God exists in the exact. When we tell someone the exact nature of our wrongs, we are entering God’s time and space. It’s in the exact that we find that God was always present. In the depths of our despair, He was there, exactly in that moment and exactly in that place. When we disclose our past, we find God in the very moments we felt lost and abandoned. God was always with us, not lost, not nearby, but with us. He was exactly where we experienced the most pain and felt the most distant from Him.
Exact is defined as being precise, as opposed to approximate God works in the exact. When we confess the exact nature of our wrongs, we are actually revealing moments of God’s exactness in our lives.
God is exactly right here and right now with all of us. God is not close or nearby. He is exactly here and now with each of us.
