You’re Too Far Away!!
Break your silence!
Talk to God…
About what you’re experiencing…
Let His Holy Spirit guide you through your life…
When you feel far from Him…
Whisper His Name!
Find a quiet place…
Away from the noise of this world…
Where you can be alone with God!
Speak to Jesus in Love-tones!
To have a relationship with Him!
Prepare to receive His Love!
It flows eternally from the Cross!
Seek His Face!
Hear His Voice!
He’ll hear yours!
He’s delighted that you opened your heart…
To His Presence!
Take His Hand!
He’s already bridged the distance!
By running to you!
By sending His Son to die for you…
Go the distance!
He came to hear you cry out for Him!
He wants to commune with you!
“His eyes search to and fro throughout the earth…
Looking for one whose heart is seeking Him…” (2 Chronicles 16:9)
“I Am with you
and will watch over you wherever you go,
and I will bring you back to this land.
I will not leave you
until I have done what I have promised you.”
And when you meet Him???
(Read Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
April 4th Devotional-Pg. 99
and April 8th-Pg.103)
“God shows His love
in spanning the canyon between mankind and Himself
with the humble cross.”
-Shawn Craig –
Phillips, Craig & Dean
You could’ve waited…
But You couldn’t stand the distance…
You wouldn’t bare the silence anymore
Love broke the fall…
Bridged across to reach us…
You opened Heaven’s door…
‘Cause You couldn’t stand the distance!
You saw the love I needed…
You ran to where I was waiting…
Your love crossed the canyon between us…
You came to save me!
In Your mercy…
You ran to me…
Your forgiveness embraced me…
It called me by name…
You couldn’t stand the distance…
1 John 4:19
“We love because He first loved us.”
1 John 4:10
“This is love:
not that we loved God,
but that He loved us
and sent His Son
as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”
“…When God created mankind,
He made them in the likeness of God.”
“I will walk among you
and be your God,
and you will be My people.”
“Here I am!
I stand at the door and knock.
If anyone hears My Voice and opens the door,
I will come in and eat with that person,
and they with Me.”
“You are My friends
if you do what I command.
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.”
“But now in Christ Jesus
you who once were far away
have been brought near
by the blood of Christ.”
God could never stand the distance between us…
Or my silence…
And when I no longer could stand it either…
He sent Jesus to bridge the gap…
And we connected!
