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”.

Put your plans in God’s hands

Most of us tend to make plans in the beginning of the year, and that is good. But some people just let God out of their plans. We start planning every month, expectantly waiting that every goal could be achieved as planned. Our God is one of planning and He makes the bests plans. Why not take the first step this of putting all of our planning in God's hands instead? We are starting the year and we still have time to do it.

Why not take the first step this of putting all of our planning in God’s hands instead? We are starting the year and we still have time to do it.

How we can put our plans in God’s hands?

  • Praying: presenting in prayer every plan or goal we have in mind is the best way to do it. Asking for His will to be manifested in them. Even, asking for His approval.
  • Guided by the Word: we have the best book full with wisdom, where God speak, teaches and guide us in every detail of our lives.

There are plenty of bible verses that give us confidence about this practice:

  • May He grant you your heart’s desire And fulfill all your plans.
    PSALM 20:4 AMP
  • ~‘For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord , ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.
    JEREMIAH 29:11 AMP
  • A man’s mind plans his way [as he journeys through life], But the Lord directs his steps and establishes them.
    PROVERBS 16:9 AMP

How obedience will lead you to a victory

I believe that one of the things we can learn from our childhood is to be obedient to our parents and follow instructions. At the same time, two things are totally difficult to do, but they are possible to achieve if we propose it. Throughout my life I have been obedient and disobedient, I have followed instructions and I have not followed instructions. We’ve all done it, right?

How obedience will lead you to a victory

Making the right decision to be obedient and follow God’s instructions will lead to great victories. In the Bible there is a story (one of my favorites) in which God clearly shows that He does give instructions that can lead us to secure victory.

In chapter 6 of the book of Joshua, we see how God leads his people to conquer Jericho. A walled city, which without the help and guidance of God could not have been conquered for sure!

God gives clear and very specific instructions to Joshua on how to conquer this city. You can read all the details here. One of the instructions given by God to Joshua was:

“You shall not shout [the battle cry] nor let your voice be heard nor let a word come out of your mouth, until the day I tell you to shout. Then you shall shout!”

That was a moment of waiting. It was a clear instruction to make no noise until notified. It was part of the plan. And to fail or disobey in this instruction of God could cost them the conquest of a city, which God said that he had given this city into their hands.

How many times have we waited on God, obediently following his instructions? Honestly, I know I’ve lost battles for not waiting. I’ve lost battles for not following the instructions.

Is it impatience? Will it be despair? Do we want to take control? Will we have no faith? Do we not trust in God’s plan?

None of them are excuses for not being obedient, when we know that in obedience there is blessing. If we know that God has given us something in our hands, and tells us to follow some instructions, we must follow them in order to obtain what He promised to us.

Are you in the moment of waiting on the Lord? Is God asking you to do something while you wait? Are you being obedient?
