God sticks closer to you than anyone else. He is literally always there. King David wrote most of the Psalms, and he talks about God’s constant presence in Psalm 139, verses 7-10: Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast. [NIV Bible]
All of the moments of your life, God is there. When you’re rolling into the MRI machine; when you’re walking into a job interview; when you’re sitting at a teacher’s conference; when you’re talking to a bill collector. All of the tough times, and all of the good times, too.
When we refer to “being there” for someone, we are talking about giving them support when they need us. God is our ultimate help because He is with us when no one else can be. People may encourage you before you go into surgery, but God is there when you close your eyes and when you open them, in the recovery room and in the hospital room.
We don’t have to send a text, leave a voice mail or shoot an email. We don’t have to wait for God to be “in”. God wants us to bring all of our feelings and our circumstances and our situations to Him. He has an interest in every part of our lives.
In your mind or out loud, talk to God. Tell Him anything and everything. Ask Him to help you, to give you strength, to give you calm. The door is always open with God. He’s always home and you’re always welcome!
