The Honor of Your Presence

Sometimes we feel especially close to God, say, when we hold a newborn baby or walk along the beach or during worship, but other times, God sometimes seems distant. But the truth is, is that God is omnipresent, He is always with us, even when we're slow to realize it.

When God feels distant, we need to realize that the absent party is actually us. God is the rock to which our boat is tied -- the boat might drift, but our Rock doesn't.

Like Brother Lawrence we all need to practice the presence of God. Our prayer needs to echo his: "Make me according to your heart." Our desire to be with God is what brings Him honor. 

Fellowshipping together, spurring each other on to good works, and coming together for worship and to celebrate the Lord's Supper are ways we can come to the wedding feast and honor our King.
