December 1st, 2007

The righteous shall give thanks … the upright shall dwell in Thy presence.” Psalm 140:13

The spiritual giants of old were those who at some time became acutely conscious of the presence of God. They maintained that consciousness for the rest of their lives.

How, otherwise, can the saints and prophets be explained? How, otherwise, can we account for the amazing power for good they have exercised over countless generations?

Is it not that indeed they have become friends of God? Is it not that they walked in conscious communion with the real Presence and addressed their prayers to God with the artless conviction that they were truly addressing Someone actually there?

Let me say it again, for certainly it is no secret; we do God more honor in believing what He has said about Himself and coming boldly to His throne of grace than by hiding in a self-conscious humility!
