I’ve never been one to keep things the same. In fact, doing my weekday morning blogs to encourage believers is a real stretch for me. Routine has it’s place in the shower, but in the presence of God, the only thing routine is that we actually go in. How often we go and how we enter is never the same.
I know David said that we are to enter into His presence with thanksgiving and His courts with praise, but isn’t that what we do when we enter into any Kings presence? Don’t we always come with utmost reverence, respect and bearing gifts?
Here’s a suggestion; mix things up a little bit. There are times all I do is play and sing worship songs, allowing the presence of God to permeate my space and course through His temple. At other times, I read verse after verse, chapter after chapter, allowing His Word to breathe fresh into me.
At times He speaks softly with a thought, a truth or an answer to a question I posed yesterday. At times it’s while listening to someone teach or a short video I feel impressed to pull up and watch. Whatever I feed into my spirit, the hunger for truth is satisfied and I’m amazed once again at His deep, abiding love.
So while there is so much forced change in the world today, in how we shop, greet one another and gather together, remember to change the way you approach Father God. He’s not a far away God who shakes a disapproving finger at you when you step on a crack. No, He’s a loving God who has no limits or boundaries.
He said, “You will seek me an you will find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13) Does that sound like a far off God? He just wants you to come after Him, so come. Any way you want!
In your pajamas, laying in your bed, with bed-head and holes in your stockings. Unkempt and unclean, depressed and afraid, just come. His Spirit will wrap around your spirit and breathe into you peace and joy. He’ll wipe away your tears, your doubts and fears, simply because you came.
Enjoy The Presence,
