GOD'S PRESENCE INTO 2022 // JANUARY 7, 2022
Then the Lord said, "There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock. When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand, and you will see my back ... "
God's presence can provide protection we may not even know we needed. He can provide us with a place to stand, helping us to feel safe and secure. In fact, God can make us so stable that when all hell is breaking loose, we'll still be standing.
In addition to his protection, God can make his goodness pass right by us so that we see the results of his presence. If we look at someone and all we see is his back, we've gotta move in his direction to catch him. Today, we won't find God's glory in yesterday (2021), but we can keep pursuing his presence and get up to follow him into our new year.
What about you? Do you want God to put you in a safe place in 2022? Take some time to think about where he's leading in the new year, and write down how might you follow him. You won't see him where you've been but only where you're headed.
