Then David danced before the Lord with all his might; 2 Sam. 6:14 (NKJV) With all his might is, physical power or whatever is humanely possible. Oh the power and energy we receive by just davidbeing in the presence of God.

It’s personal today so imagine ourselves surrounded by the glory of God and how much mental and physical might that requires? And standing there, would we dance and sing hallelujah praising the one who gave it all for our salvation or would we just be still, in awe of the one who created us in His own image? Or would we fall to our knees while crying out like “the sound of many waters,” thank you.

Can our finite minds imagine such a moment in the very presence of the one who made a way possible for His faithful who endured and journeyed that narrow road to live throughout eternity in His kingdom.

My friends let’s focus our attention standing before God, maybe as we prepare to sit at the banquet table for the redeemed, or maybe  we are “in the middle of the great street of the city, nearjoy the river, where the tree of life stands……” Rev.22:2 (NIV)

Like David who was a “Man after God’s own Heart,” we must constantly be in the presence of the Almighty in His word and on our knees or out on the front lines of the battle field witnessing and telling others “there are blessings you cannot receive till you know Him in His fullness and believe; You’re the one to profit when you say “I am going to walk with Jesus all the way.”

My friends, “blessed is the man [or woman] that walketh not the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night….” Ps. 1:1-2 (KJV)

imgresAnd in his law doth he meditate day and night, meaning our hearts must never leave His Presence. His law is based on selfless, sacrificial, and unconditional love. The type of love a selfless Father has, who would sacrifice His only begotten Son and a Son who was willing to die for wretched sinners like you and I.

There was no limit on what was done for our Salvation and that is what grace is all about unearned and undeserved favor, which is “mercy instead of judgment, loving kindness instead of wrath,” with no limits if we believe.

In addition how do we respond? And what are we willing to do to be in the presence of such love? And once we are there are we willing to stay until we hereimgres Him speak saying “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”

My friends, if you have not figured out how to live, and dance in the Presence of God while on this earth, how will you be able to do it in His kingdom? Or if you are not willing to bear youe cross on this earth how can you bear a crown in his kingdom. “no cross no crown?”

Because in His presence, the warfare against self and the struggles we face each day will become His battle. but we must first surrender our will to the will of God and then we will remain forever in His presence throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.


Every excuse we may give as the reason we cannot serve Christ, was challenged and answered at Calvary.
