Practicing His Presence

Thank God!
Pray to Him by name!
Tell everyone you meet what He has done!
Sing Him songs, belt out hymns, translate His wonders into music!
Honor His holy name with Hallelujahs, you who seek God.
Live a happy life!
Keep your eyes open for God, watch for His works;
Be alert for signs of His presence.

I love these verses I read this morning from Psalm 105. They deal with being aware of God’s presence with you in your daily routine. He says in His word that He is always with us. Always. That means that He is with us when we sleep and when we rise. When we cook and when we eat. When we do dishes and drive to the office. When we talk on the phone with customers and when we deal with our employees. When we discipline our children and when we read to them. He’s with us when we watch TV and when we run errands. He’s with us. Always.

The question is… how does His being there change us? Do we acknowledge Him or ignore Him? Do we depend on Him or are do we do it all ourselves? Do we acknowledge that things we see were created by Him or do we give someone else His glory? Are we too busy to even notice? Do we give Him Hallelujahs? Do we “translate His wonders into music?” How do we treat His other children? Even when they have done something wrong or aren’t “like” us? DO WE LIVE A HAPPY LIFE? He is still there. He sees it all.

Will you practice His presence with me today?
