The presence of the Lord in our lives is truly amazing, and the most important reality to keep in mind at all times. When we know that God is with us, we look for Him, and to Him, above all else. As we do, we make room for Him to lead us and His perfect will to be done.

It’s not this or that we need to look for, it’s the Lord, and then all things align under His divine leadership. It’s when we feel as though we are not worthy of His presence that we find He is there to carry us through. It’s when we see our weaknesses that we become aware of the power of His strength. It’s when we think we don’t deserve His glory that we realize His glory shines regardless. It’s when we think we have nothing to give that we find He gives Himself to us, by His grace.

In His presence there is fullness of joy. In His presence no hindrance can remain. No fear, worry, depression or loneliness can stay when we know that God, Himself, is with us. It’s when we trust He is here that we draw near to Him. If God is for us and with us, who can be against us? Oh the glory of His presence, from glory to glory!

Matthew 1:23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated ‘God with us.’ ’’
