For Jesus, Remote is In-Person
From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind. (Psalm 33:13, NIV)
We are learning and can do so many things remotely now days: hold meetings, work from home, conduct medical appointments, receive, and give counsel, check up on friends and family, learn and study. During the Pandemic we have increased in knowledge and skills to do things remotely and even be very productive and apt in this area.
For the Lord, from his throne in heaven he can do anything, all things. He can look at this world he created, run the universe, make determinations, stop, and start, but he can also tend to his beloved creation and humankind. He can heal us, touch us, strengthen us, guide, and direct us, deliver us; there is nothing he cannot do, including pour out blessings and cause wonders and miracles to come into our life. Although he is with us in our daily lives, and as close as his own Spirit to dwell with and within us. from his heavenly position he not only hears our prayers but can give us all we need to have, what a comfort to know that for God remotely also means-in person. Let’s Pray
Our dear Father, you are as far as heaven, but you are also nearby. Even if you never left your seat in heaven you would still be right here with us, every step of the way, every hour of the day and night. Amen
