LIVING IN HIS PRESENCE
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the almighty. Psalm 91:1
The Spirit of God dwells in those who are born again and when we dwell in the secret place of the Most High we live in His presence. The secret place is that intimate quiet time alone with God in His presence communing in the Spirit and receiving of His divine revelation and inspiration that sustains us.
There was once a man who served in a monastery in France named Brother Lawrence who learned to practice living in the very presence of God. Whatever he did, whether washing dishes or doing menial chores he lived in God's presence. We can do the same if we will ignore the noise and distraction of the world and concentrate on setting our minds on heavenly things.
I would encourage you to get Brother Lawrence's book of conversations, quotes and struggles that will allow you to grow in strength and faith. We gave this book out to our ladies in the programs I directed for years and it was one of their greatest tools in learning to live in His presence.
"We ought not to be weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed." Brother Lawrence, "The Practice of the Presence of God."
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
