Morning by Morning, May 4 - Always Ready for the Presence of God

Morning by Morning, May 4 - Always Ready for the Presence of God
  
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Help me begin my day embraced by my Father, centered in Christ, and filled with the Holy Spirit.  ...
 
"The Lord said to Moses, 'Cut two tablets of stone like the former ones, and I will write on the tablets the words that were on the former tablets, which you broke. Be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai and present yourself there to Me, on the top of the mountain.... So Moses cut two tablets of stone like the former ones; and he rose early in the morning and went up on Mount Sinai, as the Lord commanded him, and took in his hand the two tablets of stone. The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name, 'The Lord (YHWH)'" (Exodus 34:1-5). 
 
O Lord, my God--Yahweh, Jehovah, Great I AM, Abba Father--I want to "be ready in the morning" to come up to the mountain of Your Presence, here in the communion of my heart in worship and prayer. Touch Your finger to the tablet of my heart and write Your will for my day along the journey of my life into my soul. 
 
When Moses came down from the mountain, "the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God" (Exodus 34:24). And now in the "New Covenant, not of letter but of Spirit" in Christ, I never have to come down from the mountain or out of Your Presence (2 Corinthians 3:6; Luke 22:20). By Your great mercy and loving grace, I can be always ready, always available, always waiting on You and welcoming You, always embracing You and Your Presence with me--here in communion with my spirit, shining with the light of Your glory through my heart and upon the countenance of my face. "For it is the God who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness,' who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ" (2 Corinthians 4:6). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
 
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
 
 
 
 
My Friend, I pray you are always ready for the Presence of God, always available for His manifest Presence to fill your heart and flow through your life every day, in Jesus' name! Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!

Gen 16:13

CSB So she named the LORD who spoke to her: "You are El-roi," for she said, "In this place, have I actually seen the One who sees me?"

NIV She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: "You are the God who sees me," for she said, "I have now seen the One who sees me."

ESV So she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, “You are a God of seeing,” for she said, “Truly here I have seen him who looks after me.”

 

Gen 35:7

NIV There he built an altar, and he called the place El Bethel, because it was there that God revealed Himself to him 

NLT Jacob built an altar there and named the place El-bethel (which means "God of Bethel"), because God had appeared to him there.
