Plenty of good instruction in today’s verse.
Being near to God is crucial. God is already in the midst of the believer. “Being near” requires my recognition of His presence.
I was part of a group interviewing Tim Tebow before a baseball game in Portland. Every word Tim said was recorded and we all listened intently.
I must be tuned into the fact that the Holy Spirit is omnipresent. He’s everywhere including the room in which I am writing this entry! What does He think about what I am writing? What would He want me to say? I can ask. I can let Him guide me. Surely this is the wonder of having God in my midst.
God doesn’t leave me. I ignore Him. He’s where He has always been; nearby.
“Father, Your Words are the only ones that matter. I am listening for them. Open my heart to take them in. I want to live right. I want to please You. I thank You for always being nearby. Guide me to where You want me to go. I surrender now to You.”
He’s right with you. Live accordingly.
