Exodus 33:14 “My Presence will go with you, ,and I will give you rest.”

The rest you need in your ministry, business, career, marriage, etc is only found in God’s presence.

This presence preserved an entire nation (the children of Israel) for forty years in the wilderness. They never knew hunger, thirst, diseases, sickness, etc.

God designed man to work in His presence (the garden of Eden) to find fulfillment in life (Genesis 2:8).

When man fell short and sinned, Jesus was sent by God to redeem him. (Genesis 3, John 3:16)

While on earth, there is no single day in Jesus’ entire life that He lived without the presence of His Father until the day of the cross when the sin of man was placed on Him.

Matthew 27:46,50 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.

The cross is the only place where Jesus became weak in His whole life. All other weaknesses were in flesh and not in Spirit.

When the presence of God left Him, He felt exactly what Adam felt after he had sinned and was chased out of the garden of Eden. (Genesis 3)

Jesus was so passionate about the presence of God and that’s what gave Him relevance throughout His life. He could rather die than live for another second, minute, or day minus this presence.

Provebs16.26 The laborer’s appetite works for him; his hunger drives him on.(NIV)

As you pray along with this audio, may the Lord fill your hearts with a fresh appetite and Hunger for Him and His presence because it’s the key to living a fulfilled life.
