Today, we don’t have to be concerned in the same way as David (was after He Killed Bathseba’s Husband, Uriah) because we have no fear that the Lord will leave us. God loves us and He has promised that He will never leave nor forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5) But sometimes, we take things for granted. We forget to cultivate His presence. Sometimes, we forget to talk to Him until we come to church on Sunday, almost like, “Hello, Lord!”
When you love someone, you value his presence. You long for it. You will cultivate it and be conscious of it because to you, it is precious! It’s one thing to know theoretically that the Lord never leaves nor forsakes you, but another thing to cultivate His presence and show Him that you believe it.
The Lord is jealous for your presence. He loves you. He wants to have a personal relationship with you. He’s not a respecter of persons, but He’s a respecter of those who respect Him and value His presence. He Himself is your healing, your provision and your wisdom. So the more you honor His presence, the more you will see Him manifest in glory!
When my daughter Jessica was just a baby, there were times when she had a fever and would be crying at night. I would lay my hands on her a number of times, pray, rebuke… all the formulas I know, but nothing worked. But whenever I stopped seeking the healing and started seeking the Healer, things changed! It’s when my focus was no longer on my child, and Jesus became bigger in my consciousness than her sickness, that the results came.
Seek the Lord’s presence! He is Jehovah-Rapha. He Himself is healing. There is healing in His presence!
