The Power of the Lord's Presence Preached By Pastor Siani HarpalPsalm 16:11
Topic: Power of the Lord's Presence
We see in the Bible the importance of the presence of God. David knew the importance of the presence of the Lord . That is the reason David says in Psalm 51:11 " Lord do not cast me away from your presence...." . Again David says in Psalm 16:11 " ..In your presence is fullness of joy..."
Moses says in Exodus 33:15 " If your presence is not with me , I won't take single step.."
When the Lord's presence is in our midst, no one can harm. But without him, we are helpless, we can not do anythings. God's presence was so evident in Abrahm's life Genesis 21:22 ; Gen 12: 1-3, God promised Joshua that no enemy could stand ( Joshua 1:5-6), God told Gideon Judges 6:12,14" The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valour, go in this thy might and thou shall save Israel " . God warned Jeremiah that the whole nation would turn against him and reject his prophets, yet God promised Jeremiah 15:20 " I will make you to this people a fortified bronze wall and they will fight against you but they will not prevail against you, for I am with you to save you and deliver you, says the Lord. God told Isaiah do not fear for I am with you ...Isaiah 43:1-5
Friends , we can understand how important it is the presence of God in our lives.
