You are Invited

But as for me, it is good to be near God… Psalm 73:28

Today you are invited to consider how near you are to God.  Does He feel close to you or far away?  What is happening in your life that makes you feel this?  When did you last ask God to make His presence felt?  Ask Him now.  Listen for His voice.  Spend time sitting in a quiet place in stillness and listen.  If you become aware of Him, thank Him and let Him minister to you in whatever way He wants.  If you still cannot feel His presence, who can you ask to pray with you about this?  Find a trusted Christian friend or someone from your church who will pray.  Do not hurry such prayers.  Ask God what He wants to teach you through this sense of Him being far away.  And remember He has promised that He will never leave you nor forsake you.  He is here with you, whether you can feel Him or not.

May God bless you today with an awareness of His presence.
