God is Not Quarantined

Does it feel like you are a prisoner in your own home? Before all this we would be trying to find a way to stay home and not have to run so much. Now we are trying to think of places to go just so we can get out. It is odd how we react to the same set of circumstances at different times. We might like to take a nap in the afternoon but if we are quarantined, we are too anxious to nap.
 
God can be everywhere in any time or place. He can be with us whether we are at home, at the church building or anywhere between. God can be everywhere and interact with everyone all at the same time. It is hard for us to imagine that he can do that when we face issues of internet slowdown and being able to stream and find ways to connect with people. God is always connected. God is always with us and it doesn’t take microseconds for him to connect. God is not quarantined, and he does not experience technical difficulties.
 
As we adapt to changes it is important to know that God is the one constant. He has not changed his mind in what he wants. He has not changed who he loves. He does not change what he has scheduled. He can go anywhere, and he can still be close with anyone. There is not a social distance needed with God. He comes to interact with all of us in a very personal way.
 
With all the ways we have of connecting today we are doing fairly well for being isolated. We are alone but we still have communication with other people. It is not the same as being with them, but we are able to interact with them. We are able to be in quarantine, but it isn’t like time out facing the corner. We can talk to God through prayer. We are able to call, text and email each other. We are not without connection. We should be closer to God than ever as we face difficulties. We may be limited in some ways of touching or being close to each other, but those don’t apply to God. God is able to be with us wherever we are.
