Thou God seest me…
Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God. We also read that Cain went out from the presence of the Lord. To Moses He said My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. The psalmist tells us, God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. The Father shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever. Oh yes: My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest..
God is God and being God He knows no limits, for He is Infinite. God is God and being God there is not limit to His presence.. He is omnipresent in time and eternity – in space and throughout creation. Yet His omnipresence takes on a new and unsurpassed dimensions in the Christian, for He takes up permanent residence within the being of the believer in Christ.
God is God and being God He chooses to make us the Temple of His Presence. The indwelling presence of God within the Christian is no myth or folk-legend. This is no speculative nicety.. no theoretical yen – no considered spiritual opinion. The indwelling Christ is a reality.. a scriptural fact proclaimed by God’s Word. The presence of God takes up eternal residence in the spirit of a believer at rebirth.. baptised into the body of Christ – one with Him and one in Him and He in us.
But many choose to confine His presence to the realm of conscious feelings.. or seek after a plethora of spiritual experiences to ‘prove’ God speaks the truth. Some even erroneously bemoan that God has withdrawn His presence from them.. often seeking out some personal sin or deficiency that caused God’s withdrawal – refusing to believe His Word, unless God proves Himself to their satisfaction.
But we live by factual faith in God’s Word and not by sensual sight. We live by factual faith in God’s Word and not by fluffy feelings. Oh yes Adam hid from the Lord and Cain went out from the presence of His God.. and we too can grieve the Holy Spirit in the way we live our Christian life. We can even quench the work of the Spirit in His sanctification process within.. but don’t kid yourself – even you can never negate the living Word of truth!
God is God and being God.. is omnipresent in all the created and uncreated realm. God is God and being God.. His truth is fact and His word is truth. God is God and being God.. His presence will go with you forever.. and He will give you rest. Just believe it…. by faith.
God is with us and in us and before us and behind us every moment of our lives. Human feelings are not the plumb-line for His divine omnipresence in your life. His Word is the pure principal and standard that God Himself has ordered. Of course we are all human and we all love to have concrete reassurances, but our comfort and reassurance must remain in His Word of truth.
He said …I am with you always.. even unto the end of the age, for nothing can separate us from God’s divine omnipresence. NOW.. just believe it!
