In HIS Presence


Read: 2 TIMOTHY 1:15-18

Meditation verse:
“But when he arrived in Rome, he sought me out very zealously and found me” (2 Timothy 1:17).

Certain people will be drawn to you, others will be repelled by the very essence of who you are. There are about seven billion people on earth and each one of these is different. No two individuals are the same, even identical twins. We are all wired differently, with our own abilities and personalities. Your personality type is your preferred and natural way of living and relating with the outer world; in terms of how you process information, make decisions, relate with others as well as your approach to life. Some people are extroverts, others are introverts. Some people prefer a structured approach to life, other prefer a more spontaneous and flexible approach. Some people are logical, preferring to deal with hard facts, others see the big picture.

If this is the case, why would you expect everyone to like and accept you? Why would you feel rejected when you do not fit into certain groups? Not everyone will get you. Certain personality types will naturally gravitate towards you, others will not. You would be naturally drawn to certain groups of individuals and environments, and you will be repelled by others. Pause for a moment and write your name on a sheet of paper, then using your other hand write your name again. You will discover that when you used your preferred hand, you could easily write down your name and the letters were clear. Using the other hand was difficult and clumsy. You will also discover that you were more comfortable in the first instance.

You have a preferred way of doing things. There are people you would naturally gravitate towards and vice versa. There are environments you would flourish in and there are others you would struggle in. Once you acknowledge this truth, your life will be easier and your relationships better. Rejections will become easier to accept. So, understand this, not everyone will get you and you will not get everyone.

Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour?

Jesus says in Mathew 11:28; “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, this invitation is for you. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart; all you need to do is invite Him in, by believing and receiving Him.

Are you ready? Here’s a prayer you can say right now:

Dear Lord, I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of grace. I believe that Jesus died to set me free from my sins. Thank You Jesus for dying to save me. Please forgive me for all my sins and come into my heart. Be my Lord and Saviour. Fill me with Your Spirit and enable me to live for You from now onwards, in Jesus’ name, Amen

If you prayed this prayer, please email me at and let me know about it. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my eBook; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your journey with Jesus.
