“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever-the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17 NIV
Read: John 14:14-21
Have you ever wanted to reach out to someone and felt they were just out of reach. The truth is they were probably ‘just within reach’. We are under the constant influence of Satan and he knows each of us well. Whenever we are in a situation to do good, he is there to remind us of imagined limits or lack of confidence.
Satan does not want you reaching out to others. But Satan does not keep you from doing what you should do. The decision is yours not Satan’s. His fallen angels will put obstacles in your path to discourage your efforts. You will find by doing what GOD wants you to do is more achievable than you expected.
There are other times we put ourselves ‘just out of reach’ of others. We can have an attitude which is displayed to others as ‘just don’t bother me’. It is times like these that we probably need the caring attention of others the most. We place ourselves out of reach when we think we can handle problems without help.
In all situations there is one thing we can depend upon. GOD. We know JESUS is at the right hand of GOD, knowing all that is going on in our lives. GOD is always within your reach. We also know the HOLY SPIRIT is alive in us if we have been born again. The HOLY SPIRIT is more than within reach. Think about it, you can feel HIS presence.
Don’t hide yourself from GOD’S reach.
Today’s prayer: “LORD, Thank YOU for always being with me and never out of reach. Help me to draw closer to you throughout my day. Amen.”
