…Experiencing the Presence of God

…Experiencing the Presence of God

Many years ago, God told me something that has stood the test of time throughout my life and ministry. He said, “Lynne, I can change anything about you. I can change your circumstances. I can change your mind. I can change your personality and the way you feel about things. I can change your relationships. I can change anything if you will give Me one thing.”

“What is that, Lord?” I asked.

“Time,” He answered, “time in My presence.”

My, what wonders we would see if we could make an altar to God, put our lives up on that altar…and wait in God’s presence. What different lives we would lead if we discovered God every day in a new way. What power we would see released among us if we simply spent enough time with God and began every day fresh in His presence.

God would be able to do with us what He did with Peter. Do you remember what he was like the night before Jesus went to the cross? He was so frightened of the Jewish leaders that he only followed Jesus from a distance when they took Him away for questioning. And when a little girl recognized Peter and said he had been with Jesus, he denied it. By the time the evening was over, Peter had sworn, cursed and disowned Jesus three times.

But some 50 days later, on the day of Pentecost, Peter walked boldly out of the upper room a different man. Instead of shrinking back in terror, he stood before multitudes and proclaimed Jesus as the Messiah. The Bible says 3,000 people were added to the Church that day.

What happened to Peter? What could have so changed him?

Only one thing. He had experienced God as never before.

He didn’t just read about Him. He didn’t just hear someone talk about Him. He didn’t just accept a doctrine. He experienced Him!

Oh, my friend, set your heart today to discover God in that way. Set your heart to seek Him and to experience Him for yourself.

He is waiting for you.
