I loved reading this from A.W. Tozer this morning about people who practice being in the presence of God:
They know that something inside their hearts sees God. Even when they are compelled to withdraw their conscious attention in order to engage in earthly affairs, there is within them a secret communion always going on. Let their attention but be released for a moment from necessary business and it flies at once to God again. This has been the testimony of many Christians.
Tozer discusses the “inward habit of beholding God.” It doesn’t matter where we are, what’s happening, or what kind of day we’ll have; we can experience sweet communion with Jesus that lifts us from the ordinary and into the supernatural love, joy, and grace always available to us.
