Refreshing Presence represents the touch His presence brings as we release any separations that keep us from Him.
“Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus” Acts 3:19-20 ESV
He calls us Beloved, and as we release all that hinders deep intimacy with Him and press into His presence in worship and holy adoration His promises surround us, ministering angels tend to us, and refreshing saturates our weary souls and brings forth life and beauty.
The silk in this image is called Anointed Priest. The colors in it are ox blood red representing living sacrifice, cobalt blue representing the word of God, and imperial purple representing kingdom authority. As 1 Peter 2:9-10 reminds us we are “…a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.”
Father may we jealously guard our relationship with You being ever mindful of the foxes that come to ruin the garden, and diligent to thwart their attempts.
