WAITING IN GOD’S PRESENCE

Sep 9, 2021

 Psalms 84:10 For better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere…

The benefits achieved by spending one day in the presence of the Lord will carry you for a thousand days. Place value on every moment you spend in His presence because the grace you download will dictate the rest of your life.

 Early will I seek You… Psalms 63:1

Psalms 130:6 My soul [waits] for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning…

David dominated his days by the secret place.

Our generation has lost the art of waiting in His presence. They do other things six days yet while in church they are in a hurry to catch up with other programs.

The only way to catch up with lost times and seasons is to absorb ourselves in His presence. ( Matthew 20:16)

When eternity invades time, time is suspended. This is what we call a miracle. When the natural law is taken over by the supernatural, for example, an instant healing.

When our soul is invaded by His presence, recoveries are made.

 Joel 2:25 ” “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,…

By the natural laws, you are already disadvantaged. It will only take God and divine intervention to outrun men who began five years ahead of you.

Let’s learn to patiently wait on God in worship, adoration, and prayer in His presence.

 Psalms 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the highest God Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

The glorious dimensions of heaven are hidden in His secret place.

 Jeremiah 12:5 ” If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And [if] in the land of peace, [In which] you trusted, [they wearied you,] Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?

The only way to overcome the land of the jungle is in His presence.

When your competitors have gone ahead of you, God’s formula for catching up and overtaking them is His presence.

 1 King 18:41-46… Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for [there is] the sound of abundance of rain….” When the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah he overrun the chariots

There is a glory that can come upon your business, career, and marriage and make you outrun men who have gone ahead of you. This glory is your advantage in this life.

 Isaiah 66:1-2 Thus says the LORD: ” Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool. ….. ” But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word.

Every time you go in the presence of God, humble yourself and don’t time Him.

Imitate Martin Luther King who said, “I have so much to do that I spend my first three hours In the presence of God”.

The wisdom and intelligence Daniel engaged and obtained from the presence of God outmatched all of the men of the world ( Read  Daniel 9).

Like Jacob, let’s change our approach towards God and be serious to be able to download the measure of grace needed to change this generation. ( Genesis 32:22-32)

This is what will birth greater manifestations of His glory this month.

 Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God

Give God first priority in your life. When You are serious with Him, He will be serious with you!.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU, PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.!
