Mention His Name

Those who devise wicked schemes are near,
but they are far from your law.
151 Yet you are near, Lord,
and all your commands are true. Psalm 119:150-151

As we walk through life, we really have to be reminded that God is near despite the evil and wickedness we see and face all day.

There’s no doubt in my mind that evil lurks all around us. Most of the time we’re unaware of just how close it is. Partly that’s because we think that since we live relatively normal lives that so does everybody else.

Acknowledge God as if He were in the same room as we are because He really is that close. So, whether you happen to be in a bad part of town, across the ocean in a foreign land, or just reading through some of the heinous acts the news often presents us, know that God is, as the song says, “as close as the mention of His name.””

I know, this is Prayer 101, but life throws a lot at us so we need to be reminded of just how close God is.
