His Presence

“Lord, send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. Sever any ties but the tie that binds me to your service and to your heart.” — David Livingstone

God is omnipresent. It’s one of His attributes. There’s a great sermon about this if you want to listen to it. 🙂 It’s had me thinking about God being with me all the time. The omniscient attribute ties in here too. It really just blows my mind that God is not defined in any way we can measure – and that includes time. He IS with me when I was a child, and now, and on my deathbed. Amazing! And comforting!

Exodus 33:14-15(two different Bible versions)

“The Lord replied, ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’ Then Moses said to him, ‘If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.'” (NIV)

“God said, ‘My presence will go with you. I’ll see the journey to the end.’ Moses said, ‘If your presence doesn’t take the lead here, call this trip off right now…'” (MSG)
