God promises to always be with us, to never leave us. Yet at times we can question this as we feel all alone and seem to have lost touch with our creator. But we must remember His promise as it is always us that creates the separation or the distance.
It can happen in big things and in little things. In Exodus 32 Moses has been gone up the mountain just long enough for Aaron and the people to start worrying. Moses is their connection to God. The solution? Gather up all the gold and make a new god to worship and be led by. Seems crazy now but at the time I’m sure it make perfect sense.
It can happen in our lives too. We can easily allow ourselves to be drawn into conversations and activities that have God nowhere in sight. When we suddenly realize where we’ve wandered to we ask, “How’d we get here?!” Thankfully we serve a merciful God. He says, “Yup, I’m still here” and “Welcome back my child”. And just like that we are back in a right relationship with our creator. Praise be to God!!
