Knowing The Lord Through Taking The Lower Seat So He May Lift Us Up

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne:


Knowing The Lord Through Taking The Lower Seat So He May Lift Us Up

“Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord”

Hosea 6:3


Bless the Lord, beloved of our Father, for this awesome invitation and exhortation God graciously has given us, to “know, let us press on to know the Lord.” To know our Lord is such a daily blessing and fellowship of life for us, and to press on to know our Lord shows us that we are always moving forward and growing in the knowledge of our great God and Savior!


Two days ago I shared with you regarding pressing on by pressing in and yesterday I wrote about pressing on by pressing up, as God’s New Covenant kingdom of priests, ever approaching His presence, that we might honor Him even as we know Him.


Today I would like to invite you to behold the beautiful way, or spiritual posture, in which God promises to lift us up, as we enter His presence.


It’s as simple as this - enter His presence humbly, taking the lower seat, and He will lift you up so you may be closer to Him. It’s as James, the brother of Jesus, wrote, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you (4:8) and “Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you” (4:10).


Being a priest of God in His presence has absolutely nothing to do with pride. It has everything to do with humility.


Why do you think so many religious people know nothing of the priesthood and show little interest, even if they do hear of the priesthood or see it in Scripture. It’s all pride, pure and simple
