“Without any doubt the Lord is in this place, and I did not realize it.” Genesis 28:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version
You may be surprised at the number of times Jehovah was present and you were not even aware of it.
There were time when I was a baby Christian I used to love being alone in nature whether it be by a gentle stream, on the beach at the ocean, walking through the forest or in the desert. At these times when I would sit and drink in plentiful amounts of the stunning beauty a feeling of peace and love would envelope me. I naively believe it was because of being in nature. Upon reflecting back on it the realization came that that blessing was because God was there with me.
There were times when an overwhelming nagging feeling told me to take a different route to work or school. It felt as if an invisible force was guiding the route taken. Then upon arriving or later in the day there would be news of a catastrophe that occurred on that route. A sense that if I could have taken that route I would have been one of the casualties.
There were times of great sadness and or depression when a feeling of calm, peace and love would envelope me like a warm comforting blanket on a cold day. Upon reflection I realize the Holy Spirit was there supporting, encouraging, strengthening and loving me.
Today, take time to reflect back on your life and see how many times Jehovah was there with you and you did not even know it. It brings a new sense of awe, respect, love and admiration to our Beloved and draws us ever closer unto Him.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with Your Divine presence in my life. It is the greatest honour of all and has guided me on the proper walk in every aspect of my life. I exalt You in the name of He who walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
