God’s conscious comforting presence!

God’s conscious comforting presence!

Octavius Winslow, “Beginning the Year with Jesus”

Then Moses said to him, “If Your Presence
does not go with us, do not send us up from
here…..” Exodus 33:15

What a needed and solemn petition!

God’s presence, going with us! Such is the
response of every true God fearing, Christ
loving heart. The believer has learned to
understand the nature of God’s favor, to
know the value of His presence, to test the
wisdom of His guidance, and to experience
the blessedness of the light of His countenance.
And now, the one desire and prayer of his heart
is, “Let Your presence go with me. Let it
accompany me in all the chequered, changeful
history of this year. May Your Presence….
counsel me in difficulty,
soothe me in sickness,
cheer me in solitude,
keep me in danger,
shield me in temptation,
strengthen me in service,
sustain me in suffering, and
deliver me from evil.”

Let, then, the accompanying presence of God be
the intense desire of your heart, and the principal
element of your Christian experience.
