Look Again. Can You See Me Now? - Habits of the Heart

Look Again. Can You See Me Now?

If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.

Jeremiah 29:13

The Bible tells many stories of people who were in the very presence of God but were completely unaware of it. Jacob was camping overnight, for instance, when he realized he had missed God trying to communicate with him and exclaimed, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!” (Genesis 28:16). Jesus’ own disciples didn’t recognize they were walking with him on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-16).

What causes you to miss God’s presence and activity in your day? Practicing God’s presence is about awakening a constant attentiveness to God always being with you, working on your behalf. As you develop this awareness, worry, discouragement, and fear will lose their power over you.

This book intentionally begins with “Practicing God’s Presence” because this sets the stage for the rest of the year. As you work through each devotion, remember God is with you in every moment. Don’t miss what he is doing right in front of you!
