The Present of His Presence: “Into the Word” Week 24

Last night, we attended the Saturday evening services at our church.  At the close of the sermon, the speaker provided an opportunity for those who had never made a profession of faith in Christ as their personal Savior to come forward and pray what we Christians call “the Sinner’s Prayer,” confessing Him as Lord.  I always am so overjoyed to see folks come forward because I know what a gift they are about to receive — the gift of His presence in their lives.  He never leaves us not forsakes us.

This week, as I was digging “Into the Word,” I came across a verse that perfectly highlights this gift:

For the Lord your God is living among you.

He is a Mighty Savior.

He will take delight in you with gladness.

With His love, He will calm all your fears.

He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.

Zephaniah 3:17

Isn’t that a wonderful promise?  I am so thankful for the present of His presence.  My ever-present God is able to see me through any situation.  What peace that provides to my weary soul!

Q4U:  How have you experienced the present of His presence during a dark season? 

Every Monday we will be working our way through Anne Graham Lotz’s 52-week study “Into the Word.”    Hop on over to the 3dLessons4Life Blog Facebook Page to join us as we dig into God’s Word together.
