221 – Exhorted to Live in His Presence
October 15, 1986
I see that the only way we can be gracious and go with the flow is to have come through our experiences and stressful times being in continual companionship with Jesus.
I got to go to early morning chapel on campus yesterday. It was wonderful and God was present and moving.
Brother Edwards spoke of seeing the Lord’s presence manifested and His manifest presence. I forget which is which.
But as I read in Acts 2 this morning:
22 Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst.
25 “For David says of Him, ‘I SAW THE LORD ALWAYS IN MY PRESENCE; FOR HE IS AT MY RIGHT HAND, SO THAT I WILL NOT BE SHAKEN.”
26 ‘THEREFORE [being in His Presence] MY HEART WAS GLAD AND MY TONGUE EXULTED; MOREOVER MY FLESH ALSO WILL LIVE IN HOPE;
28 ‘YOU HAVE MADE KNOWN TO ME THE WAYS OF LIFE; YOU WILL MAKE ME FULL OF GLADNESS WITH YOUR PRESENCE.’
O Lord, My God. In your presence I will not be shaken. In Your presence my heart is glad and I have hope. In Your presence we fellowship and I am full of gladness. I love gladness!
