An Easy and Rewarding Way to Notice God’s Presence Every Day

Have you noticed that we don’t often think about God unless we have a difficult circumstance to bring before Him? 

It’s not intentional for most of us. It’s just that in our loud and fast-paced life, God’s quiet presence goes largely unnoticed until we become desperate.

Yet, no matter what our circumstances, He has already provided an endless amount of everyday blessings for us to enjoy. When we miss them, we miss Him.

And when we miss God, we miss a deep richness that permeates each and every moment of our lives.

So what if we became intentional about including our Lord in each of our days, the good as well as the bad ones?

To note His presence?

To note His majesty and glory?

To note His sovereignty and presence?

To note His continual grace and mercy?

How would that change our attitude?

How would that affect our witness?

Become More Aware of God’s Presence

Making note of God’s presence is quite easy. He’s given us much we overlook or take for granted. Taking notice of them reminds us of Him. 

In other words, becoming more aware of God’s presence in our days is as simple as remembering what He’s given us.

So here are some everyday gifts He blesses us each one of us with:

The sun to wake us to a new day.

The moon and stars to soften the darkness.

Majestic peaks, grand valleys and expansive seas to spotlight His majesty and sovereignty.

Trees to shade us from the intense heat of the day.

Grass to give us a soft place to land.

Rocks to remind us of the beauty in jagged edges.

Illness to prepare us for the Land without tears.

New life to reflect the great promise we have in His Son.

Family to point us to grace.

Friends to comfort us and redirect us to the truth.

Children to delight and challenge us.

Difficult relationships to direct us to forgiveness.

Critters to demonstrate His creativity.

Storms to humble our hearts.

Large palette of colors to brighten the dreary and mundane.

The Son, Jesus Christ, to bring us life.

The Holy Spirit to strengthen and guide us.

The Father to provide for us.

The Holy Bible to speak to us.

The beauty of who God is and what He’s done for us should propel us to live each of our days basking in His presence, not ignoring it.
