The gift of aware presence shines forth from the soul of every human being in the beginning with God!
“How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. O continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your salvation to the upright of heart!” (Psalms 36:7-10).
The upright of heart are those who, like Abraham, are justified by faith—those who trusting in and relying on Christ, truly see His day. Each one of us sees (by virtue of) this light, but few recognize Him as Lord—few recognize in Him their real origin and destiny.
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on his name: Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:10-13).
“Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name; the upright shall live in your presence” (Psalms 140:13).
