The Present Pressing Realities vs. The Reality of His Presence
Practicing the Presence of God – a Hallmark of a Transformational Company


Recently while meeting with a group of business leaders we talked about this very thing.  I framed the conversation around this thought:  Are you currently being driven by the ‘present pressing realities in your life? or by the reality of His presence in your life?
Our present pressing realities are typically extremely negative and look like this: We’re in the midst of a recession.  Businesses are cutting staff.  There’s no opportunity out there; The people I work with are not…; I can’t step out into a new initiative now – it’s too risky, wait till things settle down first.  The other end of the spectrum is over confidence based in pride and self reliance.  It’s that entitlement mentality that borders on arrogance and attitudes of pride.  Interestingly enough – unbelief sits in both places.  Fear, rebellion, pride, self preservation and mistakes from the past all contribute to this battle.

The Kingdom of God is…
 
Near, at hand (Mark 1:15), and Jesus preach the Kingdom of God wherever he went. (Luke 8)
 
Yet for many, the Kingdom of God is still elusive and not close at all. Maybe the sticking point is in regard to where we’re looking for it.
“The secrets of the Kingdom of God have been given to us.” (Mark 4:11)

Marketplace Solutions – A year of IMPACT!

The Year 2009 has been like a roller coaster ride for many of us. This year we’ve seen many individuals and companies suffer loss. More importantly we have seen more impact and advancement through the transformation message then ever before. It’s as if Marketplace Solutions was raised up for such a time as this.  One of the main objectives of Marketplace Solutions is to see people transitioning from 'survival mode', i.e. coping with demands and pressures in the marketplace, to 'transformation mode', being able to influence our businesses and communities and rise above the pressures and bring lasting change.  Marketplace Solutions is making a difference and yet there’s much more to do.

“This command I entrust to you, (put your name here), my son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may fight the good fight, keeping faith and a good conscience.” 

1 Timothy 1:18,19a
 
It is upon the closeness and discovery of God that He reveals His heart.  Searching out, seeking after, inquiring of the Lord – this is our daily digest.  This discovery is both of who God is and of who we are meant to be in relation to Him.

The question for us today is - What keeps us from practicing the presence of God in the marketplace?  More often than not, it is because we don't think or believe God is with us. 

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” John 14:27

You might feel like everything is coming against you, but God is for you!  You may have even said, 'I'm under it.'  But let's pray together that the Lord will lift us up in His presence through prayer to be Overcomers.

Psalm 130:3-4

"If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with You, that You may be feared."
