Dependent on God’s Presence
Those who wait on the Lord . . .shall walk and not faint —
There is no thrill for us in walking, yet it is the test for all of oursteady and enduring qualities.
"walk and not faint" is the highest stretch possible as a measure of strength. The word walk is used in the Bible to express the character of a person— ". . . John . . . looking at Jesus as He walked. . . said, ’Behold the Lamb of God!’
" ( John1:35-36 ). There is nothing abstract or obscure in the Bible; everythingis vivid and real. God does not say,
" but He says,
"Walk before Me. . ."
( Genesis 17:1 ).When we are in an unhealthy condition either physically oremotionally, we always look for thrills in life. In our physical life thisleads to our efforts to counterfeit the work of the Holy Spirit; in ouremotional life it leads to obsessions and to the destruction of ourmorality; and in our spiritual life, if we insist on pursuing only thrills, onmounting up
"with wings like eagles"
( Isaiah 40:31 ), it will result inthe destruction of our spirituality.Having the reality of God’s presence is not dependent on our being ina particular circumstance or place, but is only dependent on ourdetermination to keep the Lord before us continually. Our problemsarise when we refuse to place our trust in the reality of His presence.The experience the psalmist speaks of— "
We will not fear, even though . . ."
( Psalm 46:2 )— will be ours once we are grounded onthe truth of the reality of God’s presence, not just a simple awarenessof it, but an understanding of the reality of it. Then we will exclaim, "
He has been here all the time!
" At critical moments in our lives it isnecessary to ask God for guidance, but it should be unnecessary tobe constantly saying,
"Oh, Lord, direct me in this, and in that."
Ofcourse He will, and in fact, He is doing it already! If our everydaydecisions are not according to His will, He will press through them,bringing restraint to our spirit. Then we must be quiet and wait for thedirection of His presence.

the excess energy into its internal battery and only let what the pc feels is safe energy to get in. this problem plaguespeople living near mountains that have a lot of lightning so I recommend a UPS in these areas.Shorts in electrical sockets means that too many appliances are fighting for the same source and the socketexplodes. A UPS can prevent this from affecting your computer but immediately stopping the bad flow of data from gettingto the computer and turning on its own source of clean power and giving that to the PC for up to 1 hour depending on whichUPS you buy. Home PCS usually use APC products that give 18 minutes worth of battery backup in case of a power lossand protection from brownouts and power surges. They usually cost $80 in retail stores Home offices and smallcorporate centers will use a stronger product that last up to 2 hours on no power. These retail for about $300. Whicheverproduct you get rest assured that you and your data will be the better consumers for it.
