Feeling God’s Presence

And he said, “My presence will go with you,
and I will give you rest.”
Exodus 33:14

A deeply devoted Christ-follower friend recently said, “It’s been awhile since I’ve felt God’s presence.”

I thought and replied, “Jesus said the Holy Spirit will comfort us, lead us into all truth, and show us things to come. Are you getting comfort and guidance from God’s Word and his Spirit?”


“Well, then maybe you don’t need to feel God’s presence.”

One name for Jesus is Emmanuel, which means “God with us”.

This means God is everywhere. Since he’s everywhere, we may not be able to feel him, any more than a fish feels the water. It’s enough to know God is everywhere and he’s leading us.
