Tozer: The Universal Presence

Tuesday, November 24, 2015
Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
    —Psalm 139:7-10 (NIV)
    The Universal Presence is a fact. God is here. The whole universe is alive with His life. And He is no strange or foreign God, but the familiar Father of our Lord Jesus Christ whose love has for these thousands of years enfolded the sinful race of men. And always He is trying to get our attention, to reveal Himself to us, to communicate with us. We have within us the ability to know Him if we will but respond to His overtures.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 67 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 139:7-10; 34:18; 63:8; 73:23; 90:16; Isa. 6:3; Jer. 23:23-24; Hab. 2:14; John 1:14; 2 Cor. 4:6; Eph. 1:18; Jas. 4:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are close by.
