As we prepare our hearts to take communion at our place of worship either weekly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or daily perhaps in our home environments, let’s stop and think about this very significant directive from our Lord. This scripture from the book of Revelation is very applicable and yet not often used in conjunction with this personal, reflective time. We often see this scripture in the light of salvation as rightly we should.
Is there another corollary meaning for the one who is already a believer and a student of the Bible? May I suggest that this particular scripture could refer to the Lord calling each of us into a deeper walk, understanding or communion with Him that can only occur if we hear with our spiritual ears and then can obey the instructions our Lord has for us to accomplish.
Especially in times of pain or injury, the Lord bids us to move forward in our faith towards in Him.
It is only as we are familiar with His voice that we even venture to obey and open the “door” of our hearts to Him. The richness of communion with Jesus is symbolized in the latter part of this scripture. When healing appears to elude us, we can know nothing could be more satisfying than our Lord’s Presence with us!

It is easy to get so busy asking God for comfort and healing, sometimes we forget to just sit in His presence. What does “sitting in His presence” look like to you?
