When God’s presence goes with us, victory follows for sure. In His presence there is healing and deliverance; His presence changes us from glory to glory; He gives us counsel and prepares us to be with Him!! 🙌
Here’s the second part of the blessings we get when God’s presence goes with us!
The enemy will only see fire around us
When God’s presence comes along with us, the enemy cannot come even an inch close to us. For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. Zechariah 2:5. During the Israelites journey, the Lord walked with them as a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. The other tribes could very clearly see the God of Israel walking with them as a fiery pillar. The Presence of God is fiery. When we remain there, the Lord will be around us as a wall of fire and keep us from the evil plans of the enemy. Hence, let us always allow the Presence of God around us!
Exalt us in due time
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 1 Peter 5:6. When the Presence of God is upon us, He will help us to humble ourselves and remain under His Almighty hands. Thereby in due time and season He will exalt us!! Joseph for example, was a young man, who patiently waited for God’s plan and timings to be fulfilled in him.
Throughout his life he was wronged by family, friends and foe. But, the interesting part is, he preserved himself in the fear of God by being in His presence always. God also was with Joseph wherever he went. In due time, God exalted hun to become the next in chief of Egypt 😇
Make us a conqueror
There is no place where God’s presence cannot reach. His presence can be found beneath us too. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them. Deuteronomy 33:27. When mountain like problems and situations come against us like a flood, the Lord promises that the Spirit of God will lift up a standard against them and give us victory. The Lord will thrust out the enemy and say, Destroy them.
Hope of glory
Christ in us, the hope of glory! 🙌 This means when the Presence of God is found within us, the hope of glory, that is Christ, will be seen in us. In this way, we will become the “walking talking miracles” of the gospel of Christ to those who are perishing! God [in His eternal plan] chose to make known to them how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in and among you, the hope and guarantee of [realizing the] glory. Colossians 1:27.
May the Lord help us all!
Be blessed! 💕
