Living in The Present


Today is a Gift!

“My presence is My gift to you, says the Spirit of God. I am the Greatest Gift. (Jesus). There is power in My name. Tune yourself in to what lays within. I want you present today to enjoy the gift of this day. I want you alert and awake, aware of My presence.  To enjoy Me. Present, as you enjoy the rest I’ve given you. I want you to experience  My rest.

My prophetic promises will flow out of my love for you.
 I am near, my words are clear, won’t you hear?

Hebrews 4

The Message (MSG)

When the Promises Are Mixed with Faith

1-3 For as long, then, as that promise of resting in him pulls us on to God’s goal for us, we need to be careful that we’re not disqualified. We received the same promises as those people in the wilderness, but the promises didn’t do them a bit of good because they didn’t receive the promises with faith. If we believe, though, we’ll experience that state of resting. But not if we don’t have faith. Remember that God said,

Exasperated, I vowed,     “They’ll never get where they’re going,     never be able to sit down and rest.”

3-7 God made that vow, even though he’d finished his part before the foundation of the world. Somewhere it’s written, “God rested the seventh day, having completed his work,” but in this other text he says, “They’ll never be able to sit down and rest.” So this promise has not yet been fulfilled. Those earlier ones never did get to the place of rest because they were disobedient. God keeps renewing the promise and setting the date as today, just as he did in David’s psalm, centuries later than the original invitation:

Today, please listen,     don’t turn a deaf ear . . .

8-11 And so this is still a live promise. It wasn’t canceled at the time of Joshua; otherwise, God wouldn’t keep renewing the appointment for “today.” The promise of “arrival” and “rest” is still there for God’s people. God himself is at rest.


I want you to worship Me. When you worship Me in spirit and in truth, you release Heaven on Earth! I will give you strength in your day and help you to fulfill all that needs to be done. Your future is in My hands. When you are present, you can enjoy My presence. I am the fountain of life. In the heavenly realm worship surrounds me entirely. You were created to worship Me and I am the greatest gift. Enjoy being present as My presence surrounds you this day and every day. ”

Revelation 5:13

The Message (MSG)

11-14 I looked again. I heard a company of Angels around the Throne, the Animals, and the Elders—ten thousand times ten thousand their number, thousand after thousand after thousand in full song: The slain Lamb is worthy! Take the power, the wealth, the wisdom, the strength! Take the honor, the glory, the blessing!  Then I heard every creature in Heaven and earth, in underworld and sea, join in, all voices in all places, singing: To the One on the Throne! To the Lamb! The blessing, the honor, the glory, the strength, For age after age after age. The Four Animals called out, “Oh, Yes!” The Elders fell to their knees and worshiped.


Today is a gift from your Heavenly Father! Enjoy His presence as He leads you and guides you along life’s journey.


Grace and Peace,
