Still There

Exodus 13:20-22

Psalm 27:8

God guided His people out of Egypt with a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night…two different methods but the same message.

Because of the circumstances it was necessary for God to show himself differently even though His presence was always there…

Maybe you’re going through something and you’re wondering where God went. He hasn’t gone anywhere. He is still there guiding you, He might have just changed the way He is showing it.

Leaping For Joy

Luke 1:41

John leaped in his mother, Elisabeth’s womb when he sensed Jesus was near.

How do you react when you acknowledge God’s presence in your life?

Are you grateful that The Lord has chosen to involve Himself into your day to day walk? Or are you put off by the fact that He wants to mold you and make you into what He would have you to be, perhaps going against your desires?

The way you’re living, the priorities of your life will dictate how you feel about God’s presence.

Live so that, like John, you enjoy being with Jesus.

Walking With The Creator

Isaiah 43:1-7

Paul was shipwrecked. Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego were thrown into a fiery furnace. The list of God’s people that dealt with hard situations goes on.

Paul reached land unharmed. Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego didn’t have a hair on their head singed. God’s grace, strength and presence are evident in His children’s lives.

These people of God faced terribly frightening circumstances. They had no idea what the outcome would be. Yet they chose to walk through it because they knew who would be walking with them.

God was by their side. Just as He is for you. When you accepted His gift of salvation you welcomed His presence into your life. Being a follower of Christ doesn’t mean that you become exempt from life’s trials. Being a follower of Christ means that you will have Jesus to walk through those trials with you.

He has created you for His glory. Glorify Him in whatever situation you might face.
