"Just to be close to You; is where I want to be; Let me hide myself inside Your heart to find my destiny... "
The words are so deep and convey so much of our cry unto God.
We all want to find our purpose, our very reason for living in God. That's why we pant after God - He alone is our heart's desire .
"As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God."
- and that's why He has promised us His abiding presence.
And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exo 33:14
Lord, may we find You as we seek You, may we be filled as we thirst for You and may we be satisfied as we long for You in Jesus' name Amen . Your presence is heaven to me!
But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deut 4:29
The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the Lord , At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. Psalms 97:5
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil,
So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: “For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” Gen 32:30
Awesome Testimony! Seeing God face to face preserved Jacob's life. So in God's presence our life is preserved. AMEN Hallelujah
In this season, as we are locked-in, we should desire to have such an encounter, to see God. I so desire to so do. Yes to behold God just like Moses did and His face shone!
Now it was so, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the Testimony were in Moses’ hand when he came down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone while he talked with Him. And whenever the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone, then Moses would put the veil on his face again, until he went in to speak with Him.
Exodus 34:29, 35
May God grant you an open door to His abiding presence in Jesus' name AMEN
