Seeing God In Everything

See God

Romans 1:19-20(NLT) - They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

Last night I taught a class on The Book of Daniel at The School of The Bible, a one year Bible school out of my parent's church; Divine Destiny Worship Centre. One of the major themes of the book is The Sovereignty of God. This is highlighted in the following statement from King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4:35(NKJV); "All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing; He does according to His will in the army of heaven And among the inhabitants of the earth. No one can restrain His hand Or say to Him,"What have You done?"

It's easy for people to underestimate the power of God because of God's grace, mercy and supernatural patience with us here on earth. Yet, we must be reminded that He is involved in everything and nothing takes place without His permission. The level of His involvement, however, varies according to His Will. Sometimes, it's obvious that He's actively involved but other times it's not so obvious. God may not always get the credit when things go well nor does He deserve the blame when they go wrong but He's involved somehow. Hence, we must be reminded that we can see God in everything. We just need to have the right perspective.

God is alive and active in our lives. We may not always acknowledge Him but He's busy doing what's best for us. When we recognize God's activity on a regular basis in our lives and respond accordingly we develop our God-consciousness. As it is developed, our spirits are sharpened and we become increasingly sensitive to the moving and prompting of The Holy Ghost. With this spiritual sensitivity comes the ability to know more about what's going on around us than we can decipher with just our five natural senses.

Proverbs 3:5-6(NKJV) - Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

There is nothing too big, too small, too important, too insignificant, too complicated or too simple for God. He's interested in everything that concerns us. As a result, God expects us to acknowledge Him in all of our ways. In other words, there's nothing we should be doing that should not involve God. No decision must be made without God's input. No move made without first hearing God's Voice or sensing heavenly direction. This is important because God will only direct our paths when we acknowledge Him.

It is now a habit of mine to see God in everything. If something good happens He gets the credit. If something bad happens I put it in His hands. I see Him in saved time when He directs me away from traffic disruptions during rush hour. I see Him in my investment decisions when He shows me where to put my money. I see Him in a good parking spot at the grocery which saves me time and direct exposure to this blistering summer heat. God might be invisible but His role in our lives is not. It's time we acknowledge God's activity in everything we say and do because without Him we would be nothing.

Psalms 139:7-10(NKJV) - Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.

God is everywhere! Whether we notice Him or not, He is there. He knows what you're going through and He knows where you're going to. He knows what you need and where you need to be. He knows the choices you have to make and the path you have to take. Nothing catches Him by surprise. Before you encounter a problem, God has already created the solution. You can't leave Him out of your life because that's impossible. The only thing you can do is try to ignore Him and pretend He's not there but you know the truth; He's always there. God says in Hebrews 13:5 that He will never leave you nor forsake you. He's with you so acknowledge His presence today everywhere you go and in everything you do. Even if you don't involve Him, He's already involved. 🙂
