“And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age….” Matthew 28:20
There has never been a time that God was not present. There never will be. In the words of Jesus, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.”

God is a Spirit, so He exists infinitely, eternally and omnipresent. He fills the universe with His presence at every moment. He always has and always will!
So, what does that mean for me?
It means it is very important and extremely beneficial for you to learn to live in His presence as David did. David mastered the discipline of being fully present in the presence of God!

In Psalm 139 he expressed it like this:
“7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” 12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! 18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand—when I awake, I am still with you.”

As a realization of the power of living in the presence of God, David concludes:
“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.”

Wow! How powerful is that?

What could happen in your life if your chose to live like David and practice the presence of an ever-present God?

Why not find out?

Why not decide to intentionally limit the distractions in your life, find a quiet place, meditate and listen for His voice. It will require effort and discipline. It won’t happen immediately. Start where David ended in his Psalm. Ask God to search you and know your heart and your anxious thoughts. Invite the searchlight of God’s Spirit into the most private areas of your heart and mind.

The only limitations on the presence of an Omnipresent God, are those you place on Him through your busyness, your distractions, your disobedience and your self-centeredness.

Why not welcome Him in today?
