God has promised us his presence, but it is so easy to be so busy with doing our lives that we can miss out on the joy of experiencing his presence and the peace, hope, love and all that comes with it! When we experience the presence of God we come away changed, what we knew as “head-knowledge”, now, becomes “heart-knowledge”. It is not that we know of the truth but we know the Truth, personally, completely and in that we find our own freedom.
So often, God reveals himself to us when we step out in obedience to Him, when we are in a position where without Him we are stuck. He does not fail us, He always turns up to show us a bit more of who he is.
You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.
