I am always aware of the Lord’s presence; he is near, and nothing can shake me – (Psalm 16:8)
A person who recognizes God’s presence in his life is truly blessed. It doesn’t matter what he faces or goes through, He knows that God is with him!
One of the famous Old Testament personalities, Joseph, is a good example (Genesis 37 – 47). From a very young age, he started having encounters with God in the form of dreams. Though some in his own family did not like this ‘dream thing’, Joseph recognized God’s abiding presence in his life.
He went through some real bad situations from his family as well as foreigners. He experienced trials and triumphs. Whether in the pit, prison, Potiphar’s place or palace, all along, Joseph was aware that God was with him.
Recognizing God’s abiding presence in your life has great benefits. It will help you live with an attitude of confidence regardless of what you face daily. It will also motivate you to live clean and be all that God has called you to be.
Are you shaken because of something you are facing right now? One of the best solutions is to run to God and pour out your heart to Him. Spend some time in His Word (Bible). As you do, you will sense God’s presence around you! And that will break shakiness and produce confidence.
Positive thinking and motivating talks alone have only limited value. But when you spend quality time with the heavenly Father, you become aware of His presence and love surrounding you. Then you will be flooding with positive thoughts! Then you will be motivated to accomplish remarkable things!
Jesus has promised us that He will be with us day in and day out (Matthew 28:20). Still, it is when you spend time with Him in prayer and Word that you become aware of His Presence. And that releases pure confidence to face the future!
So believe in the immense power of God’s presence in our day-today life.
