THIS SERIES: CELEBRATE THE PRESENT
For in Him we live and move and have our being.
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.
[ Isaiah 6:3]
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.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.
I will ask the Father,
and He will give you another advocate to help you and be with you for ever –the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.
But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you.
I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you……
On that day you will realise that I am in my Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you.
C.S. Lewis has some words of wisdom on this:
[The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis, Volume III]
Take time at intervals today to focus on the truth of the Lord’s presence. Stop and thank Him that His presence is filling that particular moment, that particular place, and you as an individual.
