Where do I find God?

July 21st, 2009 No comments

Psalm 73:28 – “But it is good for me to draw near to God…”

Adam and Eve walked in the garden with God. Enoch walked with God. We are encouraged in the Bible to walk with God. 1 John 1:7 says, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth; us from all sin.” I find God wherever I am obedient to Him. When I live close to Him I sense the intensity of the relationship.

I do have favorite times and places to communicate with God. I prefer to speak to Him at length in the quiet of the early morning. At other times I enjoy talking to Him as I walk along or when I am in the solitude of my car driving down the highway. Of course, there are the short conversations we have when things are not going well. It doesn’t take long to tell Him what my problem is and then return to the task at hand. On those occasions I don’t wait for an answer for I know that He will bring the answer to me when He chooses it is best.

Where and when I find God are not nearly as important, however, as whether I find God. The finding is not His obligation but mine. It is my desire to keep close to Him. I want to walk with Him continually as did Enoch. I must daily make this choice.
