You may remember Bette Midler's song, "From a Distance" where she says that God is watching us from a distance. I am sure there are many times when it seems like that is the truth -- that God is not paying attention, that He is ignoring us.
But if you look in Scripture, you'll find a different answer to the question. . In Psalm 34, we read in the Message,
"If your heart is broken, you’ll find right there;In Psalm 145 we read,
"The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in Truth.and James 4:8 says,
"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you."Apparently God is not watching all of this from a distance. He is right there, near to those who call upon Him in truth, near to those who draw near to Him.
If you look for Him, you'll find him.
