When God calls you to His presence

Have you ever felt how God calls you to be in His presence? That moment when you have to let everything you are doing and run to God? The presence of God is with those who calls upon Him, with those who seek Him. His presence is in us, with us and around us. But, there are moments that He only wants from us to give all the attention to Him. That is when God calls you to His presence.

Have you ever felt how God calls you to be in His presence? That moment when you have to let everything you are doing and run to God?

The presence of God is with those who calls upon Him, with those who seek Him. His presence is in us, with us and around us. But, there are moments that He only wants from us to give all the attention to Him. That is when God calls you to His presence.

In the book of Exodus, we know story of Moses (Exodus 3). The one who was called by God to make his people free from slavery. That was a great commission or task that started in the presence of God. Let’s see!

Now Moses was keeping the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian; and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. (AMP)

Moses was first working for his father in law, keeping the flock, leading the flock… then something amazing happened to him.

The Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing flame of fire from the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush was on fire, yet is was not consumed. (AMP)


The Lord appeared to him as fire! God caught his attention in such a way that he had to stop what he was doing to focus all his attention on the presence of God. Sometimes God must do something similar with us. Because we are consumed with so many things, that sometimes we forget to go to the Father who certainly wait for us.

Immediately Moses said and acted quickly:

I must turn away [from the flock] to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!”. And he said, “Here I am”. (AMP)


What teaching do we get from this encounter of God with Moses?

God is the one who calls us, gives us purpose, enables us to fulfill the call. All this in His presence. We cannot achieve it, by having multiples tasks and leaving aside the presence of God when He calls us to be alone with Him.


When you know and you feel that God is calling you, say to Him “HERE I AM”.

How to replace anxiety with peace.

Anxiety is a feeling and it's very common in our nature. However, anxiety can be dangerous if it's not treated correctly. There are many options in the world like psychologist or psychiatrists many people look for help. Looking for help is the right thing to do, but we must seek guidance and help in the word of God. In the bible and in our relationship with God we can find the solution to this problem. Let's learn a little about how to replace anxiety with peace.

There are many options in the world like psychologist or psychiatrists many people look for help. Looking for help is the right thing to do, but we must seek guidance and help in the word of God. In the bible and in our relationship with God we can find the solution to this problem. Let’s learn a little about how to replace anxiety with peace.

The word of God says in Philipians 4:6

Do not be anxious or worried about ANYTHING,

Anxiety is the equivalent of not trusting God. And in this verse we are called to not be worried about any thing. Nothing should be worrying us. Now, all the circumstances around us can lead us to that state if we don’t take care of it. When Paul says “anything” he means nothing without restrictions, no possibilities, no spaces, NOTHING!

Then, how we can replace or exchange the anxiety that invades us sometimes with a state of peace? The bible says that it is possible and give us a way. Philippians 4:6 says again:

Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.
PHILIPPIANS 4:6 AMP

How we do it?

We come to presence of God with prayer (that is our way of communicating with God, vital part of our relationship with Him). We express our petitions accompanied of thanksgiving (that is our way of asking God for His will to be done in us). Then, we make our requests known to God in a specific way.

All of this is part of an active life of prayer, we speak… We express… We make requests… We give thanks. This provides to us an outlet for anxiety. We liberated ourselves, we left the heavy burden that from the beginning we should not have carried. And instead of this, we receive peace that surpasses everything. Even if you are in the middle of the storm.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

May this be a way for all us who are in Christ to replace anxiety with the marvelous peace that ONLY God gives us.

Lead me in the Everlasting Way

Its 3:06 am and while I should be sleeping, I am here meditating in God’s word. Have you been talking to God recently? You know, sometimes the circumstances around us drained us, misleading us to other places rather than God’s presence. The way of the Lord is best, the guidance and lead of God in our lives is necessary. And, for that there must be a relationship with Him.

More than writing a post about a review, or about things I like, or about a few bible verses we should read, I’m here writing about some encouragement for you, because I have been encouraged by Him. Behind every blog there is a human being writing content to uplift others. That person also need some lifting up too.

While I was reading the book of Psalms I went directly to Psalms 139. A Psalm of David about God’s omniscience and omnipresence. It’s a powerful psalm about how God formed us, knows us, cares about us and lead us in the right path, because He already knows everything.

O Lord , you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up [my entire life, everything I do]; You understand my thought from afar.
PSALM 139:1‭-‬2 AMP

Knowing and internalizing that God knows everything about gives me peace. Gives me rest. Gives me a real and clear understanding about God’s character. I know that if you read this Psalm right now, you will receive peace. And even, your thoughts about yourself can change drastically. Because if there still a small amount of doubt about our existence and purpose in this life, clearly and powerfully that doubt will go away.

For You formed my innermost parts; You knit me [together] in my mother’s womb.
PSALM 139:13 AMP

If you need to rest, seek God. If you need answers, seek God. If you need guidance, seek God. If you need Him to take the lead in your life once and for all, seek God. Let God lead you in His ways, His everlasting way as David asked Him. All you have to do is seek, ask, knock and believe

The bible, the book that contains the Word of God, the alive and effective Word for all of us, gives us 5 bible verses that will help us rest, receive new strengths and continue the journey. HERE there are 5 bible verses that you and I must remember this Christmas.

1. I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose–I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]
PHILIPPIANS 4:13 AMP

2. He gives strength to the weary, And to him who has no might He increases power.
ISAIAH 40:29 AMP

3. ‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’
ISAIAH 41:10 AMP

4. Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence].
1 CHRONICLES 16:11 AMP

5. The Lord is my strength and my [impenetrable] shield; My heart trusts [with unwavering confidence] in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I shall thank Him and praise Him.

There is no better place we can be this holiday season than in the presence of God. Seeking his strength, his guidance, resting in Him and praising his name. Christmas time is an amazing time, but the time with God is vital to really enjoy the season.

Look for his face, seek him always, praise him every moment!
