Throw Yo’ Hands In The Air! And Wave ‘Em….(part 1)

Hands_In_AirAs in Genesis – when Adam and Eve “hid” themselves in the Garden of Eden – we today, on some level often attempt to hide our human short comings from the Light of God! However, if we would only realize that the more we expose ourselves to the Light of God – the more we will remain in the Presence of God! Within the Presence of God is everything we need to experience lasting and true fulfillment. {James 1:17}

Also, in Genesis – we find where God asks the question: “Where are you?” {Genesis 3:9}…and today “He” is still asking that same question when it comes to us! {2 Chronicles 16:9a} Now, God isn’t seeking out who we are in personality, but in Spirit. Again, knowing that in the Light and Presence of God is the fullness of joy – why is it that we hide our real selves from “His” Presence…when God “desires”(I say this as a man) to rid us of those short comings that seem to separate us from “Him”?! That is a great question – which I don’t have a ready answer for. For one, it’s not that God doesn’t already know who we are. For some reason we actually think that we can actually hide from the Light of God (lol)!! 🙂  {Psalm 139:8}

And, like Adam we also are constantly saying, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” What we are actually saying is, “because, I saw that YOU didn’t give me any external covering – I provided it myself!” How ignorant can we be?!

Instead of hiding who we really are, we should celebrate ourselves and the life that God has given us! All activities of lying and deceit (especially, as it relates to ourselves) – are coverings that we use to hide the real us. And it most often stems from BEING ashamed. People is ok to BE Human, and we need not be ashamed, afraid, or discouraged…or inadequate…or whatever it is that we feel the need to cover ourselves! Let me remind you, as it says in Psalm 139:14(KJV) I will praise thee; for I AM fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well!

If we would only wave our hands in the air (along with raising our hearts) – and praise God for being fearfully and wonderfully made – instead of hiding; then will remain in “His” Presence! Knowing that in Presence of God lies all of the Promises of God!! But, attempt to hide we not only deceive our own selves, but hiding also keeps us from seeing all the promises that are already made available to us.

I’ve already given you one secret to remaining in God’s Presence; in my next blog entry I will share with you another powerful yet simple tool to BE “seen” by God! 


Psalm 92:5(KJV)

O Lord, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep. 


Romans 11:33(KJV)

33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!  


Revelation 15:3(KJV)

And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. 


Job 36:24(KJV)

24 Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold. 


Psalm 40:5(KJV)

Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. 


Psalm 111:2(KJV)

The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
