The presence of God is so much needed in every believer’s life. It is what makes the difference between believers and unbelievers. God’s presence is not limited to any place though, it is prevalent in the lives of those who seek it earnestly. In the presence of God, there’s the power of God. Let’s take a look at some few significance of the power of the presence of God.
1 Supernatural Rest.
Exodus 33:14, The LORD replied, My presence will go with you and i will give you rest. God has promised us rest in His presence, and as He has promised , He will do. He watches over His word to perform. The Psalmist confirms God’s faithfulness to His word by saying, He who dwells in the shelter of the most high will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1 David said in Psalm 23:1 and 2 that, The LORD is my shepherd, i shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters.
2 High Favour.
Luke 1:28. The angel went to her and said, Greetings, you who are highly favored! The LORD is with you. Wherever God is, there is His power thus, His favor is shown to whoever He wants to show favour.
3 Supernatural Openings And Liberation.
The power of the presence of God sets captives free. It breaks every chain and bondage. Acts 12:10 – 11, When they were past the first and the second guards, they came unto the iron gate and that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of it’s own according and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from them. 11 And when Peter had come, he said , Now i know of a surety, that the LORD hath sent his angel and hath delivered me out of the bond of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of Jews. Let’s also see Daniel 3: 24 and 26, 24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped into his feet amazement and asked his advisers, ‘weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into fire? They replied, Certainly, O King. He said , Look! I see four men walking around in the fire , unbound and unharmed , and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.” Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, Shadrack, Meshack and Adednego, servants of the most high God come out! Come Here!
4 Divine Direction
Psalm 23:8 and 4 He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though i walk through the valley of the shadows of death, i will fear no evil, for you are with me. Proverbs 3:6, In all your ways, acknowledge Him(God) and He will make your paths straight. The LORD directs the wrong ways of the righteous and those that diligently seek and abide in His presence.
5 Existence In Distinction.
The presence of God distinguishes us from the world. It makes us unique and distinctive among unbelievers. Daniel 6:3, The this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
6. Supernatural Confidence In Life.
The Bible records in 2 Timothy 1:7, that, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. For the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared – Proverbs 3:26
Conclusion: The power of God is resident in His presence; where God is present, there Hs power is. Every believer cannot do without the presence of God. Without the presence of God, a believer is powerless. The heavier the presence of God the greater His power.
