According to Professor Kern, Shekinah means “the presence of God.”
“Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting, for the cloud rested [shakhan] upon it, and the glory of the Lord filled the Tabernacle.” (Exodus 40:35)
God’s shekinah glory is coming!
How are you going to get plugged into that?
In the middle of last week, our family experienced a major tempest. That set all of us significantly behind in our planned schedules. By the grace, of God, I barely managed to prepare and send out devotionals for July 26 and 27. Here’s how God rewarded my faithfulness and obedience.
Because I was running so far behind with our family disruption, it appeared I would not be able to send out devotionals for July 26 and 27. However, shortly before I left home to drive 4+ hours to Chesapeake Virginia on July 26, the Holy Spirit prompted me to prepare and send the devotional announcing the change in the meeting day and location for Pray Culpeper.
At 1:55 PM on July 26, I drove away from home to visit Jerry and Sharon Graham in Chesapeake. They had generously offered to open their home to me for dinner, conversation, and an overnight stay before my Accelerated Coach Training (ACT) group workshop in Norfolk on July 27. Jerry and Sharon are both professional life and nutritional coaches. I first met Jerry at my first (ACT) workshop on June 1, 2007.
When my ACT workshop finished at 5 PM on July 27, I immediately left to drive back home. Because of heavy rush hour traffic, I didn’t get back home until 10 PM. By then I figured I was too tired and it was too late to prepare a new devotional. While my wife was preparing a late dinner for us, I decided to check my email for the prior two days.
To my surprise, I discovered the email from Naomi Cottoms about 4,000,000 Bibles for Africa. While I don’t know Naomi and she had never sent me an email before, she was prompted to contact me after my July 26 devotional about the Pray Culpeper change. After reading Naomi’s touching email and visiting her web link and watching the video on the website, the Holy Spirit prompted me to prepare and send the devotional titled “4,000,000 Bibles for Africa” before midnight.
In response to that last devotional, Patti May sent me an email at 6:20 AM on July 28 telling me I “need to come and meet Michael Howard who just opened a bible school in Africa.”
Tomorrow I will share more about Michael Howard. He is the Founder and President of Shekinah Ministries and Kalibu Ministries in Africa Michael will be leading an “Intercession Conference” at the Church at Northern Virginia on Aug 10 and 12.
Heavenly Father, thank You for getting our family through the tempest last week. Thank You for everyone who prayed for us and encouraged us. Thank You that You will bring something great out of something meant for evil. Thank You for the chain reaction, including the devotionals and the replies from three different people, that will now lead me and many others to meet Michael Howard on Friday Aug 10 at 7 PM. Have Your way. Jesus, we invite You to be LORD of Virginia, America, Africa, and the world. Amen and hallelujah!
