Your Name is Near

leave a comment »

“We give thanks to you, O God . . . for your name is near.” (Psalm 75:1)

“As for me, it is good to be near God.” (Psalm 73:28)

“The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18)

“Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8)

The “nearness” of God to those who call on Him is a very precious reality. No matter our circumstances; indeed, when our circumstances are at their worst, God promises to be near. He promises that He is “a very present help in times of trouble.” (Psalm 46:1). And God’s nearness is better than any human nearness, for God has all resources, all power to comfort emotionally and physically, all authority to keep the spiritual forces of darkness at bay.

With God near to us, we will not be shaken. So let us draw near to Him and rejoice that He is inexplicably near to us.
