Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. (Psalm 139:7-8)
The presence of God is all around us. Can you feel Godís presence right now in this very moment? God inhabits every part of our lives except for the parts that we refuse to share with Him. Would you agree? When we donít sense Godís presence in our daily routines, itís not because God leaves us, but itís because we have not developed a deep awareness of Godís presence in our lives. This process takes not only practice, but it also takes commitment and the willingness to surrender to Godís will throughout our lives.
Hereís some steps to recognize the presence of God:
ē Step 1: Do everything in your life for the love of God. It is important to give God your happiness and praises as well as your pain and suffering. God is always listening because He is your protector.
ē Step 2: Look for Godís goodness in all things. Remember, it is important to notice Godís presence in both simple and great things. Acknowledge this fact often throughout your life.
ē Step 3: Create stopping points in which to rest in God. Spend quality time throughout your day to pray, meditate and communicate with God.
Now, place yourself in the presence of God, breathe deeply and be aware of his loving kindness. Always remember to put God first in everything you do. Donít forget to acknowledge Godís presence in the simple and more complicated things in life. Spending quality time in Godís presence has to be a priority in life. I want to leave you with this scripture, ďDraw near to God and He will draw near to youĒ. (Hebrews 10:22)
