Love you all, praying for you.
I’m so amazed at how God unfolds His Word. Here is a miracle and a mystery. Ten years from now or ten days from now in your PRISM Time – you may S.O.A.P. out a verse that you are soaping out today. Same verse – but new revelation. God’s Word is so deep, unfathomable, God will continue to reveal things to you for eternity – in His Word. His Word is endless truth, endless power, endless insight, endless understanding, endless wisdom, endless effectiveness, endless transformation, and endless success! Praise God His Word is life!
God challenged me recently. Do you go out or come home? When you spend time with me – do you have to go out? Or do you come home? They say home is where the heart is. So, where’s your heart and where’s your home? Where You Live At? Psalm 84:1-2 How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty. My soul yearns even faints for the courts of the LORD. His presence is lovely, there’s a peace, a purity and a power there. Is His dwelling place, your dwelling place? Do you long for his presence? You have to get there, before you long to… You have to chose to, before you long to. 1st you acquire the taste, then you acquire the passion. My soul longs for the courts of the LORD! That doesn’t happen before the 1st time or before the habit. That’s what the habit produces. Habits produce something! That’s why PiVAT is so important, That’s why time in His presence, getting His direction for you is so important. What is God telling you to do today? Two kinds of things. Things for today – today’s specific assignment, and things for every day – God ordained habits. They produce something, they produce something in you, and they produce you for something. First your heart, and then your flesh – cry out for the living God. Decisions are made in the heart. Heart decision is a deep thing. First decide in your heart “I will make His Presence, My Priority!” It’s where I feel His love, it’s where I am awed by who He is, it’s where I receive His instruction for me, His direction for me, His very next step, and everything He wants to produce in me. First you decide in your heart, then you make it a habit, and then your flesh will start to cry out. PiVAT before dinner - Get His Presence on your calendar, your daily schedule. Ask Him. 1st thing in the morning, last thing before you go to bed. Maybe instead of other things (time wasters), maybe 3:00 in the afternoon, or after school, or before dinner, out in your car, or on your break time. Decide in your heart. Time in His presence is the only thing that brings a passion for His presence. Ask Him every PiVAT before dinner. What is my regular time, and what is any other time that you are calling me to – with you?
Then verse 3 gives an amazing secret about God’s will for you in His presence. “Even the sparrow has found a home, the swallow a nest for herself, a place near your altar. Wow! Think about that – they don’t go out somewhere to find His presence – they come home to it. His presence is so valuable that they make it their home – they make their home as close to HIM as they can get. Do you live there daily, go to bed there at night, wake up there in the morning? Do you go out from there every day, do you come home to that place every day. His Presence?
Praying that you - that just like the sparrow and the swallow, you will make His presence your home, that you wouldn’t have to go out to it, but you would come home to it. That His Presence would be your priority, His Praise, His Worship, His Word, His atmosphere, before you leave in the morning, when you come home at night. That it gets to the place where you live there! It’s where you live at! It’s where you run home for lunch to… it’s where you just want to spend an evening at home – with Him in His presence. David said seven times a day I will praise you. He made God’s Presence the Priority of His Day – that’s how God’s presence became the priority of His life. It's how he became an obeyer, a man after God's own heart. Your kids will see it, and live it, and know nothing else. His presence will become home to them too!
Praying that you will decide in your heart, so your habits follow, so your flesh follows. So that your heart and your flesh follows after, longs for, comes home to - the Living God – and the joy and peace that He brings, your steps directed each day in Him! When your Home becomes His Presence, because His Presence has become your home, when your heart and your flesh long for the Living God - that’s where His plans for you become your reality, It’s where His destiny for you becomes your testimony. It’s where His peace surrounds you and His joy fills you. And nothing sways you – because your heart and your flesh are established in His Word. And one more thing… Your Daily Call will keep you in His Presence. It will help make His Presence your Home – it will keep you there. Your Testimony on that Daily Call - brings His Presence that you live in… to someone else. You overcome by it, they are blessed by it, God is glorified through it, and it keeps drawing you closer!
