I’m into day four of 40 Days in the Word by Pastor Rick Warren. While I was snow plowing the driveway today 🙂 , I was thinking about today’s devotional video on how God is always with us (ever present) and how prayer can and should be a constant open communication with our ever present God, not just in bite size memorized prayers.
This prompted me to think about how many times I have heard that God cannot be next to sin. If this is true, then truly God can not be ever present with me, or any other human except Jesus himself. It’s interesting because all through the Bible God is in the presence of evil and even Satan himself. (e.g., Job 1:6; 2 Chron. 18:18-21; Rev. 12:10).
So how can both of the these positions be correct?
Simple…God is never next to sin because he removes it through the blood of Jesus Christ, so he in turn can stand ever present and directly beside YOU and ME!
