has promised you His constant presence (Hebrews 13:5), but are you conscious of
His presence every day? When you are conscious of His
presence every day, you will experience a peace that gives you rest, joy
inexpressible in your spirit and a power that nothing in this world can offer.
fact, you will begin to be peaceful and powerful like Jesus. You will speak and
behave like Him. This is because you cannot be in God's presence without His beauty,
love, peace, power and glory rubbing off on you.
how do you practice being conscious of God's presence?
by seeing God with you in whatever you do and wherever you are. For example, at
your board meeting, while deliberating on issues, see the Lord there in
the boardroom with you, guiding you in your thinking. And you can be sure that
His presence will bring clarity of thought and wisdom to you. You will find yourself
flowing with great and sound ideas.
you are going for an interview, see the Lord there in the interview room with
you, putting answers in your mouth. Your nervousness will melt away as you see His
favor on you bringing on smiles and approving nods from the interviewers.
you are going for surgery. Well, see the Lord in the operating theatre with
you, guiding the hands of the surgeons. Your worries will dissipate because nothing
can go wrong in the Lord's presence.
you are in the middle of an argument, see the Lord standing within earshot.
Your words will change and your body language will become more reconciliatory as
you see Him right there with you extending His grace to you. There will be a restraint
which is not borne of willpower, but which comes supernaturally when you
know that the One who loves you and watches over you is with you.
when you become conscious of God's presence in your life, worries and fears
will have no foothold in your mind. You will see Him maximizing your joy
and fun, and prospering you in what you say and do!
