Oh Lord! I enjoyed two points that really stuck out to me and that go together.
First, God doesn’t need anything from us and He doesn’t want us to do anything for Him, He just wants us to stay in His presence.
Exodus 24:12 “And Jehovah said to Moses, Come up to Me at the top of the mountain, and be there;…”
This phrase “AND BE THERE” is so enjoyable! God wants us at the top of the mountain, not to perform a ritual, or to act good, to confess, or DO ANYTHING; He just wants us to BE THERE.
Second, the Lord is moving on the earth! We need to realize that the Lord is always moving on the earth, gaining more ground, and gaining more from us. We need to realize that, if we are young people, we have a very important role in God’s plan. We aren’t just here to maintain what the previous generation has built up, but we need to go further!
When we put these two points together, we get an important revelation. The previous generation of believers did amazing things with the Lord, but the Lord is not content to stay at the same level, He wants more. What does that mean for us? That means the Lord wants a group of people who are ALWAYS in His presence.
What ever situation we are in, we need to stay in His presence. Even if we are struggling, offended, or going through anything else, we need to ask the Lord to stay with us. He is a person that will stay with us through everything.
Lord! Keep us always in your presence. Don’t ever let us leave!
