God in the Present Moment

God in the Present Moment | Where can you find God? | #podcast #christianpodcastPresent Moment Episode 64

God is in the Present Moment is an amazing concept and one I absolutely love. If you have listened to the other podcasters on this network you will see this is a topic many like to speak about. I’ve included some links to the other podcasts for you to enjoy on the topic of God in the present moment.

Recently, I was blessed recently to hear a wonderful Christian speaker, and she shared this very important insight in a unique way that I absolutely loved because it made so much sense to me.

I want to share this with you as well – but first I’d like to thank my sponsor, Media Angels, Inc. Please check out the books A Few Minutes with God and the soon to be released, One More Child. These will be available on Amazon and make great Christmas gifts.

Is God in the present moment?

God was there before all things began. God was not made he always was. He is beyond all that we can comprehend and using out words to describe him falls short.

God is everywhere – he is the light of the world and he knows all.

God will always be – even if the world or universe no longer exists, God will always be.

So, yes. God is in the present moment.

Which brings me to the important insight. And it centers around worry. I think sometimes we just can’t help it. We are concerned, we worry, we think.

We worry about the past. The things that we did. The problems we have. The tormenting ideas that just won’t go away. These are the could of, would of, should of …

We worry about the future. The what if’s – the tormenting ideas of problems that are not even happening yet. These ideas keep us up at night.

But we must remember in

Isaiah 43: 18-19

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

God doesn’t want us to dwell in the past, so many times there is nothing we can do and all the thoughts that we think about makes us sad or angry. We must rely on God in this present moment.

The insight explained the truth that God is not in the past – nor the future – he is in the here and now. God protects us, He is our refuge, He is our rock. In the present, He is here for us–because the present is our reality, the here and the now.

In 2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, He is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.”

We are a new creation in Christ. He has washed us clean. We must rely on and trust in Him. In the now.

If we really think about this friends it is freeing. The worry in the past or the future is giving into the weakness we have of concern that is not something that God can protect us from as they haven’t happened yet and more than likely if we are honest, won’t happen.

When my struggling learners were little and I was homeschooling I worried all the time that they wouldn’t be self-sufficient or they could not go to college or … whatever, fill in the blank. If it was a dire thought – I thought it~ I use to think, “If I can just get my son to 18 things will be so much easier.” I was wishing for the future instead of enjoying the now. I can tell you in hindsight everything worked out so much better than I hoped!

The same thing now with my two youngest in college in different states. They are far away. I have to trust the now – that God has them under His special mantle of protection. And, I pray that things turn out so much better than I can imagine!

Let’s pray –

Dear Lord, I pray for the here and now – where You are in this Present Moment. This is so important and it is difficult for me, I am fallible and I am weak. Please help me, Lord, to rely on You for all things. To carry me when I am weak, to watch out for me, for my loved ones and those in need of Your strong presence. Thank you, Lord, for directing me, for keeping me in your care. Dear Lord help me keep you in my focus and for the all the mercy and blessings you can give me. I pray this in Jesus, Name. Amen.
