    So they took up Jonah and threw him into the sea; and the sea ceased its raging. Then the men feared Yahweh exceedingly; and they offered a sacrifice to Yahweh and made vows. Yahweh prepared a huge fish to swallow up Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Then Jon...

    Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that comes against us. We don't know what to do, but our eyes are on you. All Judah stood before Yahweh, with their little ones, their wives, and their children. Then Yahweh's Spirit came' 2 Chronicles 20:12-14 WEB.Wh...

    If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36 WEB.I took one last draw and put the cigarette out. That was over twenty-five years ago and the last time I smoked. I grew up on a farm in the South and worked in tobacco. Everyone I knew smoked. Well, except for one pretty weir...

Power Filled Presence

  • Moses said to Yahweh, "Behold, you tell me, 'Bring up this people:' and you haven't let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.' Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may know you, so that I may find favor in your sight: and consider that this nation is your people." He said, "My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." He said to him, "If your presence doesn't go with me, don't carry us up from here." Exodus 33:12'15 WEB.

    When the Lord first began sending me computer networks to maintain, I had no clue what I was doing. There was no Internet to research issues with then, at least as we know it today. Everything was done with a command prompt. There was no one in my area that even worked on computer networks. So I was on my own, except for His presence. Yet, time after time, day after day, I would just pray all the way to the job site, fix it almost magically, and leave with them thinking that I was brilliant. It was entirely the Lord's presence. You can do anything He calls you to do if you don't let fear hold you back.

    Moses didn't want to leave without God's presence going with him. For when God was with him, Moses was all-powerful. Without Him, Moses was nothing but a simple shepherd. Gideon successfully led an army of three hundred men against a giant army (Judges 7:12) because the Lord was with him. David killed the giant Goliath while the rest of the soldiers cowered in fear (1 Samuel 17:49). For young David was willing, and that was all God needed. He doesn't need your abilities. He only needs a willing heart. God will equip the one who has the heart to step out with the necessary skills.

    I know that some will quote, "He will never leave nor forsake you." While that is true, it isn't the type of presence I am talking about. You can enter into the presence of God in a special way through prayer and ask for His help. Even Jesus had special times when the power of God was present to heal (Luke 5:17). Though His life was planned out long ago (Isaiah 52:13), Jesus sometimes spent all night in prayer to bring God's will to pass (Luke 6:12). Our prayer matters. Don't assume that it will just happen without you praying. I love when it does, but your sincere prayer is a major part of your breakthrough.

    Don't struggle, and try to make it happen on your own. Invite the Lord's presence into your problems, and watch them dissolve. Just be honest with Him: "Lord, I can't do this without you! Please come with me, and give me the grace to do this, in the name of Jesus Christ." When His Presence is there, you can do anything that He calls you to do.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I need You today. Please come and cover with me with Your presence. I need Your help, Lord. Teach me what I need to know. Help me see the big picture and fill my life with Your Holy Spirit. For I can't do this without You. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." (Prov. 3:5-6) ~ If you are in need of prayer, we and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Pastor Dion, I sometimes struggle with knowing if a task is directed by the Lord or is just another problem I've taken upon myself to "fix."  Lord, speak clearly. Teach me what I need to know. I'm listening. Thank you.
