Gen 18:1-2 (NIV) The Lord appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. 2 Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.
While growing up as a child, I learned from this story that it is good to be hospitable and to attend to strangers charitably. But I always wondered how Abraham could identify these men as special.
‘How do I know who to attend to because I cannot possibly attend to every stranger I see the same way, especially these days that there are many wicked people looking for whom to prey on. How do I not miss out on special visitations like that of Abraham? How do I not miss out of God’s timing for my visitation?’
One thing we can say about Abraham was that he walked in the presence of God. Abraham was the most conscious person of the Lord God in his generation, and because of this, he could hear from God and walk before God.
We see in Rev 1:10 that on the day of the Lord, John was in the Spirit and he heard the Lord. We can infer that for us to be able to look up and see or hear like Abraham and John did, we must be in the presence of the Lord.
Go into today knowing that if you will remain in the presence of the Lord long enough, God will speak to you. Whenever God appears or speaks; He solves a problem.
Pray for grace to always dwell in the presence of the Lord.
