Lord, thank You for Your never-ending presence.
Last weekend I traveled to Manitoba. This weekend I’m in Edmonton, Alberta. Thankfully my cell phone enables me to communicate with my loved ones almost everywhere I go. This proved handy on the way home from a recent family vacation.
Driving in three vehicles meant the possibility of being separated, so we made plans to meet in a specific city for dinner should that happen. Our son arrived first so he chose a restaurant and phoned us with directions. We, in turn, called our daughter.
My 80-year-old mom observed the goings-on from the backseat and laughed. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” she said. “I’m amazed at how these new-fangled phones keep everyone in touch so easily.”
I agreed. Nearly everywhere I go, whether in North America or overseas, my family and I can stay connected. Fantastic!
Know what’s far more fantastic than that? Wherever believers go on earth, we’re connected to God. “If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast,” says Psalm 139:7-10.
Let’s let this knowledge encourage us today. Because He lives in us, we have constant access to His presence and power. Even when we’re beyond cell coverage. Amazing!
Take Action: This very moment, thank God for His never-ending presence in your life.
