Day 21 – Visitation

February 19, 2011

Dear Devoted One,

43 I will meet the people of Israel there, in the place made holy by my glorious presence.

Exodus 29:43 (NLT)

I am excited that I can write to you about a God who wants to come and visit us.  He desires this so much that He moved heaven and earth to ensure that we could have access to His presence. He surrendered His very best (His Son) as an offering to satisfy the debt that keeps you and I from experiencing His closeness. He has commissioned the Holy Spirit to be our personal guide and constant companion so we can learn how to live in His presence. With this in mind, we can settle it in our minds and heart, regarding God’s desire toward us. Ponder on this thought:  God is for us and wants us and is not against us.

8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

Genesis 3:8 (NKJV)

God Himself came to the garden in the cool of the day to have fellowship with man!  What is even more amazing is that He didn’t break fellowship with man when they sinned.  Man broke fellowship with Him; man hid from the presence of the Lord.  Do you know God does not abandon us when we sin; but our sin causes us to abandon what we can have in God!

Will you dare to believe that God in His glory will be revealed to you? If we live under the covering of the offering that Jesus made for our sins, and walk in His righteousness by aligning our hearts with His Word we position ourselves to experience a fellowship with God that releases His glory in our lives.
Let us close with a prayer of praise from the book of Psalms.
Heavenly Father;

1 O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water. 2 I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory. 3 Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you! 4 I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. 5 You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.

Psalms 63:1-5 (NLT)

Maranatha! (Come quickly Lord Jesus!)
