The Presence of God Changes Everything

The Presence of God Changes Everything
Dr. Kristi Lemley

One moment in the presence of the Almighty can radically alter our world. It dispels fear instantly, strengthens a weary soul, and changes an eternal destination. How powerful our God is!

Look at the guy who used to roam in the graveyard and was demon possessed. One encounter with Jesus and he was in his right mind (Mark 5:1-20). How about blind Bartimaus? One moment with Jesus and he regained his sight (Mark 10:46-52). Can you imagine the shame the adulteress felt in front of all the men who wanted to stone her? Shame- gone in one breath as Jesus forgave her (John 8:1-30). These examples are only a few of what happens in the presence of our King.

Do you know you can encounter His presence daily? Jesus said to come to Him all who are weary, and He will give you rest (Matthew 11:28). It is in Him that great peace and refreshment is possible.

How do we enter His presence? The Psalmist instructs us to enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise (Psalm 100:4). We need to thank the Lord for what He has done and what He will do. Then we need to praise Him for who He is. This can be done anytime, anywhere, and anyway. God inhabits the praises of His people. However, we must enter in faith. We must believe that God hears us and rewards us when we diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). Not just a “Hi God. How are you doing?” But a full on pressing into Him seeking His face. This takes consistency and vulnerability.

Today, encounter the presence of God. Go to Him. Thank Him and praise His holy name. Watch what will happen to your mind, body, and spirit. Today is turn around day. What you have been seeking and hoping for is found in His presence. The lady who was unclean and pressed into the Lord’s presence to obtain her healing. You too can “press” into the Lord. Don’t allow distractions, doubt, or duty to keep you from His presence. Be desperate to touch the hem of His garment.
