IS GOD PRESENT IN OUR LIVES
God is Good, God is Light, God is Love, God is Spirit.
And that Spirit, Who is God, fills all of Creation, including every Human life, in order to lead it to perfection, to sanctify and render it Holy.
Thereby He offers to Creation, as to us, the possibility of sharing forever in that Goodness, that Light, and that Love.
This is why Trinitarian Theology is so important – because it expresses God as He actually is – as He reveals, manifests and confirms Himself to be in the experience of those who love Him and know they are loved by Him.
GOD IS ALWAYS PRESENT, which means that God sees, God hears, and God knows what is happening. God will handle any situation and will never leave matters the way they are.
God is present everywhere, with everyone, and in every occasion. We are used to seeing God’s hand clearly in our life and all what we face. We saw God every time stepping in our life matters and this is our belief. We do not deal with people a lot but we deal more with God Himself.
GOD IS PRESENT as the Pantocrator. This means that all is under His hand, all is under His control. All people are in God’s hands.
Even the Devil and all the evil powers are controlled by God Himself, Who draws limits for them. Otherwise, if the strong ate the weak, people would have never lived on earth, unless God was interfering strongly as well.
God created the Creation and did not leave it but He manages all its matters.
You are not alone. You are living life and God is with you.
He never leaves you for a single moment, nor for a twinkling of an eye, but you have to Open your Heart for Him & to Obey His Word!
GOD IS PRESENT for He is the Shepherd of us all.
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me.” (Psalm 23)
The Lord also says in the Book of Ezekiel: “I will feed My flock, and I will make them lie down… I will seek what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick… and feed them in judgment” (Ez. 34:15, 16).
We trust in God’s care for us. We trust Him in everything.
GOD IS PRESENT because we mean that He is the Preserver and the Supporter.
“The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in, from this time forth, and even forevermore.” (Psalm 121)
It is a phrase that the Guardian Angel says to every Human while they pray. Or the praying person repeats this to themself to comfort themself, calm down and assure themself.
The Lord said to our father Jacob: “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land” (Gen. 28:15). He also is the one who preserved the prophet Jonah in the fish’s belly and saved the three young men in the burning fiery furnace so that the hair of their head was not singed (Dan. 3). He saved Daniel in the lions’ den so that he chanted his loving song “My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths.” (Dan. 6:22).
God is the one who saved the righteous Joseph from his brothers when they threw him in the well, saved him when he was sold as a slave and served in Photiphar’s house, saved him when he was thrown in jail and multiplied his honor so that he finally said to his brothers: “you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good.” (Gen. 50:20).
We believe that God saves us from the Devil, from sins and from tribulations.
And God’s history in keeping us is a long one that we should not forget.
I wish that every one of us sits with themself and remember how many times God preserved them.
And praise the Lord saying: “Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:” (Psalm 103:1, 2).
God is the One taking care of all. We also remember His tenderness and kindness.
It was out of God’s kindness to Humanity that He gave us the Mind, the Soul and the Will. He gave us Conscience, He gave us the Divine Response and promised us Eternal Life. He gave us the blessing, the authority, the perseverance and gave us what we did not ask for and more than we ask for.
If we cry, God will wipe away every tear from our eyes.
GOD ALSO ALLOWS TRIALS TO COME. WHY?
God allows trials to benefit our Soul Salvation.
We should know the reasons behind every trial coming to us and how to deal with it. When a trial comes upon us we start checking ourselves from inside for each to settle an account with oneself, and reconcile with God if we were far from Him. And in trials, we see that people through their fasts, prayers and taking Holy Communion were reconciling with God so that they ask Him without shame.
Through trials we gain a clearer vision of the things in our lives. We gain Spiritual experience with God. And with it we see that they are given to us for good.
“but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” (1 Cor. 10:13).
The cure for suffering is to care, actively, particularly and personally, just like Lord Jesus Christ does.
His perfect Will stands before us in this and in every other moment offering us a way to fulfill His one commandment.
“Love one another,” He instructs, “as I have loved you.”
So, our choice now is whether to accept the invitation to live inside or outside His Kingdom and make of ourselves either sheep or goats. We know what God desires. The choice is ours to make.
Awake, O My Soul! Awake, O my Soul, and become enlightened. By knowing your heavenly Father in order not to be troubled and sad.
He looks at you and has compassion on you, He helps you every day and wants to bring you to Him forever. Therefore, rejoice and be content, Not being afraid. Rather, trust in His love and constant care for you. What our heavenly Father wants from us is to have a relationship with Him, so that we might be an example of Him on Earth, and to be an effective example in the life of His brethren, so that they might hear His voice within them. Therefore, we must continue to pray continuously, Until we find Grace in the Eyes of God.
