The Powerful Presence of God
Psa 114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
Psa 114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
Psa 114:3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
Psa 114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.
Psa 114:5 What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
Psa 114:6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?
Psa 114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
Psa 114:8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
In this passage we see how God's powerful presence drove the Red Sea into 2 saluting columns of water, sentries guarding the passage of Israel on dry ground safely to the other side.
We witness how Sinai was awash in thunders, lightening, smoke, fire and an earthquake as God descended upon it.
And then, view Jordan as she stops her flow for another dry passage of the children of Israel. Again, God's presence accomplished this marvel.
I wonder what wonder God's mighty presence in us could perform today. Right now, ask the Lord to fill you. Petition His Spirit to give you unction. May the seas of difficulty part before you. May mountains of trouble quake at the presence of God in you!
