In His Presence

Presence.  Do you desire His Presence?

This morning I was drawn to Psalm 17 – a Psalm of Protection.  But what really stood out for me was found in verse 15:

“But I will see your face in righteousness; when I awake, I will be satisfied in your presence.”

Are you satisfied in His Presence?

There is a battle today.  A battle to keep us from His Presence.

Why would the enemy fight so hard to keep us away from His Presence?

I’m a thinking it keeps us locked away in fear – in hatred – in unbelief.

As I sat pondering those words this morning, the Lord encouraged me to think of an old hymn that I sang as a child.  I had to ask him to help me remember – and he did!

“In his presence daily live.”  

Does that ring a bell for you?

I looked it up and found the hymn: All to Jesus I Surrender

We sang those words – some still sing those words.  I will ever love and trust him, in his presence daily live.

Today, I leave that old hymn for you to listen to – may it bring back memories of the first days that you learned how to love him and trust him – when you truly desired to be in his presence.  There are two versions to choose from – one is updated and the other is an older version.  Enjoy!

I Surrender All

All to Jesus I Surrender
