Topic: Value for the Presence of God [Seeds of Destiny 28 May 2019 Devotional]
The Presence of God must not be assumed; the Presence of God must be confirmed.
SCRIPTURE: And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it…And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him. Luke 2:42-45
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Presence of God must not be assumed; the Presence of God must be confirmed.
Our anchor Scripture tells us the story of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of Mary and Joseph, when he was 12 years old. They attended a feast in Jerusalem and on their return, Jesus was not in the company of His earthly parents and they were not aware. They went on a whole day’s journey assuming He was in their company while He was not.
This is the condition of many Christians today – they are moving through life without God, yet they assume God is with them. One of the greatest challenges of humanity today is that many people are moving without the Presence of God. It is possible for us to continue our activities as usual without the Presence of Divinity and we are not aware. Assumption is a destroyer of destiny. The Presence of God must not be assumed; the Presence of God must be confirmed.
The absence of the Presence of God in the lives of people is as a result of lack of passion and value for the Presence of God.
Now, what does the Presence of God carry?
1. Daily Guidance and Revelation (Matthew 4:4).
When you are connected to the Presence of God, there is daily guidance and revelation, and in the absence of Divine guidance, life is prone to terrible mistakes, pains and regrets.
2. Spiritual Power and Authority (Mark 16:20).
A man who carries the Presence of God carries spiritual power and authority that makes him irresistible, indomitable, and indefatigable.
3. God’s Ways and Wisdom (Psalm 32:8).
A carrier of God’s Presence does not struggle to understand the Bible or Voice of God.
Beloved, do all it takes to dwell permanently in the Presence of God because the Presence of God is indispensable to the life and destiny of man, both in time and in eternity.
REMEMBER THIS: The Presence of God must not be assumed; the Presence of God must be confirmed.
- Deliberately refuse to function without the Presence of God.
- Fellowship with God consistently through the study of the Word, prayers and worship.
