Who may abide in your tabernacle? Who may enter your presence on your holy hill? Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking truth from sincere hearts Ps15vs1-2. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Who shall stand in His Holy place? He that hath clean hands and a pure heart, who hath not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord. Ps 24vs3-5a. In order for us to abide in Gods presence we should dwell in the secret place of The Most High. Only when we allow God to be our Refuge and our place of safety will He arise and raise up a banner on our behalf. There are benefits when we abide in Gods presence in complete surrender some of these are listed in Ps 91vs3-16. In verse 14 it says The Lord says" I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name" What a Mighty God we serve!! Today we will look at another area we need to work on Honesty---Righteous conduct. Isaiah 11vs5 says we should wear Righteousness like a belt and truth like an undergarment, we should hunger and thirst after Righteousness. It's our attitude not our appetite that determines our altitude. He that hath clean hands and a pure heart. Clean hands are for Supernatural Strength. "And he who has clean hands will grow stronger and stronger" Job17vs9. We will do exploits in Jesus Name when we walk upright with Him. Clean hands is for fellowship with God. "Cleanse your hands you sinners and purify your hearts" James4vs8. Clean hands are for worship" I will wash my hands in innocence, so I will go about your altar, O Lord that I may proclaim with a voice of thanksgiving and tell of your wonderful works" Psalm26vs6-7. Clean hands brings us prosperity for Righteousness "According to the cleanliness of my hands he has recompensed me" 2Sam22vs21. Living a Righteous life is not easy. It takes self-control, patience, long-suffering, kindness, gentleness. It takes character. Ultimately it takes the Power of God at work in us to get to the secret place. We should seek Gods face and pray with understanding 1Cor14vs15. Prayer helps us walk perfectly and completely in all the will of God Col4vs12. Let's purpose in our hearts to walk honestly before God with a new strength of purpose, new determination and a new inspiration of faith. Remain Blessed and Heavenly Favoured!! Shalom!!

Who may abide in your tabernacle? Who may enter your presence on your Holy hill? Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking truth from sincere hearts. Ps 15vs1-2. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Who shall stand in His Holy Place? He that hath clean hands and a pure heart, who hath not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord. Ps24vs3-5a. To abide is to dwell, to remain. As children of God we are called to be Holy. 1Peter1vs16.2 We cannot maintain the standard if we are not abiding in Gods presence. We should seek to please God and constantly obey His Word so we can enjoy the benefits of His Shekinah Glory (presence of the Lord). Three basic areas of life are listed in the above verses; 1) Integrity--- blameless character 2) Honesty--- righteous conduct 3) Sincerity---truthful conversation. Today we will look at Integrity---blameless character. What we are largely determines what we do and say, so our first emphasis should be on Godly character. Integrity means completeness, moral innocence. The exact opposite of compromise. Integrity is important in the life of a Christian because it defines to others who you are. People want to know if you are for real. Integrity determines how you react to certain suituations, it demonstrates your Spiritual condition, if you lack integrity it can damage your testimony. Integrity Blesses us Prov20:7, it Judges us Job31:6, it protects usPs25:21, it guides us Prov11:3. We should pursue integrity, seek it and desire it. It is a necessity in our walk with the Lord as we seek to abide in His presence. We should protect it with all our heart why because we can easily lose it. We should strive to develop a Godly character marked by a sound character, complete loyalty to God, Obedience, persistence, purity, service, faith, forgiveness and vision. We should be able to say like David did in Psalm 26:1, Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity, I have trusted also in the Lord, therefore I shall not slide. I have heard it said It's not what we eat that gives us strength--but what we digest. It's not what we earn that makes us rich--but what we save. It's not what we read that gives us knowledge --it's what we remember. It's not what we preach that makes us Christians--but what we practice. God will not reject a person of Integrity Job8vs20a. I pray we seek to abide daily in Gods presence. Shalom.

We have to trust God at all times and put our confidence in Him. Proverbs 3vs 5-6 says Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do,everywhere you go; He's the one who will keep you on track. The word maintain means to stick to correctly, keep in a certain state, keep clean, hold in place, sustain. In order to abide in Gods presence we need to maintain the standard Christ has set out before us. How do we handle stress? Is our confidence in God maintained during times of distress? God has a powerful truth for us to hear. We do not handle stressful situations by fighting against them, instead God calls us to be at rest in Him. In Ps46:10 David remind us that we should maintain the standard and be still in the presence of the Lord. To the apostle Peter it meant refusing to carry burdens not meant for him: " casting all your care upon Him for He cares for you. Our human instinct wants to find the nearest emergency exit but God calls us to draw near and absorb the truth in the Scriptures. Most of all God wants us to know Him and the power of His resurrection. Our stress need not become distress. When we place our confidence in God we will be able to walk through difficult circumstances with inner quietness mentioned in Gal5:22 and we can say with confidence "The Lord is my helper, and I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Heb 13:6. This is our heritage in Christ Jesus. Reject every trace of confusion and act on Gods promises. Do not allow confusion to gain a stronghold in your mInd it will block you from taking possession of Gods promises. Wait on the Lord in confidence and draw His wisdom to lead you into Victory. Shalom

We must have the unshakable assurance that God is Strong and Mighty in battle. No matter what we are going through God can deliver us. There are times when the blows are heavy and merciless and the pain gets unbearable, but the assurance in Psalm 44:5 must be our strong stay; ""With your help we'll wipe out our enemies, in your name we'll stomp them to dust" (msg) Psalm46:7 gives the reassuring revaluation that; "The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress" (niv) We must not lose sight of these signal promises, no matter how strong the temptation or trial we must arise, shake them off and step on them by the Power of the Living God. This is the heritage of the children of God whose righteousness is of God Himself. Isaiah 54:17. We need to be strong in the Lord and draw Strength from His Word In all these things we are more than conquers Through Him who loves us ( niv) Be reassured that you are not alone. God is with us we need to allow him to strengthen us, uplift us, fill us, guide us, elevate us and lead us into Victory. As we face challenges with Gods help we are well able to conquer. Be faithful, be strong, and sincere in Gods service and then wait and see if He will not open the floodgates of heaven and bless you abundantly. Trusting God is one way to be established. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord and whose hope the Lord is Jer17:7. Today I pray we purpose in our hearts to allow God to have His way in our lives He is our Refuge and Strength. Remain Blessed and Heavenly Favoured!! Shalom
