Quote to Consider:

John Gill: "I am a God near, saith the Lord, and not afar off"... which is a very great truth; and a very comfortable one it is to the people of God, to whom He is near in all places, and at all times; He is a present help in time of trouble; He is near them, to hear their cries, and grant their requests; He is near to give them assistance in a time of need, and to deliver them out of all their troubles; to afford them His gracious presence, and to indulge them with communion with himself; to communicate all good things to them; to speak comfortably to them; to take them by the hand, and lead them in the way everlasting: He is at their right hand to uphold them with His, and to strengthen them with strength in their souls; to advise and counsel, and direct them; to rebuke their enemies, and save them from them that condemn them; and indeed there are no people like them, who have God so nigh unto them, in all things they call upon Him for, and though He may seem at times to be afar off, and stand at a distance from them; when He hides His face; withdraws His gracious influences; does not appear at once for their relief in distress; but suffers them to be afflicted in one way or another; yet in reality He is not; but is nigh unto them when they call upon Him: and this truth is as uncomfortable and dreadful to wicked men, who cannot go from His spirit, or flee from His presence; which is everywhere, in heaven and hell, in the earth and seas, even in the uttermost parts of them; there His eye is upon them, and His right hand can reach them: He is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent."
