Come to God Now

People try to come to God in certain places. Some attend church services, but they may not come to God. Others take trips to distant places, thinking surely they will come to God there. Some follow a celebrity who has a reputation for helping people come to God. People have so many different ideas about coming to God, and yet they are disappointed time and time again.

So, you've tried to come to God in different places and various ways, and it seems like none of these work for you. Maybe, you even give up, and you think nobody can really come to God. So, is there an answer? Absolutely. Are you ready for the truth? You can come to God now anywhere and anytime. He is right there where you are. You can come to God now, right where you are.

The Bible teaches that God is everywhere. He is not a distant deity. He is God here and now, and everywhere. You don't see God, because God is like the air you breathe, unseen but so real. Also, like the air you breathe, God sustains your life every minute, every day. He's there with you now.

Because you cannot see God with your eyes, you must come to Him by faith. That's the only way you can come to God anywhere. Talk to Him. Tell Him what's on your mind. Don't worry about using a special religious vocabulary. Be real with Him; He will become real to you. "So, you see, it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him" (Hebrews 11:6, NLT). Come to God now.
