“I walk in the Lord’s presence as I live here on earth” (Psalms 116:9 NLT).


The psalmist wrote of his constant awareness of the Lord’s presence in His life even as he attended to the everyday things of life here on earth. It is a psalm of praise for the Lord’s attentive ear and caring heart, which the psalmist had experienced. So faithful was the Lord in hearing and answering his prayers, that he felt His heavenly presence with him all the day here on earth. They were in constant contact.
Are you aware of the Lord’s constant presence in your life? Do you carry on an ongoing conversation with God even as you go about your day? We don’t have to wait for heaven to walk in the Lord’s presence. We can walk with the Lord even now, as we live here on earth.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for Your Holy Spirit who always lives in us as Your children. We do not walk alone. For You are always with us. Forgive us for trying to live life according to our own wisdom and strength. We want to always walk in Your presence. In Jesus’ name, amen.
