"All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things. When you hide your face, they are terrified; when you take away their breath, they die and return to the dust. When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground." -Psalm 104:27-30
The absence of God is terrifying death. His presence is renewing life. And as members of His family, with the fire of the Spirit of Christ burning in our hearts, we must be givers of life as well. In every and any situation, give life. When there is opportunity to exact revenge or show grace, give life. When someone is hurt, give life. When it would be easier to do nothing than to take action for righteousness, give life. Just as Immanuel in us/with us, sometimes it is just your presence in the darkness with someone going through a hard time that can give them life.
