In His Presence
In HIS Presence


Read: PSALM 32:8-11

Meditation verse:

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29)

You do not know everything; else you would be God. And since you do not know everything, you may make mistakes, misunderstand others, take wrong decisions and act in ignorance. Your assumptions and perspectives to issues may be incorrect. You may utter the wrong words and offend others. If this is so, why are you living in self-condemnation? Why do you constantly guilt-trip? 

God understands your humanity. “For He knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust” (Psalm 103:14). God does not condemn you, rather He justifies you. It is the devil who accuses you and keeps you in a state of self-condemnation. The bible refers to Satan as the ‘accuser of brethren’ (Revelations 12:10). But faith comes by hearing “and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).


So, it is okay not to understand everything; it is okay not to know certain things. It is okay to make mistakes and fail sometimes. But when you do, learn the lessons you need to and move on quickly. Do not remain stuck in your errors. A verse in the famous song by Cristy Lane goes like this:


I’m only human,
I’m just a woman.
Help me believe in what I could be and all that I am.
Show me the stairway, I have to climb.
Lord for my sake, teach me to take one day at a time.


You are only human, make this song your prayer today.


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.
