Practicing God’s Presence
Is God in your life today and are you conscious of God’s presence in your life? The bible scripture states,
“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). (Matthew 1:23 NIV)
Get up every day knowing that God is by your side and is always with you and experience the feeling of God’s presence in your life. When God makes a promise to you He never breaks it. God makes this promise to you:
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)
When you establish a relationship with God and invite Him into your life, it “activate”s God’s power and you will begin to live a restful and peaceful life. When you are conscious of God’s presence every day, you will experience His peace which gives you total rest, insurmountable joy in your spirit and a power that nothing in this world can come close to. In Hebrew, the peace He gives unto you is “Shalom” peace. This is a total and complete peace touching every aspect of your “being”.
The fact is, once your invite God into your life you’ll experience a Christ-like peacefulness. You’ll express yourself and become like Him, a new creation. It is impossible to live in God’s presence without His beauty, love, peace, power and glory rubbing off and becoming part of you.
So how can you recognize being in God’s presence?
Start with seeing God with you in everything you do and wherever you might be. At the workplace for instance, see the Lord beside you directing your steps and thoughts. God’s presence brings clarity of thought and wisdom allowing you to excel. You will discover yourself flowing with great ideas and perhaps even earn a promotion.
If you are looking to make a career change and looking for a new job, God is along side you and guiding you during your interview. See the Lord there in the interview room with you, providing the words you speak. Any nervousness you experience will dissipate as you experience His favor and grace upon you bringing smiles and approving nods from the hiring manager.
Should you be in the middle of an argument, be conscious of and envision the Lord standing beside you. Once you are aware of God’s presence, your words will change and your argument will soon end as you experience the spirit of grace come over. You will observe a restraint and calmness which is not borne out of human resolve, but comes when you know that God who unconditionally loves and watches over you, is there by your side.
Friends, when you become aware of God’s presence in your daily life, worries and anxieties will have no place in your mind. Take time every day to give God thanks and praise in everything, and make Him part of your life. The favor of God will be upon you manifesting an unbelievable joy and peace, prospering you in every area of your life.
