“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 (NKJV)
Growing up as a child, I had the privilege of taking care of my mother’s rose garden. Those roses were her pride and joy. Every weekend I would gently pull the weeds, and any other debris, so that nothing interfered with their growth. The roses always seemed more lively and beautiful in the presence of my mother.
Through time spent in the presence of the Almighty God, the Holy Spirit begins to heal and remove the inner pollution the world has contaminated us with over the years, and replace it with His purity. As things are revealed, and we surrender to Him, these issues are pulled up from the root of our soul allowing us to be more connected with Him. Although it isn’t an easy process, the end result is more spiritually strengthening than we ever could imagine. We start becoming more aware of His presence in everything we say and do. We realize that there is no sweeter smelling aroma than the presence of the Great I AM. There are no limits to where the Lord will take you. His presence is literally Heaven on earth. May His presence overwhelm you today.
Prayer: Lord, I call on You today. I ask that You reveal to me what needs to be surrendered so that I can go deeper with you in this relationship. Teach me how to be in Your presence at all times. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
(Ecclesiastes 3; 2 Corinthians 2:15; Philippians 4:18)
