James 4:8 (NKJV) Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
In the quiet early morning, as the sun’s first rays glisten over the horizon, we may sense the presence of God. But as the day wears on and the demands of everyday life weigh down upon us, we may become so wrapped up in earthly concerns that we forget to praise the Lord God our Creator. It can easily happen to all of us!
Nevertheless, God is everywhere we have ever been and everywhere we will ever be (Omnipresent is the Theological name). When we turn to the Lord often, we are blessed by His presence. But, if we ignore God’s presence or resist it altogether, the world in which we live soon becomes a spiritual wasteland.
Since God is everywhere, we are free to sense His presence whenever we take the time to quiet our souls and turn our prayers to Him. But sometimes, amid the incessant demands of everyday life, we turn our thoughts far from God; when we do, we suffer.
Are you weary and tired, discouraged or fearful? Be encouraged today because God is with you. Are you confused? Listen to the quiet voice of your Divine Father. Are you bitter? Talk with the Lord and seek Godly guidance. Are you celebrating a great victory? Thank God and praise Him. He is the Giver of all things good. In whatever condition you find yourself, whether you are happy or sad, victorious or vanquished, troubled or triumphant, celebrate God’s presence. And be comforted in the knowledge that God is not just near you always. Sisters and brother’s God is here with you.
