Daily Bible Verse:              1 John 2:17      (NLT)

'This world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.'

- We live in a world that is characterised by constant change.
- Our earthly experience is temporary and fleeting.
- What is popular and essential today may well be irrelevant tomorrow.
- But when we do what pleases God, there is an eternal reward in store for us.

Prayer: Lord, help me to keep my eyes fixed on You. May I not be influenced and drawn away from You by things that are temporary and fading away. I choose to do what pleases You. Amen.

MEETING WITH GOD IS A SACRED MOMENT

May 14, 2021

Meeting with God is always a sacred moment. It is for this reason that when we meet with Him, things change. It is never a casual encounter, it is usually life-changing, as He comes and lifts burdens and gives us the love, acceptance, and guidance that we need.

Exodus 19:19b (TLB) ‘Moses spoke and God thundered His reply.’

Exodus 19:20‘So the Lord came down upon the top of Mount Sinai and called Moses up to the top of the mountain, and Moses ascended to God.’

This is perhaps the best definition of a meeting with God. It reminds me of a great scripture: James 4:8‘Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.’

Can you imagine spending time in the very presence of God? Imagine being shut off from all outside distraction, no TV, no social media, no responsibilities, just God, and you with God. Perhaps He has a Divine Appointment with you? These sacred moments can happen occasionally, and on an on-going basis. As we develop our relationship with Him, He will come to us, and this wonderful aspect of our relationship can become a living, daily, reality in our lives. We can know the pleasure of this secret place and these sacred moments between us and the ‘Lover of our Souls’. 

MEETING WITH GOD CHANGES US.

Exodus 34:29 ‘When Moses came down from Mount Sinai…, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the LORD.’

Moses had been speaking with the Lord. The purpose of meeting with God is to talk to the Lord and know that He hears us, and for us to hear what He wants to say. This is life-changing experience and lifestyle. Some years ago, I heard a song that touched my heart. It spoke about how we need interaction with God, and we need to hear His direction and word to us. One word from the Lord, coming out of our relationship with Him, can change everything. Here is the song:

WE NEED A WORD FROM THE LORD by Vickie Winans
We don’t need another political uprising
We don’t need another conqueror on the scene
What we need is a special word, that will bond within our hearts
And give us direction from above

We need a word from the Lord
A word from the Lord
Just one word from the Lord
Will move (or remove) all the doubts
And cause the sun to shine
And give peace of mind
Oh, Speak Lord, speak…

We can come to God angry, desperate, disturbed and concerned and we can leave happy, purposeful, free from doubt, filled with peace of mind and heart, and the sun can shine again in our hearts and lives. When Moses came down from the mountain, there was something physically different about him. He had been changed by the experience, and the skin on his face was shining. People were even afraid to come near him. His countenance had changed and that made others uncomfortable.

Exodus 34:30‘…his (Moses) face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him.’

Exodus 34:33‘When Moses finished speaking to them, he put a veil over his face.’

Meeting with God changes us! 

WHO MAY MEET WITH GOD?
Perhaps you are asking the question: ‘Is this a possibility for me, or is it reserved for some special person?’ The truth is that this type of relationship with God is available to all His sons and daughters. As a child of God, it can be your joy and privilege. The key is, pure hearts, clean hands, right living and a longing or a desire to enter into this type of heavenly relationship with your living God.

Psalm 24:3-5‘Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God their Saviour.’
You see, Jesus is the way to this intimate and special meeting with God.

John 10:27‘My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.’

Ephesians 2:18‘Now all of us can come to the Father through the same Holy Spirit because of what Christ has done for us.’

All of us, children of God, can come to the Father.

Hebrews 4:16‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

Its for you, my friend. Do not settle for anything less.
