Ark of the Covenant – Moving With God’s Presence

The main reason God created us is to dwell among us and have fellowship with us. He used the ark to bring great assurance to His people, Israel, that His presence was among them regardless of their sinful ways. How does the ark of the covenant translate to us today? How does the ark of the covenant transition to the promise for the new covenant believer that the Lord is in our midst, despite our sinful ways?

This book, Ark of the Covenant – Moving With God’s Presence attempts to demonstrate just like God accompanied Israel in their wandering in the wilderness as well as in their return from exile, so, too He is with us in all our life’s situations.

Ark of the Covenant – Moving With God’s Presence is designed with both the Christian and not-yet-saved in mind. It shows in a straightforward way how God’s presence is a two-way operation; it can work both ways – for and against – depending on which side one is on.

The ark, just as it was an emblem of God’s presence before, the cross is an emblem of God’s grace. What role does it play in your life?

Regardless of what we see or experience, God has not forgotten the human race.

When Life Get’s Rough, Remember_____ (Part 2)

Dear friend,

I trust that you got some encouragement from my last letter. I’m privileged to write to you again today. One puzzling thing I have observed in life is that it’s always darkest just before dawn. No wonder the Psalmist said, “Weeping may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:35). Usually, when we have no hope and there’s no way out – it is dark and weeping is only natural.

However, God says, “I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you.” (2 Kings 20:5)

This is a continuation of my previous letter:

8. Your approach can improve or degrade your situation: Regardless of how grim your circumstances are, don’t forget that you can always worsen them. A positive life with a negative attitude is impractical. Your conduct, actions, and opportunities are greatly limited when you let negativity turn the wheels of your judgment. Your thoughts are powerful. Negative thinking produces negative results and the opposite is true. (See Luke 6:45)

9. Your worry about other people’s negativity won’t help you: Let’s face it, people around you will always have opinions or carry out actions, which are usually based solely on how they view themselves. That’s their problem – not yours and if you worry about that it will weigh you down. (See Proverbs 12:25)

10. Your strength to rise above this lies in Christ: Sometimes our wounds can feel so deep, and if we let them, they can transform us into who we aren’t. See them as temporary and believe that through Christ, you can rise up again. (See Philippians 4:13)

11. Your struggles are the scenery: View what you are going through as the terrain. Not all scenery is so breathtaking, but soon you’ll be able to say, “Yeah, I’ve been there – seen that.” Remember that you’re not alone; your journey is under the Lord’s eye. (See Judges 18:6)

12. Your failures are your teaching moments to step forward: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work,” said the man who invented the light bulb. Thomas Edison took his 10,000 failures (talk about resilience!) to learn what he needed to learn. The issue here is not that you failed rather what you can you learn in order to make progress. That’s crucial. (See 1 Corinthians 10:13)

When life gets tough it hands you the opportunity to build invaluable strength. Although it may not be easy… “That is why we never give up… our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! – 2 Corinthians 4:16-17 NLT

Be encouraged, my friend.

In Christ’s service,
Dee
