THE EVER-PRESENCE OF GOD

WORRY, timidity, and dismay betoken fear that one cannot do things which others find easy. Inability to speak in public, hesitancy in accepting new tasks, selfdisparagement, are a few examples of diffidence with which we are familiar and which take much from the joy of living. The usual cause of them is that one feels he is alone and unsupported, that there is no one he can look to for aid.

In this, one is entirely mistaken. Always he has God ! As the Psalmist said (Ps. 46:1), "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." Lacking that assurance which consciousness of the divine presence brings, we may be afraid of the opinion of others, afraid of ourselves, afraid even to live. The knowledge, together with the firm conviction, that God is everywhere present and always available is the needed remedy. It dispels our fear and gives us confidence.
