In His Presence

Do you sense God’s presence or do you think He is far away?

I share an incident once told by a foreign missionary; at that time, she was classified as retired. That didn’t last long. Along with her husband, she returned to the foreign missions field of service. When describing her relationship with God, she said something that inspired me.

She said that on one occasion she quickly jumped into the driver’s seat of her car and threw her purse onto the passenger seat. Experiencing the LORD’s presence continually, she apologized to Him out loud. She was sorry for throwing her purse onto His seat!

He is with you; He is with me. Do others recognize His presence in our lives?

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘It will yet be that peoples will come, even the inhabitants of many cities. The inhabitants of one will go to another, saying, ‘Let us go at once to entreat the favor of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts; I will also go.’ So many peoples and mighty nations will come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the favor of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘In those days ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you (Zechariah 8:20-23 NASB).”’’’

Jesus, Immanuel (God with us)…

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,’ which translated means, ‘God with us (Matthew 1:23 NASB).”
