Remember that song “God is watching from a distance?” by Bette Midler
From a distance the world looks blue and green
And the snow capped mountains white
From a distance the ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight
From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes through the land.
From a distance we all have enough
And no one is in need
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease
No hungry mouths to feed
From a distance we are instruments
Marching in a common band.
God is watching us
God is watching us
God is watching us from a distance.
From a distance you look like my friend
Even though we are at war
From a distance I just cannot comprehend
What all this fightings for.
What Bette Midler is saying is that God doesn’t see, He doesn’t feel, and that He doesn’t care for any of us at all.
Nothing could be father from the truth.
I Am a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Jer 23:23a
God is right here, reach out your hand, He is right here.
He sees every look, and every movement.
He hears every thought and every whisper.
And God does care.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jer 29:11
An expected end, to escort you into Eternity, that is His greatest desire for you.
The truth is God wants the absolute very best for you. He thinks of you and smiles.
He created you unique, you are one of a kind, and you are very special.
The distance that Bette Midler was speaking of was the distance that she has placed between herself and God.
Her Famous statement “Men and Religion are worthless” says it all.
She wants no part of God.
However Bette Midler has a very serious problem?
On Judgment day the distance will close, she will be on her knees facing “The Creator of the universe.”
She will have to give an account and explain to God why she kept Him at a distance?
And she will be cast into a lake of fire and the distance between herself and God will be eternal, and there she will be forgotten forever.
How about you, are you keeping God at a distance?
