I Am In His Presence

text size A A A

Where can I flee from Your presence?” asked David concerning the Lord. As I was praying a few days ago after I had awoken from sleep, I thanked the Lord for watching over us during the night. The Holy Spirit whispered to me, that we were in God’s presence. In other words, while I was sleeping I was in God’s presence. WOW!!!

David said, “If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, …. You are there.” David said if he lived in the uttermost part of the sea, God would be there. There is no place in the universe that we can go and be removed from God’s presence. Even in the darkness God sees us. His eyes are as a flame of fire. Darkness and the light are both alike to God.

I knew God was watching over us while we slept. In my mind, God was in heaven and I was in my bed on the earth. To know that I am sleeping in God’s presence is profound to me. This means to me, God is in my space. I am encircled by God’s presence. My sleep will surely be sweeter now. Psalm 4:8 reads: I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

For there is not a word on my tongue but behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. Psalms 139:4 WOW!! Before our words ever leave our tongues God knows them. This verse should be a fantastic influence on us to monitor the words on our tongues, as well as, a great deterrent to subdue our speech. Confessing and repenting to our Lord before those ugly words roll off of our tongues would also be very rewarding for us. O how much trouble and heartache we would save ourselves and others if we would recognize that God knows the words on our tongues.

Verse 2 of Psalm 139 tells us that God knows what I am going to do before I do it. God understands my thought afar off. God not only knows my thought He understands them. Sometimes I may say to someone, “I know where you are coming from” in regard to an experience the person had. God knows why we thought what we thought. He knows the reason for our thoughts. God knows if the thought is a just or a sinful thought. God is acquainted with all of our ways. We should make it our business to become acquainted with His ways as well. We are always in His presence.
