“My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.”
Psalm 84:2 (NIV)
William McDowell said it simply when he sang ,”There is nothing like the presence of the Lord.” The presence of the Lord is where we find peace, joy, salvation, grace, mercy and most importantly, God Himself. As believers, many of us believe the importance of His presence. However, because of the demands of life, jobs. family and more, the challenge of remaining in His presence becomes real.
Even for those of us in ministry, it can be a challenge. Daddy loves it when we are about his business. But He also loves it when you take a break to sit at His feet. This retreat is designed by the hand of God to refresh, restore and renew you. It is designed for you to experience His presence in new and exciting ways. It is designed for you to enjoy His presence.
The altar of God in scripture was used as a place of sacrifice, of freewill offerings, sin offerings and burnt offerings. But it was also used as a marker and reminder. It signified that this was the place where God was and could be met. If you just want more of Jesus, to experience His presence, then sign up today and come to the altar of God.
