presence

September 17, 2009

Last night I went to midweek service at Highlands. It was just an ordinary night, just another service when I entered the building. As the service started and I began to worship, I could feel something was different. I could tangibly feel the presence of the Lord in the room. The Holy Spirit was on the move. I experienced worship unlike anything I’ve ever known before. His presence literally took my breath away. For an entire song I sat and just experienced peace and love that was being poured out on me.

I found this quote from C.S. Lewis and it completely describes what I experienced last night.

“It is in the process of being worshipped that God communicates His presence to men.”

As you go throughout your week, I pray that you experience worship like you never have before. May God reveal to you His presence and love.

truth

If we really love Jesus we will increasingly love what he loves.

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God, and God in him.
– 1 John 4:16

waiting

September 9, 2009

It’s always weird when you are in a position of waiting on God, and you don’t know what’s next in His plan for your life. These transitional periods always drive me crazy, and it takes everything within me to keep my mind focused on my purpose and His plan for my life. There is a verse that keeps coming to my mind, and I know it has some major significance in what’s going on in my life right now.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

Dwell on that verse for a while. See what the Lord has to say to you about it. He has plenty to say to me!
