Elohim Mikarov

Jeremiah 23:23 - 24 (NKJV) - “Am I a God near at hand,” says the Lord, “And not a God afar off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the Lord; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord.

Elohim Mikarov - huh? THat's The God Who is Near in Hebrew.

Do you find yourself thinking of God out there? Do you often think that He is in Heaven someplace? God speaking through the prophet Jeremiah reminds the Israelites that He is not out there only, but that He is near at hand. 

God is present to hear every conversation you have, see every action you make, to actually know every thought you think. When we ponder this truth - what difference would that make if we truly believed it? Would we live any differently? In truth, God is right here, present with us. If we saw God with us, would it make a difference if we started to gossip about someone? Would it change our television habits? would our language change? How about our honesty and integrity? Well, He is right here - and He is the One who says it.

Muse over how your life would change if God was standing right beside you. And realize that He is.
