IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD

Psalm 22:3
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

There are so many things that happen when we get into the right alignment with the Holy Spirit. One of the many things I have discovered with my time spent in the presence of God is that, nothing is impossible. Many miraculous healings happen when praise and worship are occurring. Why is this? The Bible says that the Lord inhabits the praises of His people. Sickness cannot reside in His presence because He took care of that on the cross for you and I.

1 John 4:18 puts it so beautifully, "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." God is perfect love! So in His presence all fear disappears. Jesus turned water into wine. He paid His taxes with a coin from a fish’s mouth. The dead were raised to life. When there was no wine left at the wedding, He turned barrels of water into the best tasting wine. On another occasion five thousand people were fed after He gave thanks to His Heavenly Father for a couple of small fishes and a few loaves of bread. People who were totally blind could suddenly see when Jesus was around.

We need to make a commitment to get into the presence of God. There are mighty miracles waiting to happen if we could just press into where God is. He does not live in the realm of the flesh.What can you do today to step out of the natural realm and into the realms of the Holy Spirit of God?

There’s no telling what will happen when you get into the Lord’s presence. But the one thing I know for sure is,  they’re going to be wonderful and amazing things that will change and transform your world.

Reflections:
Spend time today learning how to practice the presence of the Lord and you will be amazed what you will experience. Learn to have a personal praise and worship time, just you and Him!

Power verses:
"....in your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand there are pleasures for ever more."...Psalm 16:11

Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs.--Isaiah 61:7

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.--Psalm 46:4
