28 But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds. Psalm 73:28
Suffice to say that there is no “down side” to close to God. The psalm writer Asaph knew that.
You know when you’re near Him, and you know when you’re not. Only you can be the judge of how close you are. With that closeness comes the ability – and some would even say responsibility – to tell others about it. Why? Because it’s a natural outflow of what’s happening inside.
As I’ve been writing recently, our closeness is a choice we make. The old agage is still true: “if you’re not close to God, who moved?” I would take that a step further and say that God actively pursues you (John 4:23, Luke 19:10. 2 Chronicles 16:9. Luke 15:4-7, Psalm 14:2) so when you move, it’s a willful step away.
How close are you?
