The Pool of God's Presence

The devo for today speaks of how great and overwhelming God is and how man mistakenly tends "to make himself the measure of all things. But man's measure is too tiny to comprehend (God's) majestic vastness." (155)
This makes me think of how silly it would be to fill a large swimming pool with water, one tiny teaspoon at a time! It would take forever and be a seemingly impossible task! Yet, that is similar to how small we are in comparison to God's Greatness.
Yet, a God so Great longs for us to "draw near" to Him! And as we "draw near" He promises to respond by drawing near to us! Incredible! (James 4:8)
I think it's time to dive into the pool of His great Presence; to let His overwhelming "Power and Glory" wash over and around us until we are...
Overwhelmed in Worship...dmc


  1. I love the swimming pool analogy! That really puts a good human perspective on how big God really is for me. Can I share this on Facebook?

    When I read the devo today, this song popped in my head. Measure of a Man by 4Him is a favorite of mine!


    "That is why most people do not see Me at all, even though they live and move and have their being in Me."(155) We let the things of this world get in the way of seeing His Presence.

    Enjoying His presence today!

  2. Thanks, Melissa. You can share the pool analogy. Have a great day "swimming with Jesus!"
