My Presence


 God’s Presence and Rest

And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest Deuteronomy 33:14

For you shall not go out with haste, Nor go by flight; For the LORD will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard. Isaiah 52:12

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

When we are surrounded by His presence and when His presence goes before us at all times we are truly blessed. This promise is given by Lord Jesus Christ Who created this universe and all that are in it. But, we must draw  close to Him and  be prayer minded in everything we do. God has ordained victory for us through the blood of Jesus Christ, through the name of Jesus Christ. The blood that He shed for us on the cross. We sing songs of victory through the blood of Jesus Christ. According to Revelation 22:4 we know  “His name shall be on their foreheads” The Lord writes His name on the foreheads of the people who overcome. The word of God tells us that He swallowed death (Isaiah 25:8).

In Colossians 2:15 it say that the Lord defeated the devil and his hosts at the cross. The Lord Jesus Christ told us, “In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).  As a result we are not to be disheartened for the Lord will give us victory.  We shall have victory by the cross. The Lord defeated the devil and overcame his works by the cross. He tasted death for each one of us and has opened the heaven for us. God shall bestow all the blessings on us through Lord Jesus Christ. The word of God also tells us that the Lord blessed the servants of Isaac when they dug wells of Abraham, Isaac’s father and they found a well of running water. (Genesis 26:19). Similarly, the Lord shall bless us and the people who work for us. He will bless them for our sake and prosper them.

The worldly life is an evil one. It is full of troubles and sufferings. Yet, those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing (Psalm 34:10). He has the power to say to the waves, “This far you may come, but no farther, and here your proud waves must stop!” (Job 38:11). What He speaks will be done. What He commands will stand fast (Psalm 33:9).  Job was a devout man who shunned evil. The Bible says he was the greatest man in the East. God had blessed him because he feared God and followed His ways diligently. But he lost all his children, possessions, and cattle in a day! Like adding fuel to the fire, he was struck with painful boils all over his body. His pain and agony was indescribable. But, Job was steadfast in his faith and said, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him” (Job 13:15). This indomitable faith in God made Him give Job twice as much as he had before (Job 42:10).

Even though afflictions and problems may rise like the waves of the sea. Storms may lash and waves may strike. But we are  never to  lose heart. Our Lord rules over the raging of the sea and stills its rising waves (Psalm 89:9). It is the will of Father God that we should not lack in any good thing in life. The love of parents, relatives, friendship of close friends, excellence in studies, care of parents are all desires that God wants to fulfill for us. We can trust in the Lord Jesus Christ at all times. Just as He delivered Job from his many afflictions, the Lord will deliver us from our afflictions. Peace and joy shall abound in our life.

Jesus told that when the people of this world give good gifts to their children, the Father God Who is the source of goodness will surely give every good thing in abundance to those who ask Him (Matthew 7:11). When we ask God for wisdom, He will surely bestow it upon us.  James told us  “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him”(James 1:5). So, we are to pray fervently and God will bless us with wisdom and every good thing! Our loving Heavenly Father is  the source of every good thing and just for the asking He fill our life with  His  goodness in abundance. He will remove all our lack. He will fill us with more of His love, knowledge and wisdom and understanding for we are His trusting children.  He will bless us and make us blessing to the world.  His word is true:

“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Matthew 7:11

“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” Luke 11:13

For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations,  And make the desolate cities inhabited. Isaiah 54:3

“As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt,  I will show them wonders.” Micah 7:15

God who doesn’t change and has not changed and has answered the prayers of many and blessed them with protection and prosperity will answer our prayers and bless us with His protection and goodness.  He will enlarge our borders and fill it with peace. He will never put to shame those who trust in Him.  He will show us wonders and will remove all our lacks and fill our life with goodness in abundance.

How God is very good and great. He is the One who never makes a mistake and never delays. He loves us. But it is necessary that us should wait patiently for Him to act.  We should also wait for Him. He will take all responsibilities regarding our future. The Lord will neither forget nor forsake us. The word of God’s tells us that once when David set out for battle against Philistines, the Lord said, “And it shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly. For then the Lord will go out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines” (2 Samuel 5:24). David waited for God to take His move. The Lord fought for him and he was victorious. Be not be troubled over anything. God will go before us and do everything for us in perfection. His word is true:

For You will save the humble people, But will bring down haughty looks.  For You will light my lamp; The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.  For by You I can run against a troop, By my God I can leap over a wall.  As for God, His way is perfect;  The word of the LORD is proven;  He is a shield to all who trust in Him. For who is God, except the LORD?  And who is a rock, except our God?  It is God who arms me with strength,  And makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places.  Psalm 18:27-33

The thoughts of the righteous are right, But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.  The words of the wicked are, “Lie in wait for blood,”  But the mouth of the upright will deliver them.  The wicked are overthrown and are no more,  But the house of the righteous will stand. Proverbs 12:5-7

God will always remember us because the Lord Jesus Christ is a loving God. The Bible says He is a compassionate and merciful person. “(For the LORD your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them” (Deuteronomy 4:31).   He will neither forget us nor forsake us. He will never forget the covenant He made with us. Why? Because He is full of mercy.

No matter what our negative circumstance might be the Lord Jesus Christ loves us and cares for us. We can place all our requests at the feet of the Lord who is very humble and understanding  knowing that He is the One Who gives all riches and wealth, The Bible says, “As for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, and given him power to eat of it, to receive his heritage and rejoice in his labour this gift of God!”(Ecclesiastes 5:19; 3:13; 2:24). All these blessings come to us from the hands of the One Whose love surpasses the love of a mother.

When the Lord Jesus lived in this world, the glory which was in Him was manifested when Zacchaeus, who was hiding in a tree, looked at His face. The Lord called him by name and Zacchaeus came down and his life was transformed.  And because Jesus Christ is the same today, we will see that same glory of God, His works and the power of His resurrection. The Lord will deal with all who afflicted us; remove the afflictions and appoint us for abundant praise and fame in every place where we were put to shame.  Yes. the Lord shall bless us with abundant blessings. “The LORD bless you out of Zion, and may you see the good of Jerusalem All the days of your life” (Psalm 128:5).  As the song tells us by Audrey Meier:

It Matters To Him About You

Although He has millions of stars to think about
Although the sun, the moon and the stars are in His care
How wonderful to know, wherever you may go
He can be reached just by a whispered praye

It matters to Him about you
Your heartaches your burdens He shares
Regardless you may do He wants you He loves you He cares

It matters to Him about you
Believe it because it’s true
If we cling to His hand He will understand

It matters to Him about you
Your heartaches your sorrows He cares
Regardless of what you may do He wants you He loves you He cares

It matters to Him about you
Believe it because it’s true
If we cling to His hand He will understand
