Recognizing God

Are we open to see God in our everyday lives through scriptures and others?

Genesis 28:16

Jacob recognized God’s presence at a location. Although God is present everywhere we may not always see God. But how special it must be when we do have that moment.

Jacob had a dream that he could identify as coming from God. But because it was a dream he could have dismissed it as just a dream. Even in the ordinary God can appear and we may miss it if we’re not looking out for God.

God may speak to us through people we dislike but are we open to listening to them? God may be telling us something through scripture but are we talking the time to read the Bible and meditate on it?

Let us think about how God may be speaking to us today. Can we see God in our day and have a moment of appreciating his presence? Let’s make the time to see with our hearts and not just with our eyes?
