GOD’S PRESENCE – Part 2
Recognizing His presence: signs of His presence
Wherever God is, multitude of angels will precede His appearance to carry out assignments to create an atmosphere of order, peace, love and perfection. In Genesis 28:12-16, Jacob recognized His presence by the presence of angels. Hebrews 12:22 says, ‘But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels.”
Where the Spirit of The Lord is there is liberty. 2Cor 3:17. Liberty expresses setting free from any form of bondage. When God appears, chains are broken, burdens are lifted, yokes are destroyed and people who appear and acknowledge His presence are delivered and released from every form of fear or torment. When Paul and Silas evoked His presence in Acts 26:16, their chains were broken and the prison doors flung open immediately. His presence guarantees freedom. Praise God!
In His presence, there is fullness of joy – Psalm 16:11. When God fills a place, you can expect fullness of everything and pleasures undeniable. The atmosphere where God dwells radiates joy unspeakable, the life that God dwells expresses the kind of joy that the world cannot comprehend, an unshakable form of peace and love that surpasses all understanding.
In the presence of God there is glory and transformation. When the presence of God came on the mountain of prayer Jesus was transfigured and there was divine manifestation. You cannot experience God’s presence and remain the same.
So whenever you hunger and thirst for God’s presence get ready for supernatural occurrences, joy, freedom, pleasure, glory, transformation and all round victory. In the presence of God, there is no failure.
