Lenten Devotional for February 15

In God’s Presence

IamwebRead:

Psalm 16

You teach me the way of life.
In your presence is total celebration.
Beautiful things are always in your right hand.
—Psalm 16:11

Reflect:

God is active in the world and in our lives in many ways. We may feel the mystery of God as we view storm clouds brewing over an azure ocean. We may experience the love of God when we are comforted by a friend. We may be filled with the compassion of God as we attend a conference on the plight of the homeless. We may be blessed by the peace of God during prayer or troubled by the challenges of God as we study the Bible. God comes to us in our conscious and unconscious experiences, for God is in all of life.
–Anne Broyles*

Pray:

God, I walk on holy ground every day, but often fail to acknowledge it. Help me to seek out “burning bush” moments with you. Let me recognize You in those moments and act boldly in Your name. Amen.

Respond:

When or where do you feel the presence of God?
