In HIS Presence


Read: MATTHEW 28:16–20

Meditation verse:

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14)


The coronavirus pandemic that hit the world in 2020, took everyone by surprise. Suddenly, the world stood still and watched in horror as the death toll increased by the second. It didn’t matter how much you had in your account or how many luxury cars you owned or which exotic destinations you could vacation in. All that mattered was to be able to breathe on your own.

However, amidst the horror and hopelessness, scripture was being fulfilled. From the ashes of despair arose a new wave of glory. The knowledge of the glory of the Lord began to cover the whole earth. As the world went online, carrying out processes and activities virtually, God’s word was not left out. The gospel was being preached continuously. Church services took place online. Bible studies and prayer meetings were held online. We listened to the word of God and prayed whilst cooking, bathing, eating, and walking. In the twinkling of an eye, physical pulpits became virtual ones.

Before Jesus left the earth, He gave us the great commission; to go make disciples of all nations. God will not initiate the advancement of this cause and halt it midway. This new wave will continue even when the tides of the corona plague have been stemmed. The world is witnessing a revival. A new wave of glory has been ushered in. The pandemic opened our eyes to the fact that we can preach the word of God and share the good news of salvation to anyone in any location in the world. It showed us that we can pray for anyone at any time and from any place. The salvation message can no longer be restrained by geographical location, time, or space.

How can you and I plug into this new wave? Wherever you find yourself, share the good news. Your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office, school, and shop have become churches. Your social media handles, phones and laptops have become pulpits. You no longer need to wait to enter a physical pulpit before sharing the gospel. And you do not have to be a pastor. The great commission is for all of us.


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at rockteachingministry@gmail.com. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.

I look forward to hearing from you.
