In HIS Presence


Read: John 15:1-8

Meditation verse:
“The Lord has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning; He awakens my ear to hear as the learned” (Isaiah 50:4).

Telling people what human teachers have taught us might be of some help to them, but the most impactful words are spoken by those who have been taught by the Lord. The times we spend in God’s presence is like going into a secret chamber where treasures are kept. God’s presence is the secret chamber and some of the treasures inside include revelation, wisdom, clarity, riches, insight, understanding, power, knowledge, peace, and strength which we can bring out for our own use or for others. The messages written in this daily devotional are received as I visit the secret chamber. How else would I have been able to write a message daily for the past one year? Indeed, most of the ideas I work on in my ministry and profession are revealed as I spent time in God’s presence.

How often do you visit this secret chamber? When was the last time you visited? Do you even have a regular time of the day which you have set aside to meet with God? John 15:5-8 says “I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you[b] will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so, you will be My disciples.

Make it a habit of going into the secret chamber each morning, and you would be amazed at the treasures you will discover. Spending time in God’s presence is a time-tested principle for success in every area of human endeavour.


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.

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.
