Spending time in God’s presence – Prayer for November 4. Praise the Lord everybody! I noticed something over the past 30 years or so about being a man of God, filled with the Holy spirit to the point where the glory of God is shining brightly from your face, and that is people try not to spend too much time around you. That includes other Christians.
Bible Verse for Today
“And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.” (Exodus 34:29-30)
The glory of the Lord is a bright, sin exposing, convicting, holy light that emanates from God and those who spend quality time in His presence and are filled with His spirit. It is understandable that the world is running away from the light, but the children of Israel were God’s chosen people and today just as then many of God’s people, Christians, prefer not to spend too much time in the presence of those who are spending quality time in God’s presence. They not only cross the street, if they can, when they see them approaching but they do their best to assault their character behind their backs. Why does this happen when the opposite should be happening?
In other words, if you are living right before God there is no reason to hide, you want people to see what God is doing in you and through you. Also, it is wonderful thing to be able to freely enjoy the fellowship with the men and women of God when you are not concerned about how bright their light is shining on you because it just means more of God’s love and warmth in your life. If you are overtaken by a fault, confess your sin, repent and continue to stay in the light. God’s word says if we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Brothers and sisters don’t “hate” on those who have given themselves over to God to the point where they are filled with His light shines brightly through them. Seek them out, emulate them, encourage them because there is a high price they have paid for such an anointing. Just a little something to think about. God bless you all.
