Reverence His Presence

Let us allow God to perfect us in His holiness. This is not said to project some kind of hyperspirituality. Yet, Jesus said in John 15:7 “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”

As you develop an intimate, personal relationship with Christ, there will be times when He will lead you to be alone with Him. You may become so overwhelmed with the presence of God abiding in you that you will fall down on your face before Him. Prostrate before the Lord, you will experience deep reverence for God’s presence, all because you refuse to have a casual relationship with Him.

Whenever Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob prayed, they were always flat on their faces with their hands out before them, crying out to God. We need to be able to hear God when He says, “Who will go for us?”-whether it’s to go into Jerusalem, or Judea, or Samaria, or to sit at the table with somebody who is in pain or in need. We need to be so open to the nature of that compelling love and indwelling compassion. May we reveal the wisdom of His nature as He communicates it to us.
