A Moment with God
Early this morning I was overwhelmed with a sense of the presence of God as I beheld a full golden moon turn to orange, lighting up the lake in front of our home. It seemed as though I could reach out and touch it. Breathing in the beauty of the scene I felt the nearness of our God. God is in His heaven; all is well! Standing on the porch with my cup of coffee, I watched as the enormous orange globe disappeared behind the trees.
Going to my computer I sat down to write to you, and I believe that we all need a refreshing from the Throne of God. With so much to pray about today, I encourage you to take time out for fellowship, praising and worshiping our God. This time of worship will refresh and strengthen you. Yes, we must continue interceding for our world situation – the Middle East, the president and his advisers, our allies, and our troops. Praise God for the seven POW’s who are on their way back home. Resist fear, and remember God is on His Throne and all is well!
During quiet moments with God I often play music tapes or CD’s. Music creates an atmosphere of worship, a holy sanctuary where you can flow with the Holy Spirit. From this place of worship, God reveals truths that make us free, which enables us to change wrong attitudes and behaviors. It is out of this worship that true intercession is released. One of my favorite CD’s is “Worship” by Lisa Ison.
Lisa Ison, a dear friend, is a singer, songwriter, dramatist, and minister of the Word. On television, in theater, on radio and in churches, Lisa has ministered across the United States and abroad. God’s anointing through Lisa inspires all who see and hear her as she brings the gospel of Jesus Christ alive through music, drama and personal testimony.
You can hear Lisa’s music, read her “Heartstrings from Lisa…” and order your very own Worship CD at www.lisaison.com.
May you be blessed and strengthened in your inner most being by the Holy Spirit.
Loving in Jesus’ Name,
Your Prayer Partner
