Be Aware of His Presence

10 Jacob left Beersheba and went toward Haran. 11 And he came to a certain place and stayed there that night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place to sleep. 12 And he dreamed, and behold, there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven. And behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! 13 And behold, the Lord stood above it and said, “I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac. The land on which you lie I will give to you and to your offspring. 14 Your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south, and in you and your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15 Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” 16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” 17 And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.” ~ Genesis 28:10-17

The LORD was with Jacob, but Jacob had no idea God was with him that He was. The LORD had to give Jacob a dream so that he understood that he was in the presence of God Almighty. This is how we are. We understand God is within us, but we don’t know His presence the way we should. We can walk into a room and never realize the presence of Almighty God is in that place, just waiting for His people to enter into His presence and see miracles.

It’s in His presence that miracles take place, that salvation and forgiveness are given, and freedom dwells. Yet even seasoned Christians miss the presence of God Almighty. And in doing so, we miss blessings and miracles. Therefore, wake up and take notice. Take notice of the presence of the LORD. Take notice of what He is doing in your life and those around you. Take notice of all His promises and all of His characteristics.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be Aware of His Presence.
