Praise the Lord!
Brethren let us reflect, meditate and apply the Holy Scriptures as we share on “BEING IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.”
✍️To be in the presence of God means to be before or in the sight of God.
✍️Being in God’s presence is merely inferred rather than reffered to in Scriptures because a human can literally never even approach God’s literal presence, but ‘EXIST’ in it only from a distance on earth or in space.
✍️In our sharing we may not be exhaustive but it provides fundamental principles conducive in practice and applications.
✍️EXODUS 3:5-6 “Do not come any closer,’God said,”Take off your sandals,for the place where you are standing is holy ground.Then He said,”I am the God of your father,the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.At this, Moses hid his face,because he was afraid to look at God.”
1.HIS PRESENCE REVEALS OUR SECRET SINS.
✍️The light of God’s presence reveals the dark places in our hearts.
✍️The longer we spend in God’s presence the more the light shines and highlights our sin.
- HIS PRESENCE REQUIRES RESPECT.
1 Chronicles 12:23-14:17
✍️God prepared His people for this extraordinary privilege.
✍️David respected God’s presence,In turn God honoured him and anointed him in such a way that everyone respected David.
- HIS PRESENCE COMES THROUGH THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
✍️The presence of God radically changes our lives and the lives of others.
✍️People are more affected by what they see than by what they hear.
✍️The coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost brought a great outpouring of the presence of God.
✍️God is present in His gathered community Matthew 18:20.
✍️God is present in your heart.
✍️Our deep spiritual hunger in our hearts can only be satisfied by presenting ourselves to God.
✍️The presence of God satisfies our deepest Spiritual longings.
✍️The impact of the awesome power of the presence of God is so great in a believers life.
✍️God is Holy,He is all powerful,we cannot take His presence for granted.
✍️May this simple spiritual exercises bring a mighty impartation-
☆ Exhale the distracting thoughts.
》Inhale a desire to sense His presence.
☆ Exhale your pre-occupation with self.
》Inhale a desire know Him more completely.
☆ Exhale the worries and anxieties of the moment.
》Inhale His peace.
✍️As I conclude it is through the Cross and ressurection of Jesus Christ that a way into His presence and gift if the Holy Spirit living within us makes it possible.
✍️Brethren,May you have a blessed weekend as we present ourselves in His presence in Jesus Mighty name.
