What does Babylon represent to you? Babylon represents anything against God!
The reason I have not been writing lately is because Satan has tried to take me back to square one. He has done an excellent job these last two weeks. Do you and I understand that the enemy wants to take us to the one place that God himself has called us to leave?? He wants to back us up and take us to the place of our greatest despair. Don't think for one minute that he is going to come at you with horns and a mean look that is scary. He is not going to tell you that backing you up to start over is going to hurt; or cause turmoil in your life. He is going to come at you as a beautiful light. He is going to say this is going to FEEL good!!!

Ask yourself these questions this week, Are we doing the influencing? Or we being influenced? Who is winning here? Us or the enemy? We can be carried away by the things of this world. Beth Moore teaches us in Daniel that we have been assigned to this world but the enemy has also assigned the world to us. What influence will win? Your self will (aka "the flesh") or the power of the Holy Spirit?
The verse of today: PSALM 27:4; One thing I will ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. 5; For in days of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling, he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.....
Our greatest desire should be to live in God's presence every day. Sadly this is not the desire of many believers, we must strive each day to enjoy that relationship that God has so freely given us. Praise him that he is Sovereign!
Trying to live in his presence,
