He is There

"Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there."

Proverbs 139: 7-8

We are reassured over and over of the Lord's presence throughout God's word. Not just for a fleeting moment, or when we open our heart in prayer. When we wake, He is there. When we are typing away at the keyboard, He is there. When we have hit rock bottom, He is there.

Why do I forget that fact? The Lord of lords is RIGHT THERE, waiting for me to turn over every need to Him. He wants us to fall on Him, not just for a few things here and there, but to turn everything over to Him.

His word is so beautiful. I never tire of reading passages. I just feel a release of pressure, tension, and fear rise out of me when I sit down to read it. There are promises of protection and assurance laced throughout. Where else is that available?

When I need it most, He is there. Thank you Lord for your presence.
