awareness

  One of the reasons we don’t live in constant awareness of God’s presence is that we are too aware of our unworthiness of Him.

While there is a healthy way to realize this it must be out of awe or the fear of the Lord and not from guilt.

When I feel His presence I feel instantly guilty for how long it’s been since I’ve genuinely spent time with Him.

This guilt is subtly keeping us from spending time with our Creator.

Whatever that guilt looks like for each of us we don’t like feeling it so we avoid the trigger – the awareness of His presence.

On the surface, this guilt can look like what the world labels humility,

but this is not God’s definition of humility. In the world humility is thinking low of yourself, the lower you go the better.

The Lord’s definition is not having your own opinion of yourself, but believing what God says about you.



He says

What does the Lord say about us?

He says that through faith in our Lord Jesus, His righteousness is imputed to our account. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says this – 

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. 

That feeling of guilt isn’t humility but pride because it wars against what the Lord says about you. The blood of Jesus doesn’t cry out guilty, it cries out righteous!

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. -Hebrews 4:15-16

 

We aren’t worthy because of anything we did; we never will be. We can’t reach that, but we trust in Jesus and thankfully the Father sees us through Jesus. We are worthy through Him.

 

Thank you, Lord!!
