I started this Monday morning like most, my mind reliving the weekend events while at the same time reviving up for the coming week. People, places and things all racing through my mind. That’s when I went before the Lord for my daily meditation. Lord help me! Lord help my mind to stop. And so, the Holy Spirit reminded me of Job 1:6: “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord.” God’s answer to me was that I was to present myself before the Lord.
Presenting yourself before the Lord, is submitting yourself to Him. You lay down your agenda so that you can receive His. I desire only to be in His presence. Just being in His presence is enough. Just being in His presence is everything. What transpires by presenting yourself before the Lord is that you receive of His presence. His love. His kindness. His goodness. His love. I am Your servant Lord Jesus. Yes, I desire to do what you would have me to do. But more importantly, I have a desperate need to be who you would have me to be.
The Lord wants to birth again in me the desire to serve others. But, more importantly the Lord wants to transform me into His servant. Who you are is more important that what you do.
