4:4-5

without comments

4 Rejoice in the Lord always: again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your forbearance be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

If God is everywhere, how can He be at hand with some and far from others (unbelievers)?  If He is with and in all believers, how can we draw nearer to Him than we already are (Jas. 4:8)?  This has to be describing it in relational terms rather than spatial (intimacy verses distance)  or perhaps revealing His tokens of favor verses withholding His grace. 

Anyway, I like God being near/at hand.   But, if He always seem like that, then I guess I will take His nearness for granted.
