Don't Miss Him

The most significant move of God is move He made for each of us. 

Jacob woke up from his sleep. He said, “GOD is in this place, truly. And I didn’t even know it!” He was terrified. He whispered in awe, “Incredible. Wonderful. Holy. This is God’s House. This is the Gate of Heaven.” Genesis 28:16-17 MSG

The revelation that God is real and that He’s with us, is one of life’s most important discoveries. 

But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Romans 1:19 MSG

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Romans 1:20 NLT

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell. - C.S. Lewis

Whenever they turn to face God as Moses did, God removes the veil and there they are face-to-face! They suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiseled stone. 2 Corinthians 3:16 MSG

Obedience is a pathway to the presence, power, and purposes of God.

Come close to God, and God will come close to you. James 4:8 NLT

What science can’t discover or communicate is how much you are known and loved by God.

O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD. You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand! I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. Psalm 139:1-10 NLT

If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,” even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you. For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139:11-16 ESV

In God’s presence we are KNOWN - In God’s presence we are HELD - In God’s presence we are FREED - In God’s presence we are HEALED - In God’s presence we are CHALLENGED - In God’s presence we are CHANGED. - In God’s presence we are MOVED

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 ESV

That the creator of everything made a space for me to meet with Him may be the most amazing reality in the entire universe!
