Live In His Presence

My friend went to work one morning. He had his chef’s apron and hat on as he walked into the workroom. A coworker said, “Hi Jim, how are you?” He replied, “I’m just fine.” Then he dropped to his knees and died. He had a massive aneurysm. We have no guarantee of our next minute.

Trust lives in the present moment in His Presence. Fears, regrets, worries, doubts, and unbeliefs are hidden dross in our faith. Our hope is eternal. 1 Peter 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 

His Presence is with us moment by moment, because He dwells within us. Hebrews 6:19 says, “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil.”

We breathe in His Presence with every breath. Jeremiah 23:24 says, “…Do I not fill heaven and earth? says the Lord.” He is Infinite, and has no boundaries. As His children, we have the privilege to come anytime and be still in His Presence, bask in His love, and partake of His manifold nature.

Here are David’s words. May they be the echo in our hearts as well. Psalm 63:1 says, “O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.”
