In today’s reading, Tozer touches on the faithfulness of God. Our God is “a very present help in time of trouble”. He is always there for us, always faithful. We can trust Him and depend on Him to take care of all of our needs, “according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus”. While the world, people, friends, and even family let us down at times, our God is faithful and always there for us. He will never let us down. Heavenly Father, as we reflect upon Your faithfulness, we know that You are always there for us and will never let us down. We bring our needs to You, trusting You to take care of them in Your perfect timing, and being there for us as our very present Help. We ask all of this in Your Son Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
Tozer touches on the omnipresence of God in today’s reading. While God is indeed everywhere at all times, the omnipresence of God goes beyond God mainly being everywhere. God is also ever present with us. He is our “ever present help in time of trouble”. We are constantly in the presence of God, and He is with us always, everywhere we go. Charles Stanley said it well in the Life Principles Bible when he said that “an awareness of God’s presence energizes us to work”. We should be energized to serve God, knowing that we are forever and constantly in His presence. Heavenly Father, as we reflect upon Your omnipresence, we know that in addition to You being everywhere at all times, that You are also constantly with us, and that we are in Your presence. Energize us to do Your work and Your will for our lives. We ask this in Your Son Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
In today’s reading, Tozer touches on the transcendence of God. Thinking back to chapter 1 when we are to “think highly of God”, we are to acknowledge just how above us God really is. He is in absolute control of the universe and is our sovereign Ruler and Lord. It should humble us to know that through the precious blood of Jesus, we can enter the presence of such an awe inspiring and holy God. Heavenly Father, as we reflect on Your transcendence, we are humbled by the fact that through the precious blood of Your Son Jesus Christ, we as lowly beings can approach Your holy presence. We acknowledge You as our sovereign Lord and Ruler of the universe. We ask all of this in Your Son Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
