Attributes: Presence


He is near; He is touchable. No matter what our struggles and joys are, He is there. He is able to keep us from falling; He will present us faultless (Jude 24).
We are refreshed at/in His presence (Acts 13:19b). He created nature & fellowship with others as times of refreshing. When did you last spend time in His presence? His presence is everywhere (Psa. 139:7). Every moment in our lives is in His presence. Are we spending our times in His presence failing or growing? We are to dwell in His presence with praise & trembling (Psalm 140:13; 95:1-3: 100:1-2; 114:7-8; Ezekel 38:20).
Rejoice for He is in the presence of God, for us! When He comes, our presence with Him will be cause for celebration. If we do not know Him or if we refuse Him, His presence will bring punishment...everlasting destruction from His presence & glory (Hebrews 9:24; 1 Thessalonians 2:19; 2 Thessalonians 1:3-9).
Acknowledge His presence & dwell refreshed today.
