The Power of the Lord's Presence Preached By Pastor Siani Harpal

Psalm 16:11

Description:

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. 

Blessings of the Presence of God in our lives: 

1. Peace Exo 33:14-17 , John 14:27

2. Protection Isaiah 43:1-5 ; Joshua 1:5

3. Help Isaiah 41:10-13

4. Victory Jeremiah 20:10-11, Job 5:12-14

5. Wisdom I Samuel 18:12-15, Matthew 10:16

6. Success Genesis 39:23, Psalm 1:1-3

7. Pathway Isaiah 45:1-3

8. People Genesis 39:21

9. Power Mark 16:20 , Acts 19:11-20

10. Privilege Isaiah 57:15, Jeremiah 9:23-24

11. Courage Acts 4:13

 

It is possible to loose God's presence 

1. Exodus 33:2-3 " But I will not go with you because you are a stiff necked people....

2. If not love God and obey His teachngs John 14: 23-24

3. If you do not seek Him  2 Chronicle 15:3 

 

Thank you and God bless you !

Isaiah 65:24,  And it shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer and while they are yet speaking I will hear. 

2 Corinthians 12:7-10 Paul prayed for healing and God said NO

The one prayer of a sinner that God promises to hear is Luke 18:13 God be merciful to me a sinner See also 2 Peter 3:9

We will never learn to pray by reading books on the subject. We must pray. Be sure to thank HIM constantly for answered prayers.
