And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. Exodus 33:14
From our teaching yesterday, we saw the importance of Divine presence. It is so important that according to our opening scripture, Moses told God that he would not go anywhere if His presence wouldn’t go with them. “And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me , carry us not up hence. For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth. And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.” (Exodus 33:15-17). It is the presence of God that differentiates us from the world. When the plagues were on Egypt, it was the presence of God with the children of Israel in Goshen that kept them safe. Beloved, you need the presence of God. It is not something to joke with. Whatever it takes to have it and keep it, do it!
Today we will look at how to go about it. First, receive Jesus as your Lord and personal savior. Next, receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Next, you need to make fellowship with the Holy Spirit a lifestyle. The more you fellowship with the Holy Spirit, the more His presence is manifested in your life. This involves Word study, Worship in truth and Spirit, fervent prayer, total obedience to God’s commands, selfless service. Next, you need to live a life of personal consecration. God is holy and dwells in Holy places. I know that human righteousness is like a filthy rag before God but when you became born again, you received the righteous nature of Christ. It is your responsibility to live it out. Living in the fear of God will help you walk in holiness. Next, you need to get involved with what God is mostly concerned about; Souls. If you are not a soul winner, God’s presence will not be strong on your life. Next, you need to be sacrificial. Whatever God demands that you let go of, don’t even hesitate; let it go.
Once these are in place, you will always carry the presence of God around and you will not only be safe from the perils of this end time but also be a safe haven for those around you. This presence will also unlock favour upon your life, family and the works of your hand.
Healed of pains
I suffered from pain in my chest and ribs due to pneumonia. It was terrible. I took several medications, all to no avail. I attended a Tuesday deliverance service in church. During the prayer session, I prayed with all my heart. After the prayers, I discovered that the pains were gone. I checked myself and it was no more there. I thank God for healing me.
1. [Thank God for a new day]
2. [Accept Jesus as your Lord and savior if you are yet to do so. Ask for the baptism of the Holy Spirit if you are yet to receive it. Ask for grace to do what it takes to carry the presence of God]
3. I receive grace to do whatever is required of me to carry and keep the presence of God in Jesus name.
4. Father Lord, Guide our leaders right and help the youths of this State and this Nation to know the truth in Jesus name.
5. I command unprecedented favour over my life, family, and the works of our hands in Jesus name.
