GOD WANTS US TO STAND IN HIM

I just love this phrase: ‘A place where you may stand…’ Years ago, I had the privilege of travelling to Italy. We were able to see some of the great church buildings and enjoy their splendor and magnificence. We came to one building where there was a long flight of wooden stairs going up from the entrance foyer. People were crawling up and down the stairs, praying, crying and pleading with God. They would often stop on a particular step and weep.

IN THE CLEFT OF THE ROCK

As the Lord began to speak to Moses He tells him, or reminds him, of a place where there was the possibility of knowing the closeness of God. It may have been a place where Moses had often gone to pray or speak with God – the scripture does not give us exact clarity on the location. Perhaps it was a place that Moses was familiar with.

GOD’S HAND INFLUENCES OUR LIVES & OUR CIRCUMSTANCES

Look at this link: God’s hand was on the people – they had a strong desire to follow the word of the Lord. If we will allow God’s hand to work in our lives, we too will have a desire to follow what God tells us to do. The hand of the Lord gives us favor.

THE HAND OF GOD IS AN OPEN HAND

Years ago there used to be a bank that had a catch phrase ‘YOUR HELPING HAND FOR LIFE!’ I am not sure which bank it was. The bank has gone but the truth of the phrase, as it applies to God, lives on. God’s hand is YOUR HELPING HAND FOR LIFE! God’s hand is open, it is not closed. If you see God’s hand as closed I hope that today you will change the way you think!

THE HAND OF GOD

I believe we all desire to know the ‘Hand of God’ in our lives. When we speak about THE HAND OF GOD we are speaking about two things.

1. His involvement in our lives.

2. His physical help and strength to see us through.

THE BLESSING IS CONDITIONAL

There is a conditional aspect to experiencing this blessing. It is the aspect of obedience. It will be worth it if we will choose a life of obedience. The rewards for obedience will be the blessings that God has in His word for us.

THE BLESSINGS (Continued)

6. THE BLESSING OF VICTORY
God wants us to enjoy victory in our lives. Victory over things that would like to get us down or destroy us.

Deuteronomy 28:7 The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.

What enemy is rising up against you? Think of the enemy of discouragement, frustration and despair. This can also include fear, stress, alcohol, drugs, pornography, greed/selfishness and many more.

THE BLESSINGS

Just think of your city, town and your country. God wants to bless our towns our cities and our country. We can know a blessing on the place we call home. This can include your home or the place you call home.

THE BLESSINGS THAT GOD HAS IN STORE FOR US!

God wants to bless us. That is God’s heart towards us. Belonging to God should bring blessing on our lives. The blessing that God wants us to experience is really God’s favour towards us. You and I were meant to share in the blessings that God planned for His people. But is there something that we can do to put ourselves in line to receive and enjoy these blessings? I believe there is and we are going to look at this.

THE LORD IS YOUR KEEPER

How awesome it is to know that we have the Lord Who loves and cares for us.
The Bible tells us that He is our Keeper. A keeper is more than just someone who is just there, it is someone who is interested and has our best interests at heart.
