I want to share a word of encouragement with you today. This is part of a message the Holy Spirit led me to put in my new book, The Altar of His Presence. He said it was a word to those who are seeking to abide in a greater dimension of His Presence and power. I also would like to share the response we received from two of today’s great Christian leaders after they read our new book. Please continue to pray with us as we and our publisher, Destiny Image, prepare to launch this “word of the Lord.”
The Holy Spirit said, “Enter each new day with thanksgiving and every situation with praise. Give thanks to the Lord by declaring the blessings you have received (past) and praise His Name for the things He is about to do on your behalf (see Psalm 100). For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations (Ps. 100:5). Honoring the Lord with true praise is an expression of gladness and rejoicing of the heart; it is a music of the soul and spirit which no language can adequately express and where the Lord has promised to dwell (see Ps. 4:7; 33:21; 103:1; 106:2; Luke 1:46; 2 Cor. 9:15).”
And concerning The Altar of His Presence from Charles Patterson, Pastor Emeritus of Church of the Hills and current President of Charles Patterson Ministries in Austin, Texas:
“Many people today are often intimidated by the idea of developing a personal and intimate relationship with the Lord which I define as, ‘a relationship within which one can actually experience His Presence and recognize His voice as He speaks in many different ways.’ Robert Stone skillfully opens Scripture to reveal that this idea is actually God’s. Furthermore, as God’s invitation to us becomes our priority we discover God’s purpose, pattern, and pathway to know and experience Him in a new and very intimate way. I highly recommend this book both as a study guide and a daily devotion to discover the beauty of God’s Presence more fully. It will truly alter your life.”
Ric Shields, the President of the great international missions’ organization, Doorways (Broken Arrow, Oklahoma) also said:
“The Altar of His Presence is not for those who wish to be motivated by other people’s stories. Instead, Robert Stone skillfully weaves life lessons of his own, richly seasoned with Scripture, in order to lead the reader into an altar’ed life. This devotional will help you to understand and establish your “trysting place”—an appointed time and place to call upon the Lord and to become His voice in our world. May each of us ‘fully commit to hearing the voice of the Spirit and obeying the illumination He gives from His Word’ as we become altar’ed by His Presence in our lives.”
Again, I want to thank you for your love and support of our ministry. Continue to pray with us that the Lord will give us “open doors” in which to share the message of The Altar of His Presence.
God bless you today!
