“Am I only a God nearby,” declares the Lord, “and not a God far away? Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord. “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 23: 23-24 (NIV)
God is always in the process of revealing to us what He is like. There are three questions in today's verses that we believe are intended to help us know God better. As we read the verses we can see that the last question actually contains the answer to the first two. “Am I only a God that is nearby and not a God that is far away?” No, God is everywhere. He fills heaven and earth. He fills all of His creation. He wants us all to know this because it reveals what a wonderful God He is. There is nowhere that God is not and so no matter where we are, near or far, he is there with us. He is drawing us near to Him and as He is with us today, He is and will be with us tomorrow and forever – He fills our world and beyond.
