God Is Closer Than You Think

If God is always with us, why is He so hard to find?

God Is Closer Than You Think is authored by John Ortberg who also wrote If You Want To Walk On Water You Have To Get Out Of The Boat. He is obviously a short title book writer.

God promises that he will be with us always, but yet for most He seems to be so far away. This book discusses this predicament using two popular themes, the painting of God and Adam in the Sistine Chapel and the Where Is Waldo book.

I found this book to be very easy to read and very thought provoking. I think you will enjoy it.

There were several quotes that really sparked my mind, here are a few.

“The story of the Bible isn’t primarily about the desire of people to be with God; it’s the desire of God to be with people.”

“Spiritual growth, in a sense, is simply increasing our capacity to experience the presence of God.”

“Every thought holds the promise of carrying me into God’s presence.”

“I can be quite confident that thoughts that move me toward a paralyzed anxiety are not from God.”

These are just brief excerpts from the book, there are many more thought provoking stories. If you sometimes wonder where God is this book may help you see him more often.
