In His Presence
July 31, 2023
“Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!” Psalm 105:4 (ESV)
There are times in all of our lives that we will need some encouragement. Trials and tribulations will come our way and it can seem we are faced with more challenges than sunny days. In those moments of stress we must remember that we never walk alone, and through it all The Lord is with us, and He will give us the strength we need to make it through every situation we face. The Scripture reminds us, seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! I encourage you today to seek The Lord and His strength and know that He will give you all that you need to make it. When you are going through those difficult moments in your life, lift your hands and your head and know that your stronger than your situation, because your strength comes from The Lord. When you seemed to have more problems than solutions, lift your hands and your head and seek The Lord, and He will direct your path and lead you to the places and spaces that He has designed just for you. No matter how rough a day, week, month, or year you may be having, press your way into the presence of The Lord because it is in His presence that you will find everything you need. There is joy in His presence. There is peace in His presence and there is love in His presence to see you through it all. No matter what I am facing in my life, I will always seek The Lord. I will find myself fin His presence, because everything I need is in His presence. Since I am determined to seek The Lord and be in His presence, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for giving me the strength I need when I don’t think I can make it. Thank you for always being so near to me that I can always run and be in your presence. Thank you for being my God and my all and all. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
