Be Conscious Of God's Presence

By Anita Oyakhilome

Be sure of this ... that I am with you always, even to the end of the world (Matthew 28:20 TLB).

When you're conscious of God's divine presence with you, your life will be an unending stream of the miraculous. Dr. Daisy Osborn used do the same. Practicing the presence of God means living your life with the consciousness that God lives in you, and alone in this world; there's nobody to help me" should be completely banished from your life. Rather, you say, "The Lord is with me always".

When Jesus said, "... lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world" (Matthew 28:20), he wasn't kidding. It makes no difference whether or not you "feel" he's close; He is right there with you and in you! Don't allow your mind to think thoughts of loneliness and weakness; look in the mirror and tell yourself, "God is with me, and he lives in me".

You must begin to think, talk, and function as though God is with you, because he is! Talk to him often. Relate with him like a real person who can hear and appreciate your concerns. When you're conscious of his presence this way, you wouldn't recognize the absence of others or the challenges and adversaries you face. It's something you must practice consciously, especially when you're alone.

If you can be bold in the presence of God when you're alone, you'll win when you come out of your closet. That will be the end of all your struggles. Fear, worry, anxiety, doubt and stress will be gone from your life for good. He'll lead, guide, protect and strengthen you. As he said to Joshua, he says to you today, "yes, be bold and strong! Banish fear and doubt! For remember, the Lord your God is with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9 TLB).
