When do you feel the closest to Almighty God?
Sometimes when you stand quietly outside, hearing all of the sounds of nature mingled with fantastic natural sights, there is this feeling that God is near…that we can hear His voice…or reach out and touch Him.
Listening to or reading pure spiritual truth. Listening to God's Prophets and Apostles. Yes, he has Prophets and Apostles today. Going to places that have been blessed and dedicated by God like places he has visited. I also feel God's presence in nature like you said.
You are absolutely right. There is nothing more comforting than listening to others who know the Lord. That is when you can learn more and come even closer to God.
Therein lies the difference. The mystics do not say there is God and you. There is only God, the Divine power. Not two.
Yes, the Holy spirit dwells within us. He just gets stronger in certain situations.
Whenever I am alone and when I need to speak something out that I cannot speak to anyone else, I feel very close to God as I speak to myself then. To be very honest, I always feel that there is someone who always takes care of me and who else it will be except God. Whenever I am depressed or frustrated, I find a firefly visiting me and it gives so much hope to look at life with all the positive energy I have. It seems that God resides withing me, in general within everyone, and He asserts his presence when we need him.
At the time of prostration i feel very close to almighty. The act of prostration teaches that one should surrender himself completely to the will and wish of God. The whole life should be spend in accordance with His teachings and commands. Those moments will surely bring us closer to our Creator which have been spent in His obedience.
m abdullah javed, surrendering is definitely when God can teach us the most and draw us closer and closer to Him. It is when we yield to Him that He acts so quickly in our lives.
I studied the idea from the teachings of the eastern philosophers. Their conclusion is, there is no duality. There is only God. God is the Spirit inside of the body. It may be difficult for some people to accept due to certain teachings and the word blasphemy. But even in Christianity there is a scripture that says, the kingdom of God is within you, Luke 17:21. Also, 1 Corinthians 3:16 says, Know ye not that ye are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? Somehow Christians seem to disregard those scriptures.
I am a Christian, and I certainly do not disregard either of those scriptures. While God is in us, if we pay no attention to that fact and are distracted by wordily things we do not feel His presence. I am addressing what we do to feel His presence.
In afflictions, sufferings, problems, and turbulence....
When all self-concern is missing. When there is nothing but concern for others, love and even forgiveness. Within that forgiveness is perfect responsibility for their acts against me. With that responsibility, I no longer can be victim to anything, but feel only love for all. Miracles happen. The gates of Heaven open up.
I have felt this. I continue to hunger for it.
In the bathtub, perhaps...
When everything is quiet.
And in the presence of beauty.
I feel closest to God as I listen to praise & worship music and go into prayer. It seems that God chooses just the right song for every moment.
I feel connected to our Lord the moment I begin to pray. I feel as if I'm right at His feet or in His arms, and I absolutely feel His presence & hear His voice.
Honestly, I know He's always with me, so I try my best to make every moment a moment with Him, acknowledging His presence, love & grace.
God bless you.
We have so much in common in this area. There is not one word that you have said that I, too, have not experienced and loved every second. ...Wonderful answer
Isn't it beautiful to feel Him like that ? :-) I pray everyone in the world would seek to know Him the same way. God bless you, Doris Dancy.
