pressing into God’s presence requires a lot of will and determination. these past few days, i’ve been fasting and praying hard because i feel that i can’t keep on unless i know what His will is for my life at the moment. i need clear revelation.
i’m learning to hear Him amidst the busyness of life. i want to be like Jesus who took time in the morning to spend it quietly with His Father. i want to sit there at His feet learning from Him…hearing Him speak…and following His will. i want to be able to talk and interact with Him.
people say it seems awkward at first, practicing God’s presence. and i agree. sometimes i would sit there in the solitude…listening to the air. but the more i do it, the more i understand that it’s about the heart. heart that is all sold out to Him and longs to be filled by the Spirit. heart that is humbled and broken and repentant. heart that is longing to be healed and restored. heart that awaits God.
when there is no other agenda in our heart, but things of God, we hear His voice.
when our whole being is intensely fixed upon the Lord, nothing in this world can bring us down (although what’s revealed to us can be overwhelming and we suddenly feel inadequate. that’s why being in Him is so vital).
when we know His will and obey it, we know that we are living the life we were created for.
“but he who unites himself with the Lord is one with Him in Spirit.” 1 corinthians 6:17
