Living In The Presence Of God
One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock
As I was still up at 2am studying the word of God I read this scripture and when I read it, it touched me because this scripture is my deepest thoughts and desires of myself and my relationship with God. Even though my physical brain cannot understand the connection I have with God my Spirit does. My spirit connects with God on a level of total Faith and Knowing that he is my Father and God. I really believe that I will be with him forever and that everything I go good he is the source and everything bad he has my back to deliver. I believe in that favor I have with him. I believe that I am totally protected by God from any harm. That when things do show up he is going to make a way for me to come out on top. I believe these things with all my heart and the reason I believe them is because I live in his presence. I could not be anything that I am today without his presence going everywhere I go. There is nothing like being in the presence of God. We should make a habit out of being in his presence at all times. No matter what we are doing. Your ultimate desire should be in his presence and have it surround you like a shield. Greatness lies in his presence. We should never want to be absence from God's presence.
So you may ask what are the benefits from being in God's presence?
We can be sure that he will help us
When we are in his presence we can be sure to have all wisdom and knowledge to go about your daily task and activities.
We can avoid situations when we live in his presence. There are certain things we will not do and things we will not touch when are are living daily in his presence
We can see things come before they are about to happen. God will not allow some things to sneak up on you but he will nudge at you and give you a spirit of discernment.
God Presence = His Mindset
God's Mindset = His Word
You have to live in his word in order to be successful. There is no true success outside of God's Word. You can be successful at anything because you have the complete instruction Guide on how to do so which is his word.
If you are not living in God Presence and you have a strong desire to be in his presence God will take care of you. He will give you his presence which is what he is looking for.
God Honors our efforts. I had to learn that I am not perfect nor will I ever reach perfection here on earth. I learned that if I stay in his presence and do the very best I can he will honor my efforts. God really does honor our efforts and those things we fail at he makes us strong in those areas so that we can succeed and not fail. Follow your heart to serve God completely. My one desire in all that I do is to be pleasing to him Make your life about him. It has to be about him. I know it may be hard for your to not think of yourself but it has to be done. God will take care of what you want and need. Whatever you do anyway should ultimately be about hi, so you can serve him better. Live in his presence today!
