“And Elisha prayed, ‘Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.’ Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:17.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; 2 Kings 6-7, 2 Chronicles 20, and 1 Timothy 3.
I am filled with the Holy Spirit.
I don’t have to look out into the fields around me to know that He is present. He is, in fact, omnipresent.
Jesus said that He would send His Holy Spirit to be among us………and He has.
I believe that He is with me as I write this entry. That forces me to want to produce something that pleases Him. I pray that He would prevent me from misrepresenting Him.
I must learn to live in His presence. I must alert myself to His ongoing nearness. It surely puts me on notice to closely examine my plans and my behavior.
“I thank You, Father, for Your presence. You are not a God far off. Guide me this day to Your Ways. Prevent me from misrepresenting You in word and deed. Open the eyes of those apart from You to Your nearness and to Your reality in their midst. I love You, Lord.”
Where is God in your life?
