Act 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
Act 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
Act 17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
The providence of God is something that is very important for us to understand. The God that is revealed in the pages of the Bible is NOT a god who lives only in some ethereal realm that cannot be known. He is the type of God who is not far from every one of us: And if this is true for the unsaved then He closer to you as a saved child of His, so close that He has chosen to live within you. And because he is in you, he directs your life now from the inside out.
If there is any purpose for this series of sermons it would be to help you begin to take a closer look at your life, to open your eyes to the working of God around you, to look back at your life and glorify God for how He brought you to where you are right now. If you are saved ( and I pray that you are) today, then how was it that you got saved? Who was involved? Which scriptures impacted you? What is God doing in your life right now? Where is He leading you?
If you are not saved, God wants you to know that He is not far from you and wants you to find Him.
Jesus promised that;
Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mat 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
