The Presence of God…

There is nothing that can compare with the presence of God…

For those of us who are a part of God’s family – His children, His Church, His Bride – we are blessed beyond any measure…

Beyond comprehension we are blessed…

The presence of God is free…

It is not earned…

It is not lost…

It is not conditional…

It is free and freely available to all who believe…

We have limited God for so long that we think we understand His presence…

We do not…

He can not be defined…

He can not be confined…

He can not be understood with our reasoning…

We are brute beasts before Him…

We have nothing of value to offer Him and yet in His goodness He has deposited His life inside of us, making us new creatures in Christ…

Freeing us from our sin…

Freeing us from the dominion of darkness…

Setting us free to serve the Living God…

And we are serving the Living God in our spirits – those of us who have been born again by the Spirit of God…

And nothing can stop that because the spirit – the new creation – that He has given us is created in all holiness and righteousness of the truth…

The Holy Spirit indwells our new spirit and He transforms our soul into the image of Jesus Christ…

Our spirit – our new creation – is already transformed into the image of Jesus Christ and can never be “un-transformed” :-)…

It can never sin, it never thinks a wrong thought, never has a wrong desire, always delights in the Law of God in the inner man…

It is incorruptible, because we were born again with Incorruptible Seed…

The Living and Abiding Word of God – Jesus Christ Himself…

We have the Divine Sperm within us – each one of us who know the Lord – and He will never leave us or forsake us…

We are one spirit with Him…

We live in His presence…

His presence is all around us…

We can not escape His presence…

We can not leave His presence…

His presence is always with us…

We are surrounded by His presence…

His protection is over us and the evil one can not touch us…

Our spirit is safe and indestructible in the Hands of Almighty God…

Our souls are being transformed by the renewing of our minds, emotions and wills into conformity with the mind, emotions and will of Jesus Christ…

Our bodies are sanctified by the presence of the Holy Spirit residing in them…

And we are clean by the Word spoken to us by Jesus Christ when He said “Let light shine out of darkness” and when He “called into being that which did not exist” as the scripture says…

God called us into being by the Word of His Power and He sustains us by the Word of His Power so that we are not consumed…

“It is because of the Lord’s great love that we are not consumed for His mercies never fail, they are new every morning, Great is Your Faithfulness” as the scripture says…

We have been blessed beyond all comprehension in the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ…

We have been personally blessed by His effectual call on our lives where He caused us to be born again by the Word of Truth that we might be first fruits of all He created…

We are so blessed…

All that remains is for us to come into the presence of God and enjoy Him for who He is…

He is “altogether lovely, altogether worthy, altogether wonderful to me” as the song says…

He is everything that we have ever wanted, He is everything that we have ever longed for, He is everything that we will ever need…

We have no needs outside of His presence…

He is everywhere and He is with us…

His presence shall go with us and He shall give us rest…

He shall give us peace…

He shall give us provision…

He shall give us comfort…

He shall give us support and wisdom, confidence and direction, guidance and discernment – wisdom – everything we need…

He will give us his peace which transcends all understanding – and He shall go with us and be a Wall of Fire around us…

We are protected in Him, He is protecting us…

We are safe in His Hands…

Underneath are the Everlasting Arms – as the scripture says…

We have a great Saviour – His Name is Jesus Christ…

We and our desires and our hopes for the future and our plans and our dreams and our goals are all thoroughly insignificant against who He is and what He will do in our lives…

When He is in control of our lives we have entered an added dimension of human existence, a new dimension of human existence, a supernatural dimension of human existence where nothing is impossible because nothing is impossible with God…

Nothing is impossible with God…

When God is for us who can be against us?

And God is for us…

He is so for us that He is removing pride from us so that we might walk in His presence all the days of our lives, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in His temple…

He will not let our foot be moved…

The God who guards us does not slumber or sleep…

He is on duty 24 hours a day to keep that which we have committed unto Him against that day, as the scripture says…

We are safe, we are secure in the Rock of All Ages and His Banner over us is Love…

He is so big…

We are so safe…

As He brings us to a place of not striving we see that all along we have been so safe, we just didn’t realise it…

Sin does not stand in His presence, our sins are forgiven us for His Name sake, so our sins don’t stand in His presence, there is nothing we can do to break His presence, He is at work in us to will and to work for His good pleasure and as we receive from Him sin falls off our lives…

We are not to focus on sin, we are to come into His presence without striving and allow Him to do whatever He would like to do in our lives…

No agenda…

Just come…

Just come and receive from the Lord whatever He would like to impart to us of His Person, of His Face as we open up ourselves to seek Him and to seek His Face continually…

We will not seek anything else once we get a grasp on just who our God is – we will just not want to seek anything else, we will cease from all other pursuits and pursue Him alone…

We will be captivated by Him as by the Pearl of Great Price and sell everything we possess to gain Him…

We will serve Him because we love Him and because He is worthy for us to serve Him…

We know Him and we surrender to Him…

We love Him and so we keep coming back into His presence for more of Him…

He becomes our All in All and we delight ourselves in Him…

He is everywhere and He is everything, we do not see anything else…

This is a process and one which is Eternal Life…

It is this process, this relationship that we are called to…

It is coming into His presence with no consciousness of sin – because it is paid for and under the Blood of Jesus – that we live for – to be transformed by the renewing of our minds…

We are in the Hands of God, He is holding us and we are secure…

Thank You Father, Thank You Jesus, Thank You Holy Spirit…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
