In That's Where God Is
, we included a variety of verses pointing to God's presence in our lives.
You will have to get the book to read them all.
But one verse in particular became a kind of over-arching, all encompassing summary statement that knocked us down, picked us up, and opened our eyes to the reality of God's omniscience, power and relentless presence.
It's also in the book, but allow us to share it with you here as well.
Lord, you have seen what is in my heart. You know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know what I'm thinking even though you are far away. You know when I go out to work and when I come back home. You know exactly how I live. Lord, even before I speak a word, you know all about it. You are all around me. You are behind me and in front of me. You hold me in your power. I'm amazed at how well you know me. It's more than I can understand. How can I get away from your Spirit? Where can I go to escape from you? If I go up to the heavens, you are there. If I lie down in the deepest parts of the earth, you are also there. Suppose I were to rise with the sun in the east and then cross over to the west where it sinks into the ocean. Your hand would always be there to guide me. Your right hand would still be holding me close.
May God bless the reading of His word
