Lamentations 3:22-23 “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.

Every morning I wake up with a sense of expectation of what is on the Lords heart and mind. Sometimes it is a corrective word, sometimes it is a creative word. Today its about the value of His presence and how that relates to personal guidance. When God gives an unusually strong assurance, there will arise a circumstance that calls for the strength of that assurance to have the courage to stand still in the will of God. If God has consciously led you to a place for ministry, you must not leave unless and until you are led consciously in equal or greater strength of witness to a new place. If we are led to a place, we must be led by His presence from that place to a new place or we are simply moving ourselves out of the will of God. Disobedience is the rejection of the sovereignty and throne rights of God in our life. The reality of knowing Gods will is a matter of the heart much more than it is a matter of the head and it comes into focus as we remain in His presence.

John 14:21 “He that has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

The word “manifest” in the Greek is so powerful as it means nothing less than a manifestation of the Lord that is perceivable by our physical senses. The Lord is saying, “I will make myself real to you in such a way that you know that you know its me”.
