In the Presence of Jehovah

Standard

Devotion: Isaiah 12:2

My pastor’s wife; Teresa Brown sings this worship song all to the praise, honor and glory of God. One knows she has experienced the presence of Jehovah; as the melody and words pour forth from her mouth.   It is such a powerful song, that ministers to the very heart and soul of the hearers. It begins by declaring;”In the presence of Jehovah, God Almighty, Prince of Peace. Troubles vanish, hearts are mended, in the presence of the King.”

We easily forget that all we say, do and think; is in the presence of our God.  God’s people take different postures toward their Lord.  Some of us honestly believe we are in control of our own lives.   In this posture, we are at the center of our world and it’s all about us.  Our thought is; God is on the outskirts, available at our bidding.  The other posture places God at the center where we find ourselves in His very presence, experiencing the abundant life of freedom in Christ.

In the book “Beloved Dust, Jamin Goggin and Kyle Strobel say, “Our posture before Jehovah God, reveals the deep reality of who we are and how we see God.”

Search your heart to discern your posture before the Lord your God.  A few days ago, I ask you to examine your style of conversation with friends.  Do your eyes divert away or can you look into the eyes of the one you are conversing with? Of course we cannot literally make eye contact with God as yet.  We are still here on earth.  One day, we will see Him as He is.

Humble yourself before the LORD your God.  Bow before the Lord God Almighty.  Listen for His still small voice.  We were made from the dust of the ground and to dust we shall return. It’s only right to make ourselves low before our God. He is the exalted One.  We should esteem Him every time we pray.  We are in the presence of our Jehovah.

Prayer in Motion:

Jehovah, I desire to be in Your presence.  This day, may I humble myself before You, my Holy God.  You are Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the Great I Am.  I worship You alone, in Spirit and in Truth.  In me is no good thing, except for You LORD.  You are my Jehovah Jireh!,  Jehovah Nissi,  I love and cherish the fact that I can be in Your presence.  In Jesus Name.  Amen
