The past couple of days I have been reading this passage from the book of Psalm. This prayer from David’s heart to God in this close, deep and personal encounter is beautiful. It clearly expresses how close God wants to be to us and how close He desires for us to be with Him.
I find it amazing how God knows every single thing about us. There is nothing we can hide from Him. He knows all. Even if you don’t tell Him, He still knows it.
Sometimes it’s hard when we go talk to someone about issues we are having and troubles that we are facing. Many people can try to comfort us and can understand some of the issues, but only God truly knows exactly how we are feeling and what we are going through. When no one else can clearly understand the exact, intimate details of our lives, He does. To me, that is a comforting thought.
When you go to Him in prayer and are just hurting and don’t know what to pray, He knows that hurt and will provide the comfort you need. Sometimes we don’t even need words. We just need to bask in His presence and let ourselves be filled with His presence.
I pray today and from this day forward that you will feel the presence of God in your life and working through you and in you to give you what you need. There is no place you can go to where God will not be. He is always with you, hearing every prayer and He is faithful and true. Kind of sounds like an old favorite Hymn, doesn’t it? Reach out to Jesus, He’s reaching out to you.
I hope and pray that each day, you will feel this closeness in your relationship with God. He knows you from the inside out. He will understand when others cannot. He will hear the cries of your heart when you don’t have the words to express them.
Do you feel that closeness and comfort today? I hope so. He’s always there.
