The Preserver of My Destiny
The Manifest presence of God
The manifest presence of God will bring change to us and in us. It will release the power of God among us. It will cause sinners to come to repentance. The manifest presence can be experienced in all of us. God can manifest Himself in various ways. It can be a strong encounter, a mighty release of His anointing on our lives, a dream or a vision. It can also be an overwhelming feeling.
God's manifest presence is what believers see and what they know and learn of God. If you are to know God, you have to get a revelation. It is good to know about God but He wants us to know of Him for ourselves. God wants to reveal Himself to us so we will draw closer to Him. God wants us to experience His manifest presence. His presence reveals the power of His presence and glory.
There are three aspects of the presence of God.
1. Omnipresence - God is always there. We might not realize it. David asked the question where can I go from your presence in Psalm 139.
2. Personal Presence of God - God is living on the inside of us. We are temples of God, and He lives in us (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19).
3. Manifest Presence of God - When God manifests His presence, He reveals His glory. God wants us to move beyond just having a consciousness of Him but having a personal encounter.
(Psalm 27:8). (Acts 4:31). (1 Kings 19:11-13).
(Philippians 3: 7-14).
