The Distance between You and God

The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. But the man who loves God is known by God.” 1 Corinthians 8:2-3

You may think this is crazy but I am going to tell you many times without stopping that without God in your life, then you are NOTHING!

When a man believes he has it all without God, he is simply saying that he owns his life and that he created himself. And this man is ignorant. He may be reacting deliberately or out of event that happens to him but then, must he get to that point where he should condemn God?

If you reach the stage whereby life does not have any value to you, then you should watch out. Knowledge rotates everyday. It does not belong to anyone. God alone has all authorities over the wisdom, the knowledge and the understanding of life. It is to Him you are to go to when you need to clarify issues in your life. If you say you are capable of knowing everything in life, then where is the space you leave for God to rule in this world? Where is that big space in your heart that you give to God to live?

A man who loves God has nothing to lose. He has only secured his life and his future. Without God in a man’s life, that person is emptied. He is like a shell without its owner and in the days when the waves come, it will just carry the shell (him) away without any help coming to him.

And it is the positive side for a man who acknowledges God in his life. He shows he has respect for divinity, for spiritual values and for everything pertaining to God. There is no way God will not make Himself known to this man.

I don’t have to boast to you here. I am a living testimony, I mean, a woman who has gone through it all, tested it all and finally come to that realisation that God; only Him alone has all the power and authority of my life. I did not just accept God overnight to preside over my life. I passed the storms, the waves and of course the troubles seas. That I am telling you all the time about God is because I know where you can find the everlasting peace, love and happiness you are looking for. You can find them all in God.

Wait, if you are not convinced, I want you to take this bold step, put aside all that you rely on, all those gods or materials you focused on, and come to God for a while. I bet you are not going to go back. God does not need your money before He can allow you into His presence. He needs you to acknowledge the price paid on your behalf; Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son.

Everything is done for you. All you need is come to Him, the author and the finisher of your Faith. You may have diverted or wavered in your faith, I am here to tell you that it is not too late. God is a God of many chances who spreads His love everywhere and forever waiting for you to come back.

Remember, there is no distance between you and God. It is your imagination. He is right there by your side. He hears you. He sees what you are doing.  He knows what you are after, and what you are going through. He knows when you go to bed and when you wake up. He knows all your movements for that day even before you know them. He is waiting for you to break that imaginary gap you create between you and Him, and come to Him.

  1. Hi! I agree with so much of what you’ve said, particularly the part, “that without God in your life, then you are NOTHING!” So true, so true! And I indeed know that I am nothing. That’s because I know that God is not in my life, or at least in the way the passages below make clear. I know that His being in my life has NO THING TO DO WITH ANY CHOICE OR ACTION I MAKE OR TAKE! I also know that it is still possible for God to save me.

    Pay attention to what the LORD is saying. There is nothing to suggest that we have ANYTHING to do with our salvation. Rather, HE does it all.

    Respectfully, what you’ve written leads others to believe they can each have a say, and that is the FURTHEREST from the truth. Personal salvation DOES NOT involve OUR faith in Christ. It DOES involve the faith OF Christ. It is HIS WORKS that saves us, not the other way around.

    It is pure human arrogance to think that the God of the Bible, one who can speak and things come into being, sits patiently and waits for us to make up our pin-headed minds as to our acceptance or rejection of Him.

    Ezekiel 36:22-38: “Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you. And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen. Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations. Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel. Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it. Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.”

    It is likely that I will never hear from you again. Be that as it no doubt may, may the LORD richly bless you.

    1. Thanks Bill,

      Sure, you are going to here from me again.

      I believe there is a clear misunderstanding here about this post. It is the faith of Christ that saves us all and I know that? I really don’t mean we have a say in here because without the Grace of God, no one can be saved.

      Really I bet you misunderstood me here.

      May the Lord richly bless you too.
