 of the book, Tozer states, “Men do not know that God is here. What a difference it would make if they knew.” Wow. Men do not know that God is here. Do we forget that God is just as active in His creation today as He was when the Scriptures were first recorded? Do we fail to realize that we serve an everlasting God? He is the Alpha AND the Omega. He is the Beginning and the End. Can we fathom the knowledge that God is here? What would mankind do if they knew that God is here? Man has rejected God and because they have rejected God, they do not acknowledge His presence. But can you imagine the difference that there would be in the world if all the world came together and acknowledged that God is HERE? It would be incredible. As Christians, do we truly know that God is here? Or do we think that He is far away, just kind of keeping an eye on us when it is convenient for Him? What is stopping us from declaring to the world: Our God is here! We are so blessed to serve a God who is active in His creation. We are so blessed to get to experience God in our lives. The same Holy Spirit that was active in the lives of the Apostles in the book of Acts is in our hearts today. Let us proclaim to the world that Jesus is King and that God is here! Thank you Jesus!
