Devotional Behold I Am With You Always
by Marijo Phelps 11/15/2010 / Devotionals
What greater promise was given that God's promise to be with us always? That doesn't mean sometimes, perhaps or maybe it really means always, forever and forever. He will be there with us through our trials and tribulations and through our joys and celebrations, God, the very creator of the universe with you, with me. He will teach us, guide us, encourage us and even give us necessary correction, all in His most incredible love. He is love, His very nature.
And He whispered to my heart:
Again, I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.
Fret not, it is I who accomplishes and who knows which song will bring response in a given life. My children are my instruments, not of discord but of harmony. Allow me to play you for Jesus' glorification and that He might be revealed in the presence of all of you.
The gathering of the Body of Christ is the place for the release of Jesus' healing love. It has a power/energy incomparable, given in divine love to recreate His loveliness in His people and to draw those who don't yet know Him.
"I am there in the midst of you" "Behold I am with you always"
Step out and be bold in that knowledge. I desire to do so much, yet the Body of Christ trembles with uncertainty as if they knew not the serpent was crushed under Jesus' heel. They/you stand upright and alive with Jesus your Lord while the enemy lies defeated beneath your feet. Walk in that certainty. Move in that reality for Jesus' sake and for the freeing of the lost and bound.
My love has greater dimensions than you know, to encompass, encourage, enlighten and enrapture you all.
I know your hearts and your songs of my freedom waiting to be played. Do you not know the battle will soon be over and we are the conquerors/victorers.
Arise in Jesus name. He is the only power. He is the only (valid) love. He alone gives liberty eternal and eternally. Be lifted, armored, fortified with His name and His reality. Selah
Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say." (NKJV)
Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion, For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!" (NIV)
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for Your presence, for speaking to us and for leading us, teaching us help us to be apt learners! Help us to worship you in many wonderful ways practical and lavish. We love You!!! AMEN
