God’s Presence

Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? (Psalm 139:7 ESV) There is a presence of God in our lives that all should always remember. He is always with us, now, and forevermore. His Spirit indwells within us and we cannot be separated from His great Love. (Romans 8:37-39) His hand leads us and His Word guides us through life. As He was with the Moses as He led the Jews from captivity and horrible bondage so He is with us as we sojourn in this earth and journey on the path that He has chosen for us. The psalmist makes a statement that has raised the hairs of theologians and skeptics for centuries: If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!… This one statement has a positive effect on the spiritual man.  God’s presence is even in Sheol? Yes, He is Almighty and Ever-present on this earth and in this earth, his Throne is in the north and he dwells amongst all by His Spirit. There is no turning from Him or separation even though at times He may seem distant. When Jesus was on the Cross He felt the separation from the Father when Sin weighed in on the heart of Jesus. The Father pulled back and that pain of loneliness and distance form the Father made it possible for us to never to be away from Him. Even when our faith fails His will not deny His faith. (2 Timothy 2:15) Having these promises of His presence gives an ultimate sense of security and hope as life appears in the different aspects of the heart. His Word will lead you down the paths of righteousness and His Holiness will be a signpost of just how to react when temptation comes and knocks at the door of your heart. He will always be there and will never forsake His children. (Hebrews 13:5) He left a road map to live by through His Word and by His Spirit. We are to walk and live in the Spirit everyday. (Galatians 5:16; 25) He spoke through Micah about how to walk through this life in His presence…Humbly! (Micah 6:8) The Lord has always desired to consistently maintain a depth of presence with His creation.  From the Garden of Eden till now He continues to present Himself as a good Father… Forgiving and healing with compassion, mercy and truth. To run from Him is not possible and to deny Him will not remove Him from being God and filling this earth with His glory. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess His Lordship and Majesty one day. (Philippians 2:10) The question asked by the psalmist has not an answer that will give way to a place where God will not be found. His Love and His Word are forever present in the creation of the heavens and the earth. What has broke the relationship but did not send His presence away was Sin but Jesus broke that wall down by His death and resurrection. We now have the Abba Father and the reconciliation that is indeed necessary for a fulfilled life with Him. Where can one go and not find God? That place does not exist…. Dennis Remember prayer moves the Hand of God.
