The Daily Fountain Devotional 23 April 2020 for Anglican Communion
Topic: Qualified for His Presence
Scripture: Psalm 24:1-10
Message: This generation is witnessing an upsurge in the number of ministries, churches, fellowships or gatherings filled with people who claim to be seeking God. Some of these people are zealous and serve sacrificially in their different denominations.
However the bible tells us in today’s passage that there are strict qualifications for those who can stand in God’s temple or mountain. Such people must have clean hands, pure hearts and abstain from deceit and lies (v.4). Verse 3 notes that bountiful blessings from God and His righteousness will be their portion. What is preventing you from going up to God’s presence to reap His innumerable wonderful blessings? Are your hands filled with blood? Are you full of deceit, lies and impurities?
The Almighty God has made a great call in Isaiah 1:18:‘Come let us reason together, though your sins be as scarlet, or red like crimson,they shall be as white as wool.’So tell those gates of sin, laziness, procrastination, curses, problems, bondages, etc., to be lifted up because the King of kings wants to come into your life, family and work today.

If you let Him in, God, the King of kings who is mighty and strong in battle, will settle the challenges confronting you to His glory, in Jesus name!
Meditate: “Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by.” (Psalm 57:1)
I command every gate constraining me from getting into God’s presence to be lifted in Jesus name!
