“You hide them in the shelter of your presence.”
Psalms 31:20 (NLT)
It is hard to fathom how magnificent God really is. He is so great that when Elijah was at a mountain speaking to God, all God had to do was pass by and there was a great wind, earthquake and fire. Moses knew God perhaps more than any living man so when he was ready to take the people into the wilderness, He begged God to be present with them. As an assurance Moses asked God to show him His presence. God replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you.- But you may not look directly at my face, for no one may see me and live.” As well, David, a man whom the Bible says “was a man after God’s own heart,” comes to God in the midst of all his trouble and says, “How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you. You lavish it on those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world. You hide them in the shelter of your presence.” God’s presence . . . how mighty, how breathtaking, how personal and how available. Come to God today. Join Elijah, Moses and David and enjoy the shelter of God’s presence.
Oh Father, how I thank You for the death of Your son so I can come boldly into Your presence and find all the love, peace and joy I will ever need. Let me sense Your presence in my life today. In Jesus’ name.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
I find shelter in God’s presence
God is as close to you as your own breath. His presence is real and weighty. Quiet your heart and whisper, “Lord, let me sense Your presence.” Sit quietly with your hands in a receiving position. Whisper again, “Let me sense Your presence.” Breathe deep and just let the presence of God fill you. Wait on Him, enjoy Him as you picture His presence with you. After a few moments, finish by saying, “Thank You, God, for sheltering me in Your presence.”
