Indications of God’s Presence in our Lives

In previous posts we looked at the effects of sin on experiencing the presence of God and the importance of God’s presence in a ministry so we must ask, “What are indications of God’s presence?”

The following qualities give evidence of God’s Presence in our lives.

Peace (Rom. 15:33; Phil. 4:9)

When you know His presence, you can have an inward calm despite chaos around you because He is the God of peace.

Rest, Refreshment (Matt. 11:28; Acts 3:19)

When you acknowledge God’s presence, you can “cease striving” because He is God (Ps. 46:10, NASB).

Encouragement (Ps. 16:11; 21:6)

When you are aware of God’s presence, you can’t help but be full of joy and gladness because with Him come eternal blessings.

Shelter (Ps. 16:8-11; 31:20)

When you acknowledge His presence, you can feel secure because when you are with the all-powerful One you know you are protected.

Enlightenment (Ps. 89:15; 90:8)

When you get in touch with His presence, you can know which way to go as He lights your path.

Nearness  (Ps. 145:18; James 4:8)

When you bask in His presence, you can feel a sense of warmth and comfort because you know He accepts you and you belong to Him.

Contentment (Heb. 13:5)

When you experience His presence, you can be satisfied because you know you have all you need.

Endurance (Ps. 46:1; Isa. 41:10)

When you spend time in His presence, you can feel renewed as you find His strength and help to keep going, knowing you are upheld by Him.

What a difference it makes in our individual lives and in a church or ministry characterized by these qualities.  Likewise, what a difference it makes when they are absent.
