There Is Peace In My Presence

Posted by tmoney80 on December 15, 2008

…are the words I heard from that “still small voice”  in the early morning the other day.  God was up early and so was I. Uncharacteristic for me, but not for God. Even though I basically despise the morning there is something unique about it, especially in this day in age, when the “noise” begins at 8:00am and doesn’t end until you go to bed.  It was about 6am on this morning, it was still dark out and most people are either still sleeping or hitting the snooze for the first time. I was at the office sitting in the “creative arts” room waiting for 8:30 to come around so I could start work…I had to drop Jaclyn off at work early and that is why I was up. As I sat in the massage chair, I really tried to “be still” before God, not physically, since the electronic massage chair was making my body move, but spiritually and mentally. And as hard as it is to mentally “be still”, it actually happened. Weeks of not hearing from God were finally over when out of nowhere I heard softly and clearly…”there is peace in My presence”. I heard it again and again. I didn’t keep an exact count, but I probably heard it 5 or 6 times. There is something about hearing a direct word from the Lord that completely changes you. I can’t explain exactly what the change is, but I know that it is awesome. I guess it can be explained as the moment when your spirit and the spirit of God commune and you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God is alive, real and is with you and powerful. When this happened the weight of the world was lifted from my shoulders, the cares and worries of my present state were gone, and my heart was ministered to. Nothing else mattered and I knew, that I knew, that I knew that God was for me and was going to take care of me and Jaclyn. Ever since that day, I have not waivered and I have worked to stay in His presence. I remain at peace and now can testify that there truly is peace in His presence.
