Returning to the Lord's Presence to Enjoy Him
Isa 2:5 House of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of Jehovah. Psa 36:8 They are saturated with the fatness of Your house, and You cause them to drink of the river of Your pleasures. (9) For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.
Words of Ministry
During Isaiah's time, the children of Israel were occupied with their religion, but they had lost the light of the Lord because their heart had turned from Him. They had the temple, the priesthood, and the sacrifices. But because they had turned their heart away from God, they were in darkness. They were not walking in the light. Therefore, Isaiah called them to come and walk in the light of the Lord. This was a call to repent and to confess in order to be brought into the Lord's presence. Psalm 36:8 and 9 describe a person who has returned to the Lord and who is in the Lord's presence. Such a one is satisfied with the fatness of God's house and drinks of the river of the Lord's pleasures. He knows the Lord as the fountain of life, and in the light of the Lord he sees light. In this light the portion of the saints becomes his enjoyment. We need to abide in Christ and walk in the light of life (John 8:12) that we may partake of Christ in the light (Eph. 5:14). We need to have more and more contact with the Lord. We need to read His Word with an unveiled face and an open heart. As we fellowship with the Lord and follow the inner anointing, we shall experience Him as the life within us in a practical way.
