This question… “How do you enter God’s presence?”, is so beautiful and has been asked of me many times lately. The answer from God’s Word is so refreshing…
1. Be still. Get quiet to allow Him to lead you.
Ps 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Ps 23 You lead me to streams of peaceful water, and you refresh my life… You are with me… Your kindness and love will always be with me each day of my life, and I will live forever in your house, Lord.
2. Enter His gates by giving thanks, giving praise to Him, singing for joy!
Psalm 100:1,2,4 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs… Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
(Helpful hint: Try this… Get alone somewhere quiet. Start by listing 3 things you are thankful for. Say ‘thank you’ to God. “Thank you God for…”)
Be still and know that God is God and… you are not.
This truth is the best thing you can fully embrace.
He holds the world together, not you. 🙂
What He wants to do in and through you is far greater – if you trust Him – than if you try to control and hold your world together.
I want to bless you with a video invitation from one of my online mentors.
Come away from rush and hurry…
You and I are invited to do life not out of an anxious to-do list,
but out of a place of rest and peace…
Find a quiet place,
enjoy the peaceful music,
the words and questions to stir your heart and mind…
