Oswald Chambers Sept12/¶ 2 — No matter how distant the Father may seem, it is just that, He only seems far away but He is not. Often He shrouds His friendship; He wraps His fatherhood in a shadow, but He is always near no matter what might seem to the contrary.
Why? We don’t yet know but we will. (1 Cor 13:12) Now thru a dark glass, then face to face. Now in part, then in full. You are loved and pursued by a loving and yet mysterious God, your Heavenly Father. He is God; you are not. He doesn’t think and do as we do and think. Rest in that truth.
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
“Everyone who asks receives.” (Luke 11:10)
