Situational nearness

“In that day people will look to their Maker and turn their eyes to the Holy One of Israel.”  Isaiah 17:7.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Isaiah 15-18 and Hebrews 10.

Things must have been really tough!

When do we turn to God?  A time of crisis is a common one.

I chose today’s verse because I want to always be looking to my Maker for guidance.  Often, I don’t do that.  I get disconnected and distracted.

I try to write this blog daily and often when I’m writing it I will get a Godsight.  I write about it and then go about my life, only to return the next day and start all over.

I long for a consistently Godly life.  Not one that is recognized and lauded by others but one that slides along on a steady path with Him.  The ups and downs are not obvious.  What is obvious is a consistent relationship.

How can this happen?  I must be mindful of Him.  He is in my midst.  I cannot ignore that fact.  I need to act accordingly.

“Lord, I need You every second.  Help me to be mindful of You throughout this day.  Forgive me for wandering away from the reality of Your nearness.  How can I continually do that!  I love You, Father.  Fill me with an awareness of You.”

Are you aware of God’s presence and do you live accordingly?
