Why are you searching for God?
Where is God?
In the event that you are a devotee to Jesus Christ, God is with you, close to you, above you, and inside you. God’s nearness and vigilant care never abandon you. In the event that you are not an adherent to Jesus Christ, God is directly before you, welcoming you, drawing you, offering you the affection, leniency, and effortlessness that He aches to give you. In the event that you are uncertain of your association with God through Jesus Christ, please read our article on the most proficient method to “Get right with God.” Perhaps a superior inquiry than “Where is God?” is “The place would you say you are, in relationship to God?”
The Invisible God Revealed
As we study mankind’s history, particularly religious history, do we discover any occurrences where God “touched the paper” of our reality? Consider that God’s “finger” has touched our reality in a man known as Jesus Christ. Jesus asserted to be God1, said that to see him was to see God2, said that he was the main individual who had come specifically from God to our world3, and excused individuals of their transgressions, which no one but God can do.4 Many different entries of the New Testament insist Jesus’ deity.5 He was God who “got to be fragile living creature and made his abode among us.”6 He is the “picture of the undetectable God.”7
In the event that we are the “level individuals” it bodes well that the multi-dimensional Creator God entered our four-dimensional world by turning into a person. He uncovered himself to us. Be that as it may, why might God do that?
Why He Came
There is a story recounted an old agriculturist who lived without anyone else’s input in a lodge. Alongside his lodge was an animal dwelling place. One extremely cool frigid night, flying creatures started to collide with the windows of his warm lodge, attempting to get away from the destructive frosty. So the old man went outside and opened the outbuilding entryway. It was warm inside the horse shelter. He waved his arms and yelled at the winged creatures to go into the stable, into security. Be that as it may, they didn’t comprehend him.
It was then that the old man longed that he could get to be one of them. On the off chance that he could turn into a winged animal, then he could lead alternate feathered creatures into the horse shelter, to maintain a strategic distance from death. What’s more, right then and there the old rancher comprehended why Jesus had come. In spite of the fact that the old man couldn’t turn into a flying creature, God could turn into a man. So he did. “For God so adored the world that he sent his unrivaled Son, that whoever has faith in him should not die, but rather have unceasing life.”8
It regards realize that God is ubiquitous (all over at one time)— it is one of His characteristics. Agreeing with His inescapability are the properties of omniscience (all learning) and transcendence (all force). These ideas are excessive for us people to understand, yet God realizes that, as well (Isaiah 55:8). God fills His creation and is generally present in individual, in comprehension, and in force at all times. “He is not a long way from any of us” (Acts 17:27).
On a more individual level, God is with all devotees today in that His Holy Spirit indwells us. This indwelling can just happen on the off chance that one is conceived once more (John 3:3). Initially John 5:11-12 lets us know it is Jesus who indwells us: “This is the confirmation: God has given us unceasing life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” And Jesus said the Father comes to dwell with us: “Any individual who cherishes me will comply with my instructing. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them” (John 14:23).
In Galatians 2:20 Paul says, “Christ lives in me.” Then in 3:5 he says that God has given us His Spirit. In verses 26-27, he says that adherents are “purified through water into Christ” and are “dressed” with Christ. (God is as close as our attire!) Galatians 5 then examines the product of the Spirit and states in verse 25, “Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in venture with the Spirit.” With numerous such verses as these, unmistakably God is in three Persons and that each of the Three abide in all conceived again devotees—at all times (Matthew 28:20).
One of Jesus’ titles is “Immanuel,” which signifies “God with us” (Matthew 1:23). At the point when Jesus came into this world, He was really, actually “God with us.” Because God is with us, we realize that we will never be isolated from His adoration (Romans 8:38-39). God’s nearness guarantees us that we can fulfill His will for us (1 Chronicles 22:17-19). God’s nearness conquers our apprehension, stress, and disappointment (Hebrews 13:5).
The Holy Spirit in us is continually appealing to God for us (Romans 8:26). We are advised to implore without stopping (1 Thessalonians 5:17), which implies we ought to keep up a mentality of supplication and responsiveness to verbalize petition to God at whatever point He leads. He is close to His kids, mindful to their cry (Psalm 34:15).
We ought to check that we are without a doubt strolling with the Lord our God by frequently counseling His Word, fellowshipping with different devotees, and looking for virtuous direction from ministers, Christian advocates, and Christian companions. We ought to have the mentality that we are at all times in service with the Lord. The Holy Spirit will lead us. We will see God at work. God is alive, and He is close. He needs to convey and collective with us. That is the delight of the Christian life.
God Bless you as you open your heart to follow Christ Jesus who die for you and me.
