Tonight we attended a Bible Study at our Host's home in Riverside California. He spoke primarily in Spanish, but my wife, Izzy, was able to translate anything of which I was unsure. The phrase that caught my attention this evening was: If people are not in the presence of God they can not help it if they malfunction. They are unable to function at 100%, and will make mistakes, because they are out of the presence of God. A light went off. How can you feel anything except compassion for those who are out of the presence of God? This opens up a whole new level of "acceptance of others" to me; and acceptance of myself. Since hearing this message, I have a conscious desire to locate, identify, and remain in the presence of God. That is our one true calling; to be in his presence. How do you locate God? He is omni-present. He is right there with you right now. Are you unsure? The bible tells us that God inhabits the praises of his people. Do you want to absolutely know that God is right here right now? Then, start praising Him and experience His Presence right now. Whenever you are unsure, stop and pray. His presence will manifest and his peace will come. The Bible tell us that God's mercy endures forever. So, don't you for even one second doubt His Love for you. Got it? Get in His presence right now.
God, thank you that because of Jesus I can be in your presence. Let me feel your Love, Mercy & Grace right now and for the rest of the day. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.
