When humanity drifts away from the very presence he was created to enjoy an intimate relationship with his source of reality, he wanders in restlessness.
“So Cain went away from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod [wandering], east of Eden.” Genesis 4:16 AMPC
Will COVID-19 draw us back to the Eden of God presence? A perfect paradise, where the spirit of regenerated men dances in the harmonic melodies of the whispers of a loving Father. I sense this deep beckoning in the spirit realm. An invitation of the Spirit of the creator for mankind to return to the original place of sacred communion with the Father. It is in this realm of intimacy you and I find authentic power and strength to live the quality life.
Cain represents a generation that wanders away from the perfect plan, the perfect place, and the perfect presence in Elohim, devoid of his glory. In God’s ultimate plan we were to be a people of His presence for the sheer purpose of reproducing the nature of God for His glory, in all of our endeavours. In His presence is the fullness of joy, and at his right hand of administration, we find eternal pleasures to overrule the dictates of the kingdom of darkness.
The multifaceted presence of the Lord can be actualized in our lives today, through a deep longing for the old pathway of staying consistently and intimately in the presence of God through heartfelt prayers and partnership with the Holy Spirit, else we wander perpetually in fear and despair, far away from where rare peace is supplied unabated.
There is a mystical river which flows from God’s presence and we find deep satisfaction within our souls when we are near, our cups are drawn in, drinking to our fill. Regardless of the inconsistencies around us our cups shall not run dry. The psalmist speaks about this river…
“There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early [at the dawn of the morning].” Psalm 46:4-5 AMPC
Today, your Heavenly Father is inviting you and I to journey back to the streams of the spiritual river of his presence, the secret place of God, to rededicate ourselves through the spiritual medium of prayer, and fellowship in the spirit. The world has nothing to offer us. This pandemic has proven to us that all of the little idols we have depended on over the years were an illusion, but the reality is found only in the time we invest in His presence.
The multifaceted presence of God when encountered has the potency of raising ordinary men and women to become an end-time army of God who will exercise dominion and power over the rule of Satan. Do you want to become a true expression of the mystery of the vast possibilities of God in this life, in the midst of the odds? Let’s humbly pray to the Lord 👇🏾 today in the expectation that he will revive our spirits so we can return to him, draped with passion ❤️
Dear Father God,
I have wandered far from you
My heart is empty, my mind is
Filled with earthy pleasures, and I
Have no desire in me to seek you
or to know you intimately as my Lord
I have slipped far away from you
but I trust you are mighty to save when we call
From the deepest depths of our wanderings
You’re my salvation, Lord Jesus. I sincerely
ask you to save me from myself:
Help me mortify my flesh, and I will die completely from the pleasures of this life.
I want to be captivated by your presence
Yes, I want to be completely yours;
And my entire existence with you, and you alone
Investing my time and my energies
By the virtue of the Holy Spirit Set my soul free from the chains of Of a prayer-lessness life, to be a lover of all you have to offer
I rededicate my life to you
I rededicate my heart for prayer
I dedicate my heart for revelation
I dedicate my time for the word
I want to be a deposit of heaven
I want to become a pursuer of your
Presence, and a true expression of
Your power and dominion on this side of life, so help me Lord, in Jesus mighty name I pray.
