TOPIC: Drawing Near
But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.
2 Thessalonians 3:3
Recommended Reading: Psalm 73:25-28
Meister Eckhart was a medieval German preacher whose principal subject was the presence of God. He said: “I am as sure as I live that nothing is so near to me as God. God is nearer to me than I am to myself; my existence depends on the nearness and the presence of God.”
How do we cultivate a sense of God’s presence? It’s important to begin and end the day with the Lord, making time for silence, Bible reading, and prayer. Between getting up and retiring, we should learn to pray quietly about whatever comes. “Lord, bless this phone call.” “Lord, help me rest on this flight.” “Father, encourage that sad face I just passed.”
If the evil in the world troubles you, imagine how it hurts the Lord to see it too. But we’re not alone. We have a faithful Defender, Friend, and Confidant who walks with us through life. He will guard us from the evil one.
We have the presence of a faithful God enveloping us day and night. In that thought we can rest.
We should grasp God in all things and should train ourselves to keep God always present in our mind. Meister Eckhart
