Fresh From His Presence
Godís presence is most precious to me. There are not many things in life that is as precious to me as His presence. As I look into the word of God I can see that when anyone came fresh from Godís presence they did awesome things for the Lord. I believe that we should attempt nothing for God except we are fresh from His presence. If we would look into scriptures we can see that God sometimes uses patterns. I mean, He does some things the same way. For example; In the book of Hebrews we are told how God told Moses to build the earthly tabernacle after the pattern of the heavenly tabernacle.{ This is the same Moses that was sent Fresh From Godís Presence to Pharaoh, king of Egypt} Letís look at this at another angle. In the Gospel of Luke we read of the Angel Gabriel. He told Zechariah; ď I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and an sent to speak to you, and to show you these glad tidings.Ē

Gabriel was Fresh From Godís Presence. Whenever I speak for God I should come fresh from His presence. Jesus speaking in the gospel of John said; ď For I have given them the words that You gave Me, and they have received them, and have known surly that I came out from You, and that You did send MeĒ. When Jesus came to earth to minister to humanity He came Fresh From Godís Presence. Do you see the pattern? Look at this. And it came to pass in those days that Jesus went into a mountain to pray, and He continued all night in prayer to God. And when it was day, He chose His disciples. Jesus comes fresh from Godís presence and chooses His disciples. I know that you have read about the calling of Jeremiah, how God told him; ď Say not, I am a child; for you shall go to all that I send you, and whatsoever I command you you shall speak; For I am with you to deliver you. Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth and said, I have put My words in your mouthĒ.

O the miracles that could take place if we would only wait for Godís presence. Jeremiah left fresh from Godís presence with the word of God as fire shut up in his bones. It could happen to you. Did you go to work this morning fresh from Godís presence? Listen! God said to Ezekiel;Ē son of man, stand upon your feet and I will speak to youĒ. And the Spirit entered into Ezekiel when He spoke to him, and set him upon his feet, that he heard Him that did speak. When God send anyone to speak in His name He sends them fresh from His presence. If you are not fresh from Godís presence then you are disqualified from speaking on His behalf.

The Apostle Paul testifying said; ď When I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance; and saw Him saying to me, make haste, and get out quickly of Jerusalem; for they will not receive your testimony concerning Me. And I said, Lord, they know that imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believe on You. And He said to me, depart for I will send you far from here to the GentilesĒ. Have you ever wondered what qualified Paul to speak to the Gentiles? He was fresh from Godís presence. We are told in the book of Exodus that the Glory of God, the Presence of God followed the children of Israel throughout all their journeys. Seeing that God is a God of patterns; should I , a child of God, expect the Glory of God, the presence of God to follow me throughout all my journeys?
