    In that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying, 'Who then is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?' Jesus called a little child to himself, and set him in the midst of them, and said, 'Most assuredly I tell you, unless you turn, and become as little children, you will in no way enter into the Kingdom...

    Come now, and let us reason together, says Yahweh: 'Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land Isaiah 1:18 WEBAs I looked out over the fresh snow that now ...

Power Filled Presence

  • Moses said to Yahweh, 'Behold, you tell me, 'Bring up this people:' and you haven't let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.' Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may know you, so that I may find favor in your sight: and consider that this nation is your people.' He said, 'My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.' He said to him, 'If your presence doesn't go with me, don't carry us up from here.' Exodus 33:12 WEB

    When the Lord started sending me computer networks to maintain in the late 80s, I had no clue as to what I was doing. There was no Internet to research issues with then, at least as we know it today. Everything was controlled through the command line. There was no one in my area that even worked on computer networks. I was on my own, except for His presence. Time after time, day after day, I would just pray all the way to the site, fix it almost magically and leave with them thinking that I was brilliant. It was entirely the Lord's presence. You can do anything that He calls you to do, if you don't let fear hold you back.

    Moses did not want to leave without God's presence going with him. When God was with him, he was all powerful. Without Him, Moses was nothing but a shepherd. Gideon led an army of three-hundred men against a giant army (Judges 7:12) because the Lord was with him. David killed Goliath while the rest of the army cowered in fear (1 Samuel 17:49). David was willing, and that is all that God needed. He doesn't need your abilities, He just needs a willing heart. God will equip the one that has the heart to step out, with the abilities.

    I know that some will quote, 'He will never leave nor forsake you' and that is true, but that is not what I am talking about. You can enter into the presence of God in a special way through prayer and ask for His help. Even Jesus had special times when the power of God was present to heal (Luke 5:17). Though His life was planned out long ago (Isaiah 52:13), Jesus sometimes spent all night in prayer to bring it to pass (Luke 6:12). Our prayer matters. Do not assume that it will just happen. I love when it does, but your sincere prayer is a major part of your breakthrough.

    Don't struggle and try to make it happen on your own. Invite the Lord's presence into your problems and watch them dissolve. Just be honest: 'Lord, I cannot do this without you! Please come with me and give me the grace to do this in Jesus' name.' When His Presence is there, you can do anything that He calls you to do.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I need You today. Please come and cover with me with Your presence. I need Your help Lord. Teach me what I need to know. Help me to see the big picture, and flood my life with Your presence for I cannot do this without You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: For those who are participating in our Creation Photographers theme of the week: Psalm 23:1-6 "A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows." ~ This week's fun theme will be 'Through the Valleys and the Pastures' and is open wide for creative interpretation as always! You are also encouraged to post anything else that inspires you as well. My photos today reflect some of the beauty in our valleys and pastures here in Northern California. Have an amazing 'fear no evil' kinda week RHM family! Isn't it wonderful to know the Lord walks with us through it all? God bless! Here is the link: Creation Photographers
