HIM: The Importance of God’s Presence – S3E17

In full transparency, there have been times when situations and circumstances overwhelmed me. I found myself trying to figure out the solution to each problem in and of myself. And therein lies the mistake. Because  1 Peter 5:7 New Living Translation says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” Thus, when I do what 1 Peter 5:7 has instructed — God leads and guides me. In fact, that is why His presence is so important. Hence, this podcast episode, HIM: The Importance of God’s Presence.

Be mindful of God’s presence 

There are many examples in the Holy Bible of the importance of being mindful of God’s presence. For instance, have you heard about how the disciple Peter walked on the water? We all know that is not humanly possible. On the contrary, that was not the case for Peter in the following scriptural text. 

Matthew 14:25-29 New International Version says, 

“25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. 

27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.” 

No doubt, all things are possible when we stay focused on God’s presence. 

Stay Focused: The importance of God’s presence 

Now, from the previous text, we could picture Peter stepping out of the boat, then walking on the water to Jesus. But he allowed circumstances [wind and waves] to distract him. 

Matthew 14:30-33 New International Version says, 

“30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” 31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” 

32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”” 

You see, Peter took his eyes off Jesus and the moment he did, he began to sink. But Jesus lifted him up and they walked on the water back to the boat. The moral of this text is that we should be mindful of God’s presence in every area of our lives. Why? Because He cares–period.

Thus, when we ask Him for help, He will lead and guide us in how to handle anything that comes our way. 

Psalm 37:23-24 Amplified Bible says, 

“23 The steps of a [good and righteous] man are directed and established by the Lord, And He delights in his way [and blesses his path]. 24 When he falls, he will not be hurled down, Because the Lord is the One who holds his hand and sustains him.” 

No doubt, even when we make a mistake if we would turn towards Him, He will lift us out of any trouble without hesitation.
