When we are in the presence of the Lord, we enjoy His love, His peace and His rest. Often, it is in that place that He distributes gifts to us without our realizing it. Only later do we notice an increase of His gifting, in and through us, as the need arises. His presence always comes with presents from Him. As we seek Him and not the gifts, we find that He showers us with the gifts.
These gifts are spiritual gifts and come from the greatest gift, love. He wraps us with more of His glory so we can be His gift to others. We carry and distribute His love to all those we meet. As this most precious gift is given, it leads all of us to experience His presence and seek Him even more. His word, healing and peace are shared with others and multiplied in more ways than we can see.
We do not know the results of our sharing Christ’s love. God continues to increase all that is done from His heart of love. We do not follow the signs and the wonders; they follow us. His love heals, restores and comforts. His love is what brings forth all that comes from Him. As we love Him and rest in His presence, let’s receive His presents to present to the world, from glory to glory!
1 Corinthians 13: 1-3 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
