God is in the Room

How do we know if God is with us? Is faith alone enough when we are in fear or all alone? How can we know if God is in the room? 🤔Let’s discuss.

Having a relationship with God and walking with Him is a unique experience that transcends our daily interactions with others. While our friends, family, and pets communicate with us through the physical realm, God interacts with us in the spiritual realm. The knowledge of God’s omnipresence is both reassuring and uplifting.

When we feel lonely or afraid, we can find solace in the fact that God is always near. In times of loneliness, we can ask God to touch our hearts and fill the gaps with His love and light. When fear grips us, we can trust that God is with us, providing strength and courage in every circumstance.

Even in moments of harm and suffering, we must remember that God is in the room. While we may not fully understand why certain events occur, we can trust that God can bring good out of evil and ensure justice. Seeking God’s guidance and making time for Him allows us to experience His presence more deeply.

READ THE TRANSCRIPT

Having a relationship with God and walking with God, in general, is a very different experience from our interactions with others day to day.  Our friends, family, co-workers, and even pets interact with us through sight, touch, and sounds in the physical realm. God, on the other hand, interacts with us in the spiritual realm.

God is in the room

One of the challenges in this dynamic is the fact that most of us have very little knowledge and understanding of the spiritual realm.  What we know more precisely is our physical world, where we evaluate our surroundings and make decisions based on what we experience from our 5 senses.

What would you say if I told you that while you may not see Him in the same way you see this video message, He is with you right now?  While you may not hear Him as you do this podcast, He is with you in this very moment.  God is in the room with you, right now, in this very moment.  Every single one of you. Even if you are in your car or a train or a bus or walking down the street, He is with you. I don’t care where you are in the world, what time of day it is or what you were doing before you started this message, God is in the room with you right now.

How do I know this?  Because God’s Word tells us that God is omnipotent, meaning all-powerful; omniscient, meaning all-knowing; and omnipresent, meaning present everywhere at all times.   Knowing God is with us at all times can be very reassuring and uplifting. How can God’s omnipresence play a role in our day-to-day lives?

When we are alone

When we are alone and feeling lonely, we can know that God is always near.  While we may not have the companionship of another human being or even a pet, we can know that God is in the room with us.  Knowing this, we can ask God to touch our hearts and help us to know His presence is near.  We can ask God for peace and peace of mind in our circumstances.  We can ask Him to fill the gaps of loneliness with His love and His light.

When we are afraid

When we are afraid, we can rest assured that God is with us.  We can know that whatever the circumstances may be in the moment, we need not feel afraid for God can strengthen us with courage. 

Have a presentation at work and feeling nervous? Remind yourself that God is in the room and ask Him for strength and focus.

Sitting and waiting for your interview?  Remind yourself that God is with you as you wait and will be with you in the room for your entire interview.  Ask God for His will to be done with the interview and the outcome.  Ask God to give you the words to speak and to help you remember what you have prepared for.  Know that if you have asked for God’s will to be done, then it shall be done.  If God’s will is for you to get the job, then it shall be done.  If God’s will is for you not to get the job, for whatever reason, then it shall be done.

When we are in harm’s way

When we are in harm’s way, physically, emotionally, or otherwise it can be difficult to wrap our head around the fact that God is in the room.  It can become very easy for us to assume that in walking with God that there will never be situations where some form of harm or suffering may enter our lives.

While circumstances may occur in your life where someone brings harm into your midst, know that God is still in the room with you and is able to make good out of any acts of evil that may enter your life.  If acts from evil deeds do eventually cause pain and suffering, it can be difficult to understand why God would allow such a thing if we asked Him for protection in the first place.  Consider these three important points.

#1 There are forces of good and forces of evil in our midst. 

#2 God has made clear that all 8 billion of us on the earth have 100% free will. 

#3 Just as we can walk in the world with the influence and direction of the light of God in us, we can also be influenced by forces of evil and darkness. 

We must do our very best to walk intentionally toward God’s light in order to shield us as much as possible from the evil forces that surround us and occupy the hearts of others.  That being said, remember that God does intervene in some cases to protect us from evil or to minimize the impact of evil deeds planned against us – unbeknownst to us. This is a much, much larger topic for a future message.

We may experience pain and suffering even as God is in the room but know that God can make good out of the evil deeds done to you.  Know that God can see to it that there is justice.   Trust God and seek out God in all that you do. If suffering does come upon you, ask Him to lead and guide your circumstances according to His perfect plan and outcome.

When we make time for Him

Making time for God is one of the most important things you can do with your relationship with God and is one of the most powerful ways you can experience evidence of His presence in the room.

God delights in our attempts and actions to make time for a relationship with Him.  This is not hard to understand when you realize how a spouse, family member, or friend appreciates time spent with you.

From my own experience, quiet time with God is one of the most treasured times of day for me.  I choose to have my quiet time with God first thing in the morning as I start my day, shortly after I awake.  I do this in hopes of having a mind as free as possible of clutter and racing thoughts (although racing thoughts do still come from time to time).

In the quiet, and especially in darkness in candlelight, I truly enjoy a space of time of about 25 minutes to do my very best to connect with Him, sometimes speaking softly, sometimes just being still in silence.  At this moment, I know He is in the room just as He will be in other rooms throughout the day, but this moment is different from the others.

When I sit and close my eyes and pray, speaking to God, I often ask for His presence to be made known. When I do, I assure you there is an experience that suggests to me that He hears me and responds.  I cannot explain it, nor do I understand it fully, but there is a difference between the sensations before and after asking God to reveal Hiimself to me.  There is a lack of sensation before, then a new sensation immediately following my request.  It is not a sensation of the 5 senses, it is a different sensation – deep within.   I encourage you to make time out of your day, at least 20 minutes to have intentional quiet time with God.   I will share more about this experience in a future message.

As I mentioned in other messages, I think one of the reasons I may be permitted to experience this sensation I feel after asking Him to reveal Himself to me is so that I could share the experience with you! I think God desires all of us to experience Him in all the ways He has to offer.

Wrap Up

Make no mistake, God is in the room.  He is in the room with you right now.  We can truly have a transformative life if we walk through our day, knowing this truth.  Knowing that wherever we go, God is with us.  He is with us when we are alone or in a group.  He is with us in times of celebration and sadness.  God is always with you and will never leave you or forsake you.  Rest assured that He is with you every moment from now until your very last breath.
