The reality of God's presence is not dependent on any place, but only dependent upon the determination to set the Lord always before us. Our problems come when we refuse to bank on the reality of His presence. The experience the Psalmist speaks of --"Therefore will we not fear though..." will be ours when once we are based on Reality, not the consciousness of God's presence but the reality of it --Why He has been here all the time!

At critical moments it is necessary to ask guidance, but it ought to be unnecessary to be saying always --"O Lord, direct me here, and there." Of course he will! If our common-sense decisions are not His order, He will press through them and check; then we must be quiet and wait for the direction of His presence.

- Oswald Chambers - My Utmost for His Highest

To read a modern story that illustrates the principle of how God is always at work in our mundane lives, read this post at the Inscribe Writers blog - and be encouraged.
