Earlier this week, I mentioned that God promises to love our children for thousands of generations. It was a strong reminder of how much God wants to know and love us, as we are His children.
I then came across this passage by CS Lewis. He writes, regarding Exodus 20:18-21:
“We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito. And the incognito is not always hard to penetrate. The real labor is to remember, to attend. In fact, to come awake. Still more, to remain awake.”
— from Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer
I need daily reminders that the presence of God is all around me, just as the Kingdom of God, according to Jesus, is “at hand.” I have found that when I am observant, I can easily bust through into the presence of the Almighty, and it is there that I find everything that satisfies.
