“In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry. May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm.”
Where do you feel God’s presence most? Where are you least likely to be aware of it?
Lt. Col. Gary Morsch, a doctor with Army Reserves, was called into service in 2005. As a field doctor near Baghdad, he treated both soldiers and prisoners.
Three times within a five-day period, his convoy was hit by bombs. His mission, to go and care for an enemy soldier, was delayed. Many of his friends were thinking, “Why risk my life for an Iraqi fighter?” As for Morsch, he simply felt homesick. It was Sunday, and he would miss chapel service again.
Speeding down the highway, the driver of the squad’s Humvee tried to avoid snipers and enemy fire. There was talk of cars rigged with bombs. Morsch put in his earphones and listened to music, trying to soothe his soul. The first song had these words: “Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place; I can feel His mighty power and His grace.” As he listened, the field doctor began to experience the genuine presence of God in a brand new way.
“God is here,” he thought. “He loves Iraq as he loves our country.” Suddenly Lt. Col. Gary Morsch realized that anywhere could be home, no matter how hostile. God doesn’t avoid battlefields—even there He can always be found.
If you meet God only in church or at home, you’re missing out. He is everywhere, and He wants you to know it. Today, you can feel His presence in those places where you need Him most.
