What is Gods actual location?
Where is He?
Why did Jesus feel like God had “forsaken” Him when He was on the cross?
What part does this play in the Amazing Grace Journey?
“Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?”They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.” – Daniel 3:24-25
If you have ever felt like God abandoned you, you are Definitely Not alone! In fact I would say that every being who has ever walked the earth to include Jesus Himself has felt that way. This is why it was so important for Jesus to feel that and say what He did on the cross.
In our state of processing what we think is Gods abandonment of us Are the Greatest opportunities to grow Faith that we will ever face. So let me be very clear about Gods location:
GOD IS HERE!
When I combine this with the last study “Gods watch” and the lesson from that passage where Jesus spoke, we learn an invaluable spiritual reality and meditation:
Breathe in and say:
Breathe out and say:
“Here and Now”
I find it’s very beneficial to make the exhale longer than the inhale and in fact make it as long as you can. Typically stress leaves our body on exhales.
The reason why this is so very important to The GraceFull Journey is that this journey is one of growing Faith and not legalistic observances. To build True Faith we need to keep coming back to The Who, Who Is our complete sufficiency and an understanding of Him which is to say knowing:
1)GOD IS LOVE
2)GOD RADICALLY LOVES YOU
3)GOD RADICALLY LOVES ME
Knowing these 3 as our Truth we can Know that God Is Here Now no matter what fiery furnace we are dancing in with Him!
