In the presence of my King 11 August, 2019

In the presence of our King we are drawn up to His throne room of grace …

In the presence of our King we are called to a higher calling, called to our ultimate purpose …

In the presence of our King we are called into oneness with the vine to whom we are the branches …

This is how we stay as closely interwoven as the branch…is to the vine.

In the presence of our King all things of the world are drawn away from our hearts and minds …

In the presence of our King our focus solely on Him … Creator of us … the created beings. Knowing our flaws, knowing our weaknesses and temptations, how we fall into them by the desires of our own hearts, yet loving us unconditionally … perfectly … fully …

I don’t deserve this grace …

I don’t deserve His face …

His glory shining down on me … His perfection pouring favour over me … His Love, Love of perfection casting out every fear, every doubt … perfect Love … Loving at all times … especially when I don’t deserve it … He’s Loving me to wholeness.

In the presence of my King I become who my Creator created me to be …

In the presence of my King I become equipped to face the day boldly … as me …

In the presence of my King I become aware of His greatness and that in each of us is a uniqueness placed there by His Hand of Love …

In the presence of my King I become aware that my mistakes are mistakes, yet He empowers me by His Holy Spirit to overcome my downfalls, to be stronger than before, that when I fall my instinct is to call …

Call on the presence of my King …

Lean …

Lean on the presence of my King …

Those times of quiet intimacy in private … the strength of my daily walk in the light

Things I do in the dark, things I do in the night …

They become my strength …

What I do at night …

I use this to ignite …

My days with His holy fire …

His holy fire with the life-giving power of the word …

This may seem absurd …

Yet it is the equation He Himself displayed …

The example He gave when He walked the earth …

What He did in private ignited His public walk …

If the Master did and in His earthly being needed to …

Then how much more me and you????

In the presence of my King …

He reveals … everything …

His words promise of … I have supplied everything …

Everything you need for life and godliness …

In the presence of my King …

Can we really afford to wait …

Can we really wait until we hate …

Our very lives before we submit …

Before we surrender …

Can we really afford to wait, to follow His pure, simple, perfect example?


Can we commit …

Can we commit to a life of surrender, knowing He has all the answers anyway?

Can we really afford not to commit … allowing our lives to be taken up into His presence daily, where equipping, strengthening and understanding grace meet love and perfection …

Can we really afford to miss an opportunity with the One who created everything and can supply us … anything …

Can we afford to wonder about submission, commitment, time to fit it in … when the presence of our King … is at hand …

Will we allow it to slip away …

Will we allow time, the world, pressure, people to continue to be our excuses … or will we commit and obey and … here it is the modern-day word to hate … will we be prepared to submit … will we be prepared to submit our entire lives … our entire thought process … our emotional well-being to the one who created us … He made us … He gave us these desires … when we submit He adds no pressure … when we submit … He takes no joy … when we submit His hand is here to catch and carry us when mistakes are made … even the big ones that are potentially threatening … He catches us and carries us … by His grace … when we submit …

What are we willing to do …

What are we willing to sacrifice …

What are we willing to commit to …

In the scheme of eternity … what are we really asking … that we live our lives to the fullest purpose we are created for by our perfect Creator being, Daddy God … what are we waiting for people?

If 5 minutes, or 15 minutes or 30 minutes with our Creator God, heavenly Father, grace-delivering Holy Spirit, tender-loving Lord Jesus can bring us into right relationship with Him, where submission isn’t our present-day “S” word but a response our hearts take naturally in reaction to the perfect relationship with Him … and eternity, knowing those minutes would have put purpose, meaning, grace, and perfect direction into my life … and I consider eternity … where I meet Him face to face … officially … and He says either … why did you not draw near to me … I do not know you …

Or …

Well done my good and faithful servant … with little you accomplished much …

This is what I live for … my master’s acclaim … no other…

Will you join me?

Isaiah 45: 22-25

“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.

By myself have I sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked:

‘Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear. They will say of me, ‘In the Lord alone are righteousness and strength.’”

All who have raged against Him will come to Him and be put to shame.

But in the Lord all the descendants of Israel will be found righteous and will exult.”

This is what I live for:

“At the name of the Lord every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”
