Are You Seeking God’s Presence in Your Life?

January 14, 2019

MESSAGE SUMMARYCan you tell what God is up to in our world, in our time, in our church, and in America? Are you a part of what God is doing in the world today, or you we just reacting to what God is doing – thereby, creating conflict and division? In Psalms 105:4-5, we are reminded of God’s power in the world if we do seek His presence in our lives: “Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered.". On the other hand, Paul, in 1 Thessalonians 1:9, warns us of the implications for not including the presence of Jesus in our worldly considerations: “They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might.”. While the Lord is leading, and directing, it seems that we are wrapped up in our agenda and our way of doing things; therefore, we miss God’s presence; and we miss the Holy Spirit in our lives. 

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONBecause of who I am in Jesus Christ, I will not be driven by LonelinessRather, I will abide in the Lord’s Presence. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5).
