I believe God is with me, and I hope you do too.
Of recent, my thoughts have revolved around a mindedness of the presence of God.
I believe that the church believes what the Bible teaches and not what the TVs communicate. I hope so.
If God’s word says “I will never leave you nor forsake you” Heb 12:5, and it says the Holy Spirit is always with the believer (John 14:17), then we must believe it totally.
I live in a generation where we judge the presence of God by the spectacular.
I live in a generation where we judge the presence of God by our emotional state. So to us, God is only there when our minds feel so, and God is not in the not-so-exciting situations
We must teach our hearts that we walk by faith and not by sight.
That you don’t feel it does not mean God is not in it!
If He said “I will never leave”, then He meant it.
I live in a generation where our faith is base on what our eyes can see and our senses can relate with.
That is carnal. We were not like this.
Jesus made one of the most profound foundational statements about our Christianity.
John 20:29 KJV
“Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed”.
That set the pace for our faith walk.
If we will believe what God’s word says about God’s presence, we will come to see that:
God’s presence is God Himself
God’s presence is not something we invite everyday.
God’s presence is constant.
It’s time for this Christian generation to come back to her senses!
Whether you have God-bumps (goosebumps) in a prayer or worship meeting; or it just feels like a regular day lifting up hands to praise, and not feeling all the holiness and splendor of heaven, God is in it!
Except, of course, you have a faith problem.
I live in a generation where we judge the effectiveness of a prayer moment by our senses. And we judge the anointing (God’s call) on a minister by how much “presence” he carries into a gathering.
WE HAVE LOST OUR MINDS!
Now, the 21st century church guy wants everything to be spooky, weird and mystical.
Jesus was not a weirdo when He walked the earth. Yes, He healed the sick, raised the dead and cast out devils. All these are expected of us too as believers. For us, this is natural.
Mark 16:17-18 KJV
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;  They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
But He wasn’t spooky. His discussions were simple. I mean, everyone could stand a conversation with Him. He was the young, handsome story telling man, who loved people and couldn’t stand them being oppressed.
And yes, He was a gentleman too.
What should be our focus?
What really matters now is to see God’s kingdom find full expression all over the earth.
We spread the Word
We pray down the reign of His kingdom.
We seek God’s interest first. The supernatural is not far away.
The supernatural is here. And if you don’t feel it, it doesn’t mean God is not in it.
