Where is God when we are sitting down to spend time with Him? How do we know he has received the message?
God is always with us. Believing that He is “absent” stems from the belief that He is not here with us already. God is love and this love is with us always, as it is part of us. In time and the further down the spiritual journey we go, we stop questioning this absence and hold on firmly to the belief that He is there.
The same goes for His Word. When we read His word we need not question whether He is here. Aside from being with us always, He is always present in His Word. When we repeat the Lord’s scriptures, we are praying, we are breathing in his peace, wisdom, and love into ourselves as well as exhaling it out to those around us.
We are one with God. We are one with the Word and it is one with us.
