In HIS Presence


Read: Deuteronomy 1:1-8 

Meditation verse: 

“See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord  swore to your fathers- to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob- to give to them and their  descendants after them” (Deuteronomy 1:8). 

After forty years of wandering in the wilderness, God spoke to the children of  Israel through Moses, informing them that they had dwelt long enough on this  mountain, and it was time to begin their journey to the promised land. He had  already given them the land; they were to go in and take possession. 

Prayer must have its place in our lives, but there is a time and a place for acting.  Several times, we keep praying and committing a particular endeavor into God’s  hands, even after we have received clarity concerning what to do. As a young  Christian, I had the habit of praying and expecting God to work miracles whilst I  did nothing, until I came to an understanding that God expects us to act after  we pray. In the place of prayer, we receive clarity, wisdom, and strength, and  then we must do as the Spirit directs our hearts. There is a time to pray and a  time to act.  

If you have been praying for a breakthrough in an area of your life and it seems  to tarry, could it be that God is waiting for you to act? It’s the beginning of a new  month and God is saying to you “see, I have set the land before you, go in and  take possession”. Are you willing to take a step of faith today?

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at rockteachingministry@gmail.com. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.

I look forward to hearing from you.
