Let go…and awaken to life.

(Listen to my song “Breathe On Me” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Acts 17:26-28

“(God) fixed the ordered seasons and the boundaries of their regions, so that people might seek God, even perhaps grope for him and find him, though indeed he is not far from any one of us. For ‘In him we live and move and have our being.’”


Paul was speaking to the people of Athens who had idols of various gods everywhere.

Today’s scripture verse is what Paul said to describe the Christian God to them.

Paul’s understanding of “God” is clearly not of some old man with a beard somewhere out there looking down at us!

Paul tries to put into words what cannot be put into words.

He seems to be saying that God is everywhere…but not easily grasped.

Our God is not far away…but so very close to us…as close as our very breath.

Rest in that knowledge.
