I've been asking the Lord to help me be more aware of His presence in my life, and when I read today's passage in Jesus Calling (by Sarah Young), I heard him speaking:
I AM WITH YOU, watching over you constantly. I am Emmanuel (God with you); My Presence enfolds you in radiant Love. Nothing, including the brightest blessings and the darkest trials, can separate you from Me. Some of My children find Me more readily during dark times, when difficulties force them to depend on Me. Others feel closer to Me when their lives are filled with good things. They respond with thanksgiving and praise, thus opening wide the door to My Presence.
I know precisely what you need to draw nearer to Me. Go through each day looking for what have prepared for you. Accept every event as My hand-tailored provision for your needs. When you view your life this way, the most reasonable response is to be thankful. Do not reject any of my gifts; find Me in every situation.
I read Robin's post from yesterday and clicked on the following passage (Psalm 23) from The Voice...
That was such an encouragement to me. I hope you found it the same.
Have you ever had those "dual loves notes"from God? Sometimes––just keepin' it real here, as they say––I've had "dual discipline notes" from God too. Those aren't nearly as fun, but they do get my attention. And even in the discipline and in the learning (and re-learning), I sense his love. His Eternal Presence.
