I will arise
In HIS Presence


Read: Mathew 7:7-11

Meditation verse:

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Mathew 7:7)


Too many people sit around and wish that something good will happen in their lives. They have great plans, goals, dreams, and aspirations, but they sit around, hoping that God will do it all for them. Afterall, they have fasted and prayed. Hannah prayed and even made a vow to God, remember? But if she did not sleep with Elkanah, her husband, Samuel may not have been born. The bible clearly states, “And Elkanah knew Hannah his wife, and the Lord remembered her”. It’s your effort that God blesses. 

According to Bishop T D Jakes, if you have dreams and aspirations, move towards them with vigour and precision. Your actions must line up with your convictions or you will live a fruitless life. We are no longer in the dispensation of manna, but the dispensation of grace. By grace you have been given everything you need to live an abundant life. Do not let the grace of God upon your life be in vain. Do your part and leave the results to Him. He has never failed anyone; He would not start with you.


Arise this day and take the required steps as led by the Holy Spirit in you. Stop sitting around, quoting scriptures. Stand up to the circumstances of your life and effect the changes you want to see. “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed” (Proverbs 16:3, NLT). If you do nothing, nothing significant will ever happen in your life.


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
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.
