Lessons of His Presence – Part 3
Lesson 5: The presence of God in you
1 Corinthians 3:16
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (KJV)
Birds dwell in nests, foxes in holes, men in houses but God dwells in man. God has always desired to dwell in man in fellowship.
The redemptive plan of God has always been about you. This plan had however been in motion before the foundation of the world to restore man to his place in God’s presence. The presence of God in you is the height of the Love of God. The Bible says that we are the righteousness of God in Christ. Our God is a Holy God and His presence in you consecrates and sets you apart for His glory. You don’t ever need to feel unworthy because it is you in Him and Him in you. The Scriptures declare we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God and not us. God’s excellent work is alive and at work in you. It is the presence of God in you that makes you a brand new person.
You are a carrier of the presence of God. When the enemy comes upon you like a flood, the Spirit of God will raise a standard against him. Nothing will be able to defeat you because the greater One lies within you. When you face a financial situation, look within to His presence and the presence will grant you wisdom. The presence of God in Joseph granted him administrative prowess to save an entire nation. Whether you are a school teacher, in government, ministry or stay home mum, the presence of God in you makes all the difference.
It is your season and time!
