Never Alone Bible Plan

  1. Genesis 28:13-19
    Surely the Lord is in this place, but I did not realize it!Gen 28:16

    *From: Barnes’ Notes on the Bible – Gen 28:18Jacob knew God’s omnipresence; but he did not expect a special manifestation of the Lord in this place, far from the sanctuaries of his father. He is filled with solemn awe, when he finds himself in the house of God and at the gate of heaven. The pillar is the monument of the event. The pouring of oil upon it is an act of consecration to God who has there appeared to him Numbers 7:1. He calls the name of the place Bethel, “the house of God.” This is not the first time it received the name. Abraham also worshipped God here, and met with the name already existing (Genesis 12:8, 13:3).

    Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.Gen 28:15

    Lord help us to be aware and awed by your manifest presence wherever we go. Thank You that You will never leave us. Help us to always seek Your face/presence. –1Chron 16:11

Isaiah 4:5-6 AMPC … And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection). And there shall be a pavilion[tabernacle] for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain.

From NetBible Isa 4:5-6

  • dwelling place[04349] = established place, habitation
  • canopy[02646] = divine protection, defense

Draw Near

October 11, 2013

James 4:8Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Who can draw near and come before the Lord?
Who may ascend the Holy Hill into His presence?
-Ja4:8;Ps24:3-6 AMP

Purify my heart Lord
That I may draw ever closer.

An undivided heart Lord, I desire
That I may ascend Your Holy hill
To behold Your face.

Held there in Your gaze
With all my heart, Lord, my exceeding joy
I will give You praise!

Teach me Your way, O LORD, that I may walk in Your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere Your name. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Your name forevermore. -Ps 86:11-12

O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your dwelling. Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my exceeding joy; yes, with the lyre will I praise You, O God, my God! -Ps 43:3-4

Let us test and examine our ways, and let us return to the Lord! Let us lift up our hearts and our hands [and then with them mount up in prayer(&praise)] to God in heaven. -Lam 3:40-41

Blessed (happy, enviably fortunate, and spiritually prosperous—possessing the happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His grace, regardless of their outward conditions) are the pure in heart, for they shall see God! -Mt 5:8

Every good and perfect gift is from above
Coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights
Who does not change like shifting shadows.

But as for me, the nearness of God is my good
I have put my trust in and made the Sovereign LORD my refuge
That I may tell of all His works.

O my soul, you have said to the Lord “You are my Lord”
I have no good apart, beside or beyond You.
-Ps 16:2

Make known to me the path of life, I pray
Make glad, bring joy to the soul of Your servant
Fill me with joy in Your presence
With eternal pleasures at Your right hand
For to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
-Ps 16:11,86:4

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me
Bless His holy name!

And savor all that He has done;
Draw close and give your praise to Him–
The holy, sovereign, faithful One. -Our Daily Bread
