The planning stage

Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place.” Ex. 33:16 [Jesus said] “But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.” Luke 24:49

The only plan the disciples in the upper room had was to wait for the Holy Spirit. Moses wasn’t about to budge until He sensed God’s personal presence. We can get caught up in purpose, in planning and in the details of executing our plans, and fail to recognize or enjoy God’s personal presence. Fully and continually experiencing God’s presence with us, in us, and through us is the purpose and plan.

Lord, fill me with Your Spirit and help me respond to whatever happens out of Your presence in me.
