KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 28:20 KJV” Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen”.
Our key scripture assures us of the Lord’s presence with us wherever we go. What then is this idea of carrying His presence wherever we go? Jesus has assured us of His abiding presence yet many Christians do not experience His presence in many situations. Why is this so? Our Lord Jesus in His capacity as God is everywhere at every time, but His manifested presence is not everywhere. His manifested presence depends on you and I. We must carry His presence around.
HOW do we carry His presence alongside with us? God and His word are one. God is in His word. When a man believes in the word and acts on the word, God who is the word and, in His word, would act according to what the word says.
John 14:21 KJV ” He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him”. God manifests in accordance to our adherence to the word.
You can always be sure of His presence to help, bless or provide for you as you trust His word. His word is the portal(door) that allows His presence into our midst. To carry His presence with you, you must hold strongly to what the word says. In Matt 14:29 Peter acted on the word and so He had His presence that carried Peter on the water. The moment he lost the word, Peter lost His presence and began to sink. It is not His physical presence that matters, but your trust in His word.
I carry the presence of the Lord wherever I go. I am not uncertain whether He would show up or not, because, I have His word in my heart and act on the word. I conquer every challenge because He is ever with me.
John 6:63 KJV” It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life”.
Jeremiah 1:12 NET “Then the LORD said, “You have observed correctly. This means I am watching to make sure my threats are carried out.”
