The With-God Life (Wednesday 14th May)

Morning Encounter:


I will always look to you, as you stand beside me and protect me from fear. With all my heart, I will celebrate, and I can safely rest. I am your chosen one. You won’t leave me in the grave or let my body decay. You have shown me the path to life, and you make me glad by being near to me. Sitting at your right side, I will always be joyful. (Psalm 16.8 – 11)


Our life with God depends on us being centred on God and by keeping our mind focused on him. The suggestion in this Psalm is that the writer uses his imagination to draw closer to God and to make his presence seem more real and more tangible.


As an exercise today, imagine that Jesus is right with you now, where you are. Use your imagination to picture Jesus in the space where you are as you begin to talk to him. Does his presence seem closer now?

Midday Meditation:

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!“ Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided— “Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!

Evening Reflection:

God, we bless you for guiding us through another day. We confess that we looked to our own strength before we looked to you at times. Help us, Father, to learn to lean into your good and perfect will. We love you and we trust you. Guard us now as we sleep. Amen.
