IN DEBT to the Believer and the Unbeliever
"Both to Greeks and to barbarians
(to the cultured and the uncultured), both to the wise and to the foolish,
I have an obligation to discharge and a duty to perform and a debt to pay."
Romans 1:14 (Amp

The Power of His Presence

"In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures evermore."
Psalm 16:11

God wants to invade your circumstances. He wants to come in and invade with His love, His power and His grace. The Spirit is saying, "Turn your heart and attention back to God. Come back to Him in total surrender. Come and sit in His presence, empty and open, and ready to receive. Come as you are. Come with your baggage. Come with the weights of your worries and lay them at His feet. Then open your heart to receive..........His love is supernatural. His love will fill your soul with peace, and  it will rest on you like a blanket."

That is a miracle.
You come in totally weighed down, heavy, worn, broken and waisted, and you leave refreshed, strengthened and renewed in your faith and able to go back into your circumstances as a new man, empowered by God, by His Holy Spirit, with a fresh mindset and a new attitude. It's the attitude of Christ, a heart and mind that's been reshaped and molded by the very power and presence of God Himself. His presence is everything.  His presence works miracles, first in us and then in our circumstances.

We must take time to come to God, to come into His presence. We must take time to put Him first in our lives by coming to Him and waiting on Him, learning to hear His voice and receive His guidance. God is the One that knows all things. He is our Father. He is the One that created us and knows what is best for us. He wants us molded and made into the image of His Son, Jesus. He wants us to learn to live in this world but to live in it through another realm, the realm of His Spirit. He wants to invade this world with His light and love and make a clear definition and contrast of the two kingdoms, the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness, His kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven. It's heaven invading earth through broken vessels healed and made whole in the very presence of God.

We are imperfect vessels, but in His presence, as we sit upon the potters wheel, our Father places His hands upon our lives and He molds and shapes us, pouring the water of His Spirit and love upon us to soften the hardened clay of our stubborn and rebellious hearts and minds. It's supernatural. But it's the way of the Master. It's the way of God. We must surrender and give it all to Him. We must learn the power of His presence, the power of waiting on Him and being yielded to His reshaping and timing. God is making imperfect vessels into vessels of honor for His glory. Only He can do that. Only the hands of the Master and the love of the Father can change us and make us new and make us the vessels of honor that we are created to be. 

The Spirit of God is calling and drawing us today into His presence, to surrender all, to let the Father place His hands upon our lives and shape us into the image of His Son. Won't you hear and answer the call? Won't you respond to the Spirit and make practicing His presence a priority in your day. It's vital in this hour. We MUST have His presence in our lives.

Help us, Lord. Let this word from You go deep into our spirit and cause us to prioritize our time with You everyday. Help us to come to You and sit upon the potters wheel and let You complete Your work in us. Help us yield and surrender all and trust that You truly are working all things together for our good. We want to be like Jesus. We want to be vessels of honor fit for the Master's use. Amen
