Found in Your presence… - May we turn our hearts to seek God – our great I Am – as we become more spiritually aware of His presence in our lives. May we not miss a single opportunity to hear His voice, to obey His will and to stand firm on His promises. May we be steadfast in our devotional time – going back to God’s Word as the foundation of our lives; our source of WISDOM; and the TRUTH that sets us free and gives us eternal HOPE. (Matthew 6:33)
Perfect Peace! - Our response to difficult situations or to tragedies exposes the foundation on which our lives are built. How do you respond when confronted with a crisis? Who do you run to first, when you need help? Once we know the perfect peace of God, we are able to rest in the strength of His everlasting goodness, unfailing faithfulness, immeasurable grace and unconditional love.
A life of worship... - I was challenged this week to take a deeper look into how our lives (our actions and reactions, the joys and sorrow – the things that flows from our hearts) reflect and worship God. How often do we go through the motion of “worshipping” God with our lips while our hearts are far away from Him? Worship reveals the true condition of our hearts. It reveals who is truly King and Lord over our lives. It reveals who or what holds the highest priority in our lives. Our thoughts, words and actions flow from the condition of our hearts...
To be close to God... The most important relationship we have is with our Heavenly Father – this is where our life and existence flow from (Job 33:4). If we want to cultivate an intimate relationship with God, our hearts and flesh (our entire beings) need to cry out to be in His presence (Psalm 121:1-2). How do we achieve being in God’s presence – seeking Him above all else?
