Meaning of His presence

Genesis 1:2 KJV[2] And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

We see in the above Scripture that the first manifestation of God’s Presence is the Spirit of God. His presence came to restore order to a formless, empty and dark world where chaos and evil works prevailed. When God showed up on the scene, light came and everything was restored to normalcy, the way it was created in the beginning. His presence can simply be defined as where His Spirit dwells, rules and manifests.

Moses recognized this in Exodus 33:14 when he insisted on God’s presence going with them in their journey through the wilderness. Whatever you do, wherever you go, you need the active presence of God to be with you.

Adam manifested God in the garden of Eden because he had His presence in him. He became a like God and exercised dominion over all God created because of His presence. What he lost when sin set in was this presence and thereafter, he lived a meaningless life. A life without the active presence of God is worthless. John 15; 5 – I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, then you will produce much fruit. Without me, you can’t do anything.

My charge to you today is, get into the presence of God and get the true meaning of your existence and make something of your life.
