Text: Ecclesiastes 9:4; 1 Kings 2:26-27
God’s Manifest Presence is one main manifestation of God that satan does not have a counterfeit for. It takes having God to have His Presence. You cannot claim you have God’s Manifest Presence without having God at the center of it. The Lord describes it to me this way some time ago. He said, if you enter a shop that has an air conditioning unit from the hot sun. You will definitely be visited and ushered in by the cool air in the shop. This cool air immediately begins to work on your body, imparting ease and removing the harsh effect of the hot atmosphere outside. These are all happening to you because there is an air conditioning unit in the shop. It is the presence of the air conditioning unit in the shop that has created the atmosphere in that shop.
It is the same with God’s Manifest Presence. The Presence and atmosphere are there because God is there. Without God, you won’t get that Presence. Satan cannot get God and cannot get anyone like God Almighty, so he can’t fake it. This Presence is filling our environment. God is manifesting Himself around us. He is manifesting in our lives so all around us can see His Glory on us. He will also manifest to people when they come around us. People will encounter His Presence when they come around us. They will hear His Voice when they come around us. They will find healing just by coming around us.
Many will notice that it when they are around you that they make progress. They will notice that things move faster for them because they have been meeting with you in the past few days. They will notice that all dead things around them are coming alive just because they had dinner with you and went visiting with you the next day. They will see clearly that there is an extension of grace to them and in their lives because they are walking with you. This is God’s Manifest Presence working wonders around us in our world. Each believer’s world would come to believe and accept God in your life. Your world is made up of all you relate with.
- Father, fill my world with Your Manifest Presence and let all encounter You around me in Jesus Mighty Name
- Father, let all in the world encounter Your Manifest Presence around me and have mighty testimonies of Your Goodness in Jesus Mighty Name
