Good morning, Lord Jesus. Help me begin this week and my day embraced by my Father, centered in Christ, and filled with the Holy Spirit.
"The Lord said to Moses, 'Cut two tablets of stone like the former ones, and I will write on the tablets the words that were on the former tablets, which you broke. Be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai and present yourself there to Me, on the top of the mountain.... So Moses cut two tablets of stone like the former ones; and he rose early in the morning and went up on Mount Sinai, as the Lord commanded him, and took in his hand the two tablets of stone. The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name, 'The Lord (YHWH)'" (Exodus 34:1-5).
O Lord, my God—Yahweh,Great I AM, Abba Father--I want to "be ready in the morning," this morning, in my time spent in prayer to come up to the mountain of Your Presence. In the communion of my heart in worship and prayer, please touch Your finger to the tablet of my heart and write Your will for my day I will journey along with you.
When Moses came down from the mountain, "the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God" (Exodus 34:24). And now through Jesus resurrection and the giving of His Holy Spirit, I never have to come down from the mountain or out of Your Presence (2 Corinthians 3:6; Luke 22:20). By Your great mercy and loving grace, I can be always ready, always available, always waiting on You and welcoming You, always embracing You and Your Presence with me--here in communion with my spirit, shining with the light of Your glory through my heart and the smile on my face. "For it is the God who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness,' who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ" (2 Corinthians 4:6). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
My family, I pray through prayer you intentionally open your heart so it is always ready for the Presence of God, always available for His presence to fill your soul and flow through your life every day, in Jesus' name! Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friends!
