How close is God? Superstring and mulitple dimensions
Does God care? I mean, does He really hear us when we pray, when we cry out to Him? After all, He's up there in heaven sitting on His throne with the universe to run. Why should He care if my heart is broken or if I'm sick or my son lost his job? I don't know about you, but sometimes it feels like my words are floating into thin air when I pray. I don't feel like God is even there. I ask Him to talk to me and I still hear nothing. I read the Bible and it seems dry. How about you? Do you have days, even weeks like that? Where is God?
I believe that those "dry" spells are most likely my fault. Yes, God is silent sometimes when we haven't done the last thing He told us to do, but more often than not, He's talking to us, but our spirit-ears just aren't listening, our spiritual eyes aren't seeing all the signs around us. Why? could be a number of things.. maybe we have a sin we've yet to repent of, maybe we are too worried, too caught up in the things of the world. Maybe our faith had taken a nose dive. Those are the topics for another post. In this post, and in a very elementary way, I hope to bring encouragement by explaining to you just how close God really is.
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! 1 John 3:1
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
The Bible calls us God's Children. For those of you who have children, you know that if your child needs to speak to you, you stop everything and listen. If you're like me, you'd do anything to help your children and you love to have them close. God is the same way. Actually, He's much better. He promises never to leave us. Ever. Which means there is no distance between us and God. He's not millions of miles away in some heavenly throne room. He's right beside you. Within inches. Here's how.
We live in 3 dimensions. Length, Height, Depth, plus a forth one, Time. But due to Super String Theory, Scientists are now saying that there could be up to TEN other dimensions past our own. This is incredibly exciting! Why? Because it means there's another realm past our own that we can't see, touch or feel, but it is as real or even more real than our own. (Hasn't the Bible been saying that all along?). I'm no scientist but the best way I can explain this is to use the example of Two-Dimensions. If we lived in a two dimensional world ( + time) we would be like stick figures drawn on a paper. We will ourselves Mr. and Mrs. Flat. We could only see to the right or left of us but not in front or behind because those exist in the third dimension of depth. Make sense? But those beings who lived in that third dimension could see us, hear us, etc. The only way we could see them is if they chose to reveal themselves. For example, if I'm living beyond the 2-demsional world. and I stick a pencil between Mr. and Mrs Flat, they will see only the circle where the pencil intersects their world.
Do you ever wonder how Jesus appeared and disappeared after His resurrection? His glorified body could live in both the Spirit Realm (extra dimensions) and our realm (3-dimensions)
So, why do I say this? Because I think sometimes we think of God as being out there far away somewhere too busy to deal with us. In truth, He's right beside you. He's watching you, loving you, perhaps even stroking your hair. He's within reach of us all, caring and pouring out His love on us. He hears every word, knows every concern, fear, worry, heartache.
The only thing keeping us in our 3-dimensional world is our physical bodies. When they die, our spirits step out of them like an old suit of clothes and enter the other dimensions of the spirit realm as naturally as if we opened our front door and walked out. It's that simple, that easy and nothing to fear at all.
Yes, The Spirit Realm is real, and now Scientists can prove its existence. God is but a breath away, in the very room where you are sitting and reading this now. I don't know about you, but this really brought me great comfort. So, if you're having trouble connecting with God, try picturing Him sitting right beside you and then pour your heart out and listen for His answer. Deep in your spirit, you may find a sense of overwhelming love and peace will start to well up that will amaze you! I pray it is so the next time you pray!
