In HIS Presence


Read: John 1:1-5

Meditation verse:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God” (John 1:1)

Here are some important facts to note about the word of God

The word is God. (John 1:1). God and His word are inseparable. It is not possible to have a relationship with one without the other.

The word is Jesus Christ. John 1:14 says “the word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth”.

It is the mind of God. 2 Timothy 3:16 says “all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”

It is an effective spiritual weapon. Hebrews 4:12 says “for the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword…” Ephesians 6:17 in listing the weapons of our warfare mentions the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God.

It is a light and a guide for you. Psalm 119:130 says the entrance of thy word gives light. Psalm 119:105 says “they word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.

It is both spiritual and physical nourishment. 1 Peter 2:2 says “As new-born babes, desire the sincere milk of the word. Mathew 4:4 says that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Psalm 119:103 says “how sweet are thy words, sweeter than honey. Haven’t you wondered why you do not get hungry when you are fasting and meditating on God’s word?

God’s word is a healing balm. Psalm 107:20 says “He sent forth His word and healed them”

It is a remedy for success. Joshua 1:8 says “this book of law shall not depart from your mouth…, for then you will make your way prosperous and have good success.

It is a mirror. Hebrews 4:12 says it is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.

It keeps you clean from the stain of sin. John 15:3 says “now you are clean through the word. Psalm 119:9 says “how shall a young man cleanse his ways, by taking heed to the word of God.

It is a compass to guide your path. Psalm 119:19 says “I am a stranger in this earth, do not hide your commandments from me.

It creates and brings to birth. Hebrews 11:3 says “the worlds were framed by the word of God. Psalm 33:6 says, “by the word of the Lord, were the heavens made”.

Lastly, the word of God is your life. Deuteronomy 32: 47 says “for it is not a futile thing for you, because it is your life, and by this word you shall prolong your days in the land…”


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.
