Greetings fellow bloggers, sisters and brothers,
I was asked to make an entry on zionhill blog. I am completely ignorant when it comes to blogging. It took me one hundred years to negogiate my way to this point, so, I hope i am understanding the process. anyway, here goes.
a friend of mine called me one day and said that the Spirit of the Lord spoke to her and told her to call me and tell me to write about the Presence of the Lord. She explained to me the God would give me what to say. I did write a brief passage and thought it would be a good idea to share it here.
When she hung up, the first thing that came to mind was the song that says:
The presence of the Lord is here, the presence of the Lord is here. I feel it in the atmosphere; the presence of the Lord is here. The presence of the Lord is here.
I can feel the presence of the Lord and I’m going to get my blessing right now.
After the song, the following thoughts came to mind:
The presence of the Lord is power. The presence of the Lord is glory. The presence of the Lord is light. As the presence of the Lord manifested in a pillar of cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night, in the days of Israel in the wilderness, so does his presence go before us today. Let us open our eyes and see it.
As the glorious presence of the Lord rested upon the tabernacle in the wilderness, it rests upon the house of the Lord today. Yet, only the true man or woman of God can commune with Him at the entrance and within the house.
The presence of the Lord is in the air that we breathe because it is His breath, His wind. He blows on us and covers us with His righteousness each day. When we take in each breath, we breathe in His presence. The presence of the Lord is with us in our dark days. When we feel hope in the midst of the darkness and despair, that is His presence.
