Over the years I have often heard the expression of how someone enjoyed “The Presence of God”. This doesn’t have to be one off experiences that you encounter whilst attending a meeting but you can live knowing and experiencing this in your daily life.
I was going to blog on this but decided to refer to my previous articles on my website as they address’s this subject.
Here are a couple of links to my website:-
Extract from “Experiencing the Presence of God”
We are not seeking more of God to experience an experience. That isn’t the answer, we are not seeking the presence of God so we can have some kind of wonderful ethereal feeling, we are seeking after Him because we love Him. We are going to him because of what he has done for us. We want to be in his presence because we are so much in love. And it is as a consequence that we are then in his presence because we are allowing Him to fashion our character. He can then fellowship with us spirit to spirit.

We can not find an alternative method in endeavouring to produce the presence of God.
We can not use carts. i.e. Someone else’s experience, fabricating, copying. Many books on revival have been written, there are principles we can learn, but we can not use them as text books.
So how do we live in His presence? This will mean no compromise, a dying to self.
- There isn’t a formula.
- There isn’t a technique.
- For us to live constantly in the presence of God demands our death.
Luke 14:27 Jesus said “And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple” If anyone was seen in bible times carrying a cross then it could be safely assumed that the person was about to die.
What is dying to one self? Paul said Philippians. 1:21″For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” & Philippians. 3:7 “For whatever things were to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.” It is letting go of selfish attitudes and ambition, and totally abandoning yourself to Gods will and purpose.
There is no mistaking the presence of God. Have you ever been in a meeting a home and sensed the acute presence of God. Well God desires us more than we desire him.
