Open Your Eyes - Habits of the Heart

Open Your Eyes

I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me.

Psalm 139:7-10

How easy is it for God to get your attention throughout the day? In Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer, C. S. Lewis wrote, “We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade, the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito.”a

Look for his presence all around you today in ways you hadn’t thought about before (through the comfort of another person, a beautiful sunset, a song on the radio, or a Scripture that comes to mind).
