The Presence of God
Many Christians find it very difficult to focus their thoughts God and His various attributes. To help you in this, try thinking about the effects of His attributes on your life. For example, what affect does the omnipresence of God have on you? Believing that God is always with you cannot fail to have a powerful impact on your daily life. John Owen wrote that one thought of the actual presence of the holy God and His all-seeing eye will do more to restrain our lusts than any other consideration whatever. We should live each day in the conviction that God is looking on us, deeply concerned in all our ways, and that He cares about everything that happens to us. Especially when we are facing great difficulties in life, and all help seems far away, the first thing we should do is fix our hearts on the presence of God.
