A Month to Glory in His Presence

Praise the Lord! I pray that you and your family are fine and well kept of the Lord. My wife and I are well and blessed of the Lord.
 
God has placed in my heart that this Month shall be a Month to Glory in His Presence.
 
Friend, remember God promised Moses that His presence would go with him. And from scripture we see that not only did a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night accompany him and the children of Israel but also, when Moses went up the mountain, the weight of glory covered him causing his face to shine. Friend, I see God’s glory accompanying us each day and each night in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
 
Quoted below is an interesting set of questions that the Apostle Paul asked the Church in Corinth. He refers to Moses and how the glory made his face so radiant that he had to use a veil to cover it and contrasted it with what God has made available to us in the new covenant through Christ Jesus. Friend, may God open your eyes to receive this truth in Jesus Name, Amen.
 
Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, fading though it was, will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious? If the ministry that condemns men is glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. And if what was fading away came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts! (1 Corinthians 3: 7-11).
 
Open eyes
 
Friend, Like the Apostle Paul, I cry that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened to this truth. This realm of glorying in His presence is available to each one of us. It is the realm where anyone who is sick and that comes into contact with your shadow receives healing. It is the realm where your image reflects that of your Lord as depicted in Revelations 1: 14 “His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire” I pray this becomes your portion in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
 
Now a question is posed; If the realm Moses walked in was a temporary one, how much more that which is available to us now? Friend, that glory that was on Moses is nothing compared to the surpassing glory that is now available to you and I. Dear God, let a hunger and a thirst for the glory of your presence be stirred up in the spirit of my dear friend in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen
 
In His Presence
 
In His presence, the Bible says:-
  • You will experience times of refreshing. (Acts 3:19)
          This means that this will be a time of revival and recovery
  • You will be changed into His image. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
         This means that weights that easily beset us fall off and we become more like Him.
  • He marks you out (Exodus 33: 15-17)
          The Lord marks you out and call you by your name 
  •  You receive fullness of Joy (Psalm 16:11)
          Gladness and pleasure that is unique becomes your portion
  • You will receive rest (Exodus 33: 14)
           Rest, quiet, peace becomes common place in all that you do. No anxiety, no worries. No Fear! Glory to God!
  •  You will remain secure in His Presence (Psalm 31:20)
           No ungodly utterance will reach you
 
Friend, I declare that the pursuit of the “Glory” and the “Presence” of God will cause you to be distinguished from other people in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Friend, may God cause you to stand out because of His glory over your life in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. I decree that whether it be at your work, at church, in school, in your neighborhood, you will be distinguished because of His glory in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
 
Personal Prayer
 
Friend, let these be our personal prayer points:-
  1. Psalm 40 – Let us pray that God will establish us in Himself and bring us into His Presence.
  2. Psalm 42 – Like a Deer that is panting for the waters, let us ask God to grant us a heart that is thirsty for His Presence 
  3. Psalm 91 – Let us ask God to guide us on how to enter the secret place and remain in there just as Joshua did
  4. Hosea 6: 1 – Let us ask God to show us how to follow Him
  5. Isaiah 40:31 – Let us ask God to teach us to wait on Him in His presence
Friend may God truly visit you as you Glory in His Presence in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
 
Remain blessed as you wait on HIM, Amen.
