Living in God’s Presence

“Pray in the Spirit at all times with all kinds of prayers, asking for everything you need.”  Ephesians 6:18

How do I live in God’s presence?  How do I detect his unseen hand on my shoulder and his inaudible voice in my ear? …How can you and I grow familiar with the voice of God?  Here are a few ideas:

Give God your waking thoughts.  Before you face the day, face the Father.  Before you step out of bed, step into his presence.

Give God your waiting thoughts.  Spend time with him in silence.

Give God your whispering thoughts.  Imagine considering every moment as a potential time of communion with God.

Give God your waning thoughts.  At the end of the day, let your mind settle on him.  Conclude the day as you began it:  talking to God.
