In HIS Presence


Read: Psalm 139: 1-24

Meditation verse:

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:11).

God’s awesome presence is always with us. The psalmist was conscious of this fact as he said “where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? Here are ten benefits of constantly abiding in God’s presence. In His presence you will experience fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11).

You can obtain mercy and find grace in your time of need (Hebrews 4:16).

‘Mercy’ frees you from the shackles of your past, ‘grace’ is the enabler that propels you to keep moving forward. You will receive rest from all your labours and weariness (Mathew 11:28)

You can cast all your cares and burdens on Him (1 Peter 5:7)

You will become bold. When they saw the boldness of Peter and John, they realised they had been with Jesus (Acts 4:13).

You will cover you with His feathers such that you are preserved from the terror by night and the arrow that flies by day (Psalm 91: 4-5).

You will receive peace that surpasses all human understanding (Phil 4:6-7)

You and your household will be blessed. When Obed-Edom housed the ark of God which was a symbol of His presence, the Lord blessed him and all his household (2 Samuel 6:11).

Your soul will delight itself in the abundance that money cannot buy (Is 55:1-2)

Lastly, He will be with you wherever you go. (Hebrews 13:5)

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.
