I Need His Tabernacle Presence

dscn0297As God reveals to me daily His Ways and teaches me His Wisdom through His Spirit, His Word and His World, I recognize my absolute need for His Presence. With His Presence there is no challenge I cannot face; nor is there any cause for me to worry–He who rules the Universe and Eternity would dwell within my heart. He can surely equip me to accomplish what He wills for His glory, which I am learning, is always for my good. That He would tabernacle in me is so amazing I will still be wondering throughout eternity at the colors and shapes he has meticulously woven into the very essence of my life.

I need His tabernacle presence at the center of my heart
Drawing me away from selfishness towards worship
Where I find the solid ground on which I can stand
Even as I kneel before the Holy God surrendering my heart.

I need His tabernacle presence in the midst of my soul
Challenging, inspiring and enlightening me towards choices
Consistent and obedient as I choose his path not mine
Even as I bow reverent before the Holy God submitting my whole soul.

I need His tabernacle presence in control of my mind
Directing heavenward my thoughts to be cleansed by His Word
Pure and righteous with His power to stand in every battle
Even as the war rages in me between my enemy and my holy, righteous Lord.

I need His tabernacle presence as the bedrock for my strength
Empowering my worldly body for the service I must give
Seeking willing, open hearts and minds and souls
Even as He has called me out of sin and death to Himself and life and love.

Deuteronomy 6: 5-7

“Listen, Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is One.
Love the LORD your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your strength.
These words that I am giving you today
are to be in your heart.
Repeat them to your children.
Talk about them when you sit in your house
and when you walk along the road,
when you lie down and when you get up.

  2. Dear Mike, Thank you so much for these inspiring words. I needed those this morning. There is a battle raging inside me at this moment and has been there for some time now. Please pray for strength for me to be the Christian I so desperately want to be and who God wants me to be. I will continue to pray for you and Becky. Love in Christ, Dorothy
