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.

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.
