Transforming Presence

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

The Lord’s Presence is the most transformative power in the world. In His presence is the fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11). When he taught us to pray, he said in essence, ask for My Presence – daily.  Today we’ll look at another of the four theme’s Bob Hudson draws from a deeper dive into the Lord’s Prayer.

“Give us this day our daily bread…”                                                                             Matthew 6:11

“Trusting God as our Source: The simple request for God to give us our “daily bread” goes far beyond our need for physical nourishment.  Our “daily bread” is representative of everything that God intends to give us through His presence – all that He provided in the Garden.  Love. Safety, Strength. Worth. Value. Purpose.  This prayer can anchor us in the deep reality that He is our Source.  This is important because our human tendency is to look outside of ourselves – to others and to circumstances – to give us what we need.  Turning our focus to our heavenly Father and acknowledging that He is the Provider of our deepest longings will liberate us from the frustrations and disappointments of expecting situations and other people in our lives to meet our core needs.”

Today, will you welcome transformation? Will you ask for His Presence to fill you – to overflowing with everything you deeply desire – and trust Him to do it?
