IN HIS PRESENCE!

Nov 29, 2021

When man disobeyed the instructions of God , he lost what used to empower him and all kinds of manifestation of the evil nature of satan began to find a way into his life.

Genesis 4:8 Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him.

Man began to go further from a life God had designed for him to live. He began to multiply evil instead of good to an extent of making God regret.

Genesis 6:5-7 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.

Despite being in an evil generation, Noah remained a seeker of God. That’s why God stepped in to save him from being corrupted and made him a preserver of His righteous seed. Genesis 6:8-11

It is in the presence of God that we can be preserved from the corruption of this world.

Psalms 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Your dwelling in His presences preserves you from evil things

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man…

Men are not made on pulpits, platforms, and scenes of life but in the presence of God, and their dominion is linked to their stay in the presence.

God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He still calls us to a place of His presence up to this day.

Jeremiah 29:13-14 And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord,…

You can never find God unless you engage your whole heart in your seeking (praying, fasting, worship, etc)… Isaiah 65:1, Isaiah 29:13

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Diligence means seeking Him wholeheartedly to receive a reward.

Genesis 15:1 I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”

You can be at work and whatever vocation you do and still be in God’s presence.

1 Kings 18:15 Then Elijah said, “As the Lord of hosts lives, before whom I stand,…

The Patriots of faith lived in the presence of God and that’s why they were able to manifest such greater glory and power to the nations.

Your job, business, ministry, etc can not stop you from living in God’s presence because it is where strength is drawn.

Everything sticks together including the dominion God placed on man because of His presence. That’s why we need to get rid of things that offend the Holy Spirit because He is the carrier of God’s presence.

Exodus 33:14,16 And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.”

It is God’s presence that brings distinction upon a man’s life. That’s why the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit have taken residence in you.

Get in His presence that you may find fulfillment and satisfaction and all the materialistic things will be added to you ( Mathew 6:33 ).

May the Holy Spirit help us to capture back the heart, yearning, and desire of being in the presence of God.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU. PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.!
