STAND IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD by Patrick Lumbroso |
Psalms 1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
This is a day we will all face--the day when the books are opened and a true account is given for everything we’ve done and said. No more hiding; playing games is done and over with. There is no more pretending, no more bribing, begging, whining, or cajoling. The time for working things out using our favorite excuses and alibis is over; this is the day of the great accounting. What’s truly dreadful is that the game can stop at any time for any of us; we cannot count on tomorrow.
In that day, those of us who have not had our priorities straight, who have not meditated on the Word, soaked our roots deeply in the moisture brought us by the river of life, we will not have the spiritual conviction to stand in the brightness of God’s presence.
Whereas those of us who have faithfully lived off the spiritual nutrients offered by the River of Life, those of us who regularly sat at Jesus’ feet like Mary, we will be able to stand with Moses on the Mount of the congregation and hear the voice of Jesus say, well done , thou good and faithful servant;. . . enter thou into the joy of thy Lord (Matthew 25:21) . We will enter without fear, with Jesus through the veil, and into the Holy of Holies. We will enjoy the presence of our God whom we know has been with us day by day. What a day that will be!
Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
