God’s Presence

“The presence of God represents different things in our lives”

“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross”. (Colossians 1:14-20)

When you go out you must carry the presence of God with you always. The presence of God represents different things in our lives for example the presence of God stood for these things in the lives of the Israelite God’s presence was evident in their time in the “Ark of Covenant” — that is where He dwelt to be close to His people.

This represented to them:

1) Guidance

2) Victory

3) Prosperity

When they are lost they ask for God’s guidance and direction and God spoke to them wherever the tabernacle of the Ark rested. “I Am The Lord your God…who directs you in the way you should go” (Isaiah 48:17)
He stood for them in victory over their enemies and he prospered them wherever it dwelt like in the case of Obed-Edom (2 Sam: 6:10-12) and His directions are always right.

Today the presence of God is within us, the “Ark of God” resides in our heart making us even better than the Isrealites for wherever we are God is. Do you need more victory, guidance and prosperity? Then you need to spend more time in HIS presence, and carry HIM with you wherever you go.

Prayer: God let Your fullness dwell in me richly and make me an instrument of your presence so that victory, power and Your divine direction will be my lot in Jesus name I pray.

What is your Goal for 2013?

John the Baptist had a clear goal to help people prepare their hearts ready for the coming of the Messiah (Jesus Christ) his message was distinct and clear.

“Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand” (Matthew 3:2)

John in his time, preached from the wilderness and people came to hear him from Jerusalem, Judea and the whole area of Jordan. People did not come to him because of his dressing, look or the food he ate. They came to him because he committed himself to the work of God and not his looks, food (locust & honey) or his dressing.
Make it a point of duty in this new year to commit yourself and your family to the Lord. Therefore let the Word of God dwell richly in you and let His peace rest upon you. (Colossians 3:16-17)

If you observe, obey and do all according to the word herein, then you will do great exploit as John did in his time.

God bless you.
