His Presence

By   •   November 30   •   Topics:

W.C. Burns of India wrote, “Oh to have a martyr’s heart, if not a martyr’s crown.” Popularity and adulation are far more dangerous for the Christian than persecution. It is easy, when all goes smoothly, to lose our sense of balance and our perspective. The important thing is to walk with Christ, to live for Christ, and to have one consuming passion—to please Him. Then, whatever happens, we know that He has permitted it in order to teach us some priceless lesson and to perfect us for His service. He will enrich our circumstances, be they pleasant or disagreeable, by the fact of His presence with us.

Prayer for the day

Lord, my soul wants to love and know You far more deeply. Forgive the times I have set my eyes on things that keep me from You.

    The Ark of the Covenant represents the presence of the Living God in the lives of the Israelites.It is His declaration of authority over their lives.The Ark contains the two stone tablets (10 commandments),golden jar of manna & Aaron’s rod. When we accepted Christ,He sealed us with His Holy Spirit & put a cover on us.He is the Shepherd,caring for His sheep.Thank God for His presence which is alive in our lives.His miraculous provision is always there & we know how to live a regret-free life because we He gave us The Book.

    Is suffering essential to the Christian life? Jesus says we will suffer for his name sake. Is there an explanation for this ?

    Billy Graham has been my Christian hero from the day I invited Christ into my life 24 years ago, and I am now 85

    Generally speaking God permits trials and tribulations so you will rely on him even more. Its during these times that you should listen and grow. Try and stay focused at all times both good and bad.

    Thankyou. May God send grant us times of peace as described in Acts I believe. Also may we listen to and choose and pray for our good counselors. “For what is impossible with man is possible with God.” Genesis Jeremiah and the gospels. We all may have embarasing or weak moments. “But out of all of them God delivered me.” St. Paul and the good Bible teacher say. Thanks.PTL.
