Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness (Isa 41:10)
One of the greatest blessings we have on earth is the abiding presence of God with us. There is a manifest presence of God, which we can sense in a worship meeting in a tangible way. But there is an abiding presence of God that is not felt. We might not sense it, but we see its results. It’s like the wind, unseen yet active with tangible visible effects around us. That was the presence around David that came against His enemies and made things work out for Him. It was the presence that made Kings become perplexed about Abraham. It makes a distinction.
We have to believe that He is with us always. It is believing and exercising our faith in His Word that promises His presence that gives Him the leeway to show up in our lives. The Holy Spirit in us is the fulfillment of His promise to never leave us or forsake us. The Holy Spirit is the presence of Almighty God. The Lord is with you at home, work or school. He is with you in the kitchen, in the streets, wherever you find yourself. Become conscious of the divine presence. The environment around you will respond to His presence. Cultivate a worshipful spirit, because this is an important requirement for any vessel that will carry the presence of Almighty God.
The Word in your mind and mouth (1 Tim 4:15; Josh 1: 8)
Meditate on the words above, that He is with you always. Take a moment to declare that word over and over to get it into your spirit.
Water the Seed (word) to grow. Invite the Spirit’s strength! (Isa 32:15; Zach 4:6)
Thank God for the wonderful blessing of His presence with you. Ask the Holy Spirit to make His presence more real to you that you have experienced before.
APPLY THE WORD TODAY!
Your door to a blessed life today is doing God’s Word. Refuse to be a hearer or reader only! (James 1:22-26)
Consciously remind yourself throughout the day that God is with you. Do not lose sight of the Word, no matter is going on in your world.
