Our boss caught us loafing! We always worked hard in his presence, but sometimes we were not as diligent in our work when he wasn’t around - the true confessions of my work experience on a farm! Presence, at times, makes a difference.
Just as my employer’s presence made a difference, God’s constant presence in my life should make a difference. I believe He is always with me, but sometimes I don’t act that way.
King David lived his life believing that God was present everywhere:
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? (Psalm 139:7)
My dad used to tell me that my true character was revealed when no one was watching. As I consider my dad’s wisdom, I am reminded that I am never truly alone. God is always with me.
Are you like me? Do you forget that He is there? Let us live in the full knowledge of God’s presence this week.
