There is a very special place that I found that changed my whole life. A place that I can ran into. A place of peace and love, even when the world is dark and the situations around me are difficult to understand. It is in my Abba Father’s heart. It is called – ‘In His presence’. That is where our Father wants us all to live and have our being. As I open my eyes in the morning, I am one with Him. Our spiritual senses never sleep and are always aware that He is with us. That alone is enough to give me peace and hope for whatever I have to face every day. As I live in His presence, my eyes and ears of my heart are constantly opened to receive the words that He speaks through Holy Spirit. This leads me gently into a path of obedience – knowing Yeshua is with me and He leads my steps.
My journey living with Aldo after a brain injury helped me a lot to acknowledge the unseen in my everyday life. For him it is not practicing the presence of God. No, for him it is living in the presence. He cannot do what all of us do, so his life is very small and simple. But he loves to read the Word, just loving God and spending time with Him, which makes his spirit very sensitive for the leading of Holy Spirit. He experiences the motives behind people’s actions more real than their actions itself. It is only because of his spiritual senses that are trained by spending time in His presence. Yes, and with his injury I believe he is more aware of what is going on in the spirit realm. Maybe that is why he encourages me to see through the eyes of my heart to understand our everyday challenges and battles. We need discernment in the hour that we live in. The Word says that even the elect will be deceived. Many people are being used by Satan, and they don’t even know it. How will you know the motives of people’s hearts if we live in the flesh – if we only see through the flesh??
It is all through Holy Spirit - knowing that we are carriers of Holy Spirit, and therefore we acknowledge that God is always with us – teaching us. The supernatural world (with Holy Spirit, angels, demons, spiritual warfare, negative power, healing power) is less real for most people than the world we behold with our natural senses.
I read in 2 Corinthians 4:18 what Paul said, “We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal”.
We have to live in this truth - where we know that we know - that God is with us! When we live in this place (truth), we will experience daily the miracle of seeing by faith. That means that I will see with the eyes of my heart. I am no longer moved by what I see in the flesh.
We need to learn how to abide in the presence of God. Not just in and out, but abide! This is the place where I live in faith, where faith arises. I have learned to make time to set my mind on Christ and Him alone. These times alone with Him is wonderful to teach your mind to stay focused, to see and hear His voice. But we have to set time for seeking God every day. These times are the best times of my every day. Times where I am alone, just turning my focus unto Him, and telling Him how much I love Him, sharing my heart, and just behold Him. And as I behold Him – His love is poured out for us to drink and drink! Always a good idea to take your Bible with. Reading the Word is a wonderful way of filling your heart with truth. In His presence you will be changed. As you communicate with your Creator, you are changed. Never ever will we spend time with Him and not exchange more of us for more of Him.
Every word that we speak has a frequency. Frequencies can create and frequencies can destroy. The more we spend time with God in His presence, the more we will become carriers of light. We will carry a vibration of life. Our words will be words of life and not death. Words are frequencies that produce life or death. This is how Moses came out of the presence of YHVH with his face shining with the Glory of God. When you enter into the presence of many people you feel the vibrations of hate, anger, bitterness, jealousy, etc. These create an atmosphere of darkness.
Proverbs 18:21 “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit”.
The more we spend time in the world with its lusts of the flesh, feeding our hungry desires with what the world offers, the more we will become carriers of darkness. Demons will latch onto you. They will use you to do their work. You will carry a frequency of death. The next is you will carry the fruit of darkness – because a tree is known by its fruits. Sometimes we can carry the epigenetic markers of our forefathers that bring forth death – and then in His presence He will lead you into repentance. His love and kindness leads us into repentance. In His presence we can see through His eyes. Then alone we see truth!
‘In Him’ is a position of worship, where my life is completely consecrated unto Him alone. This is an attitude, a place of surrender that I walk in every day – I call it the school of the Spirit. ‘In Him’ - I learn His ways, His thoughts, and I grow up and become more mature every day. The more I die, the more I understand. I start seeing things through His eyes. We become faithful unto Him, just because we love Him. ‘In Him’ we renew our minds and He teaches us to cast down every vain imagination and lie of the enemy.
The beauty of what really happens to us is – we become mature in Him. And as we mature , our spiritual capacity increase. Our capacity to love increase, to forgive increase – to give increase! Our understanding of how the spirit realm works, grows, and we become more and more humble as we grow closer to Him. In a place of humility, we give Him all the honour, we give Him all the praise, as we thank Him that we can expand our intimate knowledge of our Creator and deepen our faith ‘in Him’.
My dear friend, keep on seeking God YHVH. ‘In Him’ is all we need.
Seek Him – He will be found by you. (1 Chron 28:9)
Love to you all.
