God is identified in scripture as one who “was, and is, and is to come” He is the God of the past, the present and the future. It is good to look backward and remember the testimony of faithfulness of God in our days past. It is wonderful to anticipate the hope of an eternity with the God who holds our future. But it is easy to forget that He is also the God of our present, the God of our right now, the God “who is” in this current moment of our lives. It takes effort to remember that God is always with us, that we are not alone, and like a friend, He is right beside us. Let us try to take some time this week to be fully present in the presence of the God “who is” and enjoy the One who walks with us.
