|Where do you go to meet with the Lord? Moses and the Israelites had the Tent of Meeting — a special place where they would go specifically to encounter God. On the contrary, David seemed to have a knack for enjoying the presence of Jesus wherever he was. He called out His Name at night on his bed and met with Him formally in the courts of the tabernacle. No matter where, the man after God’s own heart knew how to find His Savior.
Then there was Jesus Himself. The Lord often slipped away to find solace in the presence of His Father. Interestingly, It seems that Christ preferred to be outdoors while in His Father’s presence, often retreating to mountaintops and gardens to have conversations with Him in prayer. No matter where or how they did it, they made one thing clear — that being in God’s presence is crucial to our lives as people!
Friend, you are made to meet with Jesus! Whether it’s in your car, the shower, or on a favorite park bench, spending time in the presence of the Lord sets you free from the worries of daily life. He doesn’t take all your troubles away, but when you look to Him, He fills your soul with the grace, wisdom, and peace you need to deal with them. When you encounter your Heavenly Father on a regular basis and keep your eyes fixed on His sufficiency, you become more relaxed and less fearful. As you meet with the Lord in your own tent, wherever it is, you emerge full of His Spirit, glowing with His radiance, and ready to take His love and power to the world.
