IN HIS PRESENCE

IN HIS PRESENCE

ANCHOR QUOTE: " An expert was once a mediocre. If some people reject you another people are  already there to embrace you. There are two sides to life either : ups or lows,  the choice is yours " - Adewale Osunsakin

HIS GLORIOUS PRESENCE IN US: I am with you always , even unto the end of the world. Amen. Moses made a request of the Lord. He said, “…If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence” (Exodus 33:15). Many today, because of these words, also pray, “Lord, if your presence doesn’t go with me, I won’t move.” You need to understand that the Old Testament was a different dispensation from the New Testament. At that time, Jesus hadn’t come; so they couldn’t enjoy what we’re privileged to enjoy today: that is, His glorious presence “in” us. When Jesus came, the Jews enjoyed the revelation of “Emmanuel,” which means, “God with us.” What a blessing it was for them back in the day when Jesus walked the streets of Galilee, Nazareth and Capernaum! God almighty, tabernacled in Jesus, was with them! O, what a day! Jesus was the Word incarnate. However, today, revelation has transcended “Emmanuel.” God is no longer just with us, or amongst us, but lives in us through the Holy Spirit. The Bible tells us that this was a mystery that was hidden in ages and generations past, but now has been revealed to God’s saints: “To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory " (Colossians 1:27).
Christ in you is greater than “Emmanuel!” Jesus has come, and He has died; He was buried, has arisen, and has ascended. Now, He’s seated in the heavenly realms, but through the Holy Spirit, He lives in our hearts. We thus have access to the divine presence twenty-four hours a day! In Matthew 28:20, He said, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” He lives in you now; He lives in every fibre of your being and every bone of your body.Talking about the Holy Spirit in John 14:17, Jesus said, “…for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” He was with them as He walked the streets and showed great and mighty miracles, but now, He lives in you. Therefore, you can enjoy the glory of God’s presence, lounge in His love, and be suffused in His wisdom and grace, as you revel in the eternal victories He’s wrought for you. PRAYER: Dear Father , thank you , for your divine presence in me has made me more than a man .  I'm in Union with the Holy Spirit, and live above all the limitations of the human realm. Thank you for your love, abundant grace, mercies and goodness that I enjoy today, and always,  in Jesus'  Name. Amen.  Honorable in Motive and Action: Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32. Principle, right, honesty, should ever be cherished. Honesty will not tarry where policy is harbored. They will never agree; one is of Baal, the other of God. The Master requires His servants to be honorable in motive and action. . . . Those who choose honesty as their companion will embody it in all their acts. To a large class, these men are not pleasing, but to God they are beautiful.Satan is working to crowd himself in everywhere. He would put asunder very friends. There are men who are ever talking and gossiping and bearing false witness, who sow the seeds of discord and engender strife. Heaven looks upon this class as Satan's most efficient servants. But the man who is injured is in a far less dangerous position than when fawned upon and extolled for a few of his efforts which appear successful. The commendation of apparent friends is more dangerous than reproach. Every man who praises himself brushes the luster from his best efforts. A truly noble character will not stoop to resent the false accusations of enemies; every word spoken falls harmless, for it strengthens that which it cannot overthrow. The Lord would have His people closely united with Himself, the God of patience and love. All should manifest in their lives the love of Christ. Let none venture to belittle the reputation or the position of another; this is egotism. Never speak disparagingly of any man, for he may be great in the sight of the Lord, while those who feel great may be lightly esteemed of God because of the perversity of their hearts. Our only safety is to lie low at the foot of the cross, be little in our own eyes, and trust in God; for He alone has power to make us great. The judgment and ability of all are needed now. Every man's work is of sufficient importance to demand that it be performed with care and fidelity. One man cannot do the work of all. Each has his respective place and his special work, and each should realize that the manner in which his work is done must stand the test of the judgment. Ezekiel  37:1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,  37:2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.  37:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.  37:4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.  37:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:  37:6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.  37:7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.  37:8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.  37:9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.  37:10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. “And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” - Rom.4:21 Mattaki from Kuwoi city of Nigeria is the city church elder.  He is a rich farmer.  One day he invited all the women together in front of his house.  Hearing this Godly honest and loving man’s invitation they gathered in front of his house.  He ordered them to bring all the crops from his paddy fields.  His field was 5 kilometers away from his house, some of them told they have to attend their own works and went away.  104 women went with some big and some small baskets.  Some carried basket full and others half basket level with hesitation thinking why to carry so much to the elder returned his home.  One woman with big basket, fully thruster crops inside the basket returned his home.  When all the baskets reached the place, Mattaki told the women that what much you brought belongs to you.  Nobody was able to believe it.  But in mercy and happiness all thanked him. And they each one of them began to lament that, “If I had known this earlier, I should have gathered more.  Women went with their own works felt and said that they lost good chance. When a man does good we feel joy.  When unbelievable things happen, we feel happy.  If so, will not the almighty God give us happiness? Will he not show his expedition to fulfill the promises? Though Abraham was in the unbelievable situation he believed hopingly.  Though Abraham was 100 years old and his physique and Sarah’s physique lost the power of conception, he never thought about the situation.  He who promised will perfect it was his faith which made him powerful and strong. Dear ones! We human beings are concerned with fulfilling given promises.  God is faithful in his words.  So, is it not sure that God will accomplish in its perfect time? Yes, our God is faithful in his words.  If you trust God in all of your worst situations God will surely fulfill his promise and bless you
