God is Ever-Present

Do you ever feel alone and abandoned? These are the times when we struggle on our own, forgetting that there is Someone with us, ready to care, guide, and strengthen us. God assures us we are never without Him as He is everywhere at once and is ever-present. Because His Spirit fills the heavens and the earth, He has the capability to always be with us. We can call on Him with confidence that He hears our prayers and that His Spirit intercedes for us even when we don’t know how or what to pray. This attitude about God can give us the peace and comfort knowing that we are never alone and through His Spirit stand firm in our faith.

Psalm 139:7-10: “ 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. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”

How will we know God is with us?

The comfort, peace, and strength we feel when we call on Him is from His presence.

Will God’s presence ever leave us?

God’s Spirit is always with us. Matthew 28:20: “ … and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Is God ever too busy for us?

God promises in Hebrews 13:5, “… Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Pray

Give thanks to God that He is always with us.

Heavenly Father,
Thank you for being a loving Father that never leaves me. I give you all the praise for the peace and comfort that your ever-present Spirit brings. I pray all I do and say reflects your presence.
In your Holy name I pray,
Amen

Many “new” things take place during the month of January. Something about inking new dates sparks our thoughts on how we might make improvements in our lives. For many, this includes a renewed push for spiritual change. In the midst of nature’s winter rest, our hearts have time to consider all that God has done for us. Then, with reverent fear and humble praise, ask how you can make the most of the time you have remaining.

I love celebrating the birthdays of my children and grandchildren. To me, they are the most precious people on Earth. But what if we only acknowledged our family members on their birthdays? Sometimes that’s how we treat Jesus.

Delete the Junk

Much like an email file, many of us store our confessed sins in a deleted file that we keep buried inside our souls. This unseen but ever-present file keeps us tethered to our past mistakes, thereby preventing us from enjoying an abundant, victorious life in Christ. One of the greatest New Year’s resolutions we can make is to forgive ourselves of past mistakes.
