"Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,and his understanding no one can fathom." Isaiah 40:28
Do you believe you have to be in a church or other Holy place in order to hear or to be heard by God? When I was a young girl I think I believed this although I was pretty sure he heard me when I was saying my "now I lay me down to sleep" prayers. Although I enjoy attending church where I can connect with others, the truth God is present everywhere, all the time, even in times when we can't feel him. We have to stop, look, listen and become aware of the Godly things around us.
I have recently been enjoying A.W Tozer's "The Pursuit of God." You know how you can read a book more than once yet each time it speaks to you in different ways? This time around I was completely spellbound by the chapter "The Universal Presence." Tozer writes, "The presence and the manifestation of the presence are not the same. There can be the one without the other. God is here when we are wholly unaware of it. He is manifest only when and as we are aware of His presence. On our part, there must be surrender to the Spirit of God, for His work is to show us the Father and the Son. If we cooperate with Him in loving obedience, God will manifest Himself to us, and that manifestation will be the difference between a nominal Christian life and a life radiant with the light of His face."
I hear God speak to me in my morning quiet time. I also know that he hears me. I love coming into his presence before I begin my busy and sometimes crazy day.
Does God speak to you as you work, play and move about with your life?
I would love to know how you hear and see God.
God is blessing you, Donna
