To experience God’s Presence is to experience the shining of God’s Face: The Ability of God to be “present” with human beings. We know God is Omnipresent (God is Present everywhere at the same time). Let use me use this simple illustration:
- The Bible Tells that, ‘Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost’ (1 Cor 6: 19).
- Let say you are God. I’m believer who owns a house (my Temple).
- We are friends so you (God) to live in house (my Temple,
- so all the time you (God) you are in the house (even though we are not in the room room) – that is equivalent to “God is Omnipresent”.
- However, when you (God) come to my room or into the living room talk face-2-face with me, that is “God’s presence”

HOW DO YOU EXPERIENCE GOD’S PRESENCE?
One Popular American tele-evangelist said, and I quote: “when you pray God Sends an Angel, but you praise He Himself Comes…When prayed an Angel Brought the Answer (Dan 10: 10-12), when the imprisoned Apostle Paul & Silas started singing praises God Came to prison to Break them free (Acts 16: 25-26)
It is an undisputable truth that the needs of man in this life are numerous. There seem to be a lot to worry about: food, clothing, shelter, employment, money, family etc. The moment one of the needs is met, another need arises; such is life. It is therefore quite interesting for the Psalmist to declare that unlike all other people, he had only one need. He expressed that as for him, all he needed in this life was The Presence of God. He continued by saying that after making the Sovereign Lord his Shelter in life, he had a good cause to praise God for all the things God had Done for him.
That implies that he sought earnestly for God’s Presence, and all other things pertaining to life and success were Added to him. Know that God is more than enough: God is all you need in life. The reason is that when God Comes into a person’s life, He Comes in with a complete package of Blessings of good health, long life, beautiful family, peace, prosperity, hope and above all, eternal life.
Desire God’s Presence passionately, cherish His Presence with all your heart, because God’s Presence is all we need. I have tried and tested and of a truth, God’s presence is all we need in life. May you have a practical experience of this truth, Amen.
Heavenly Father, thank You very much for making Your Presence accessible to us. Your presence is all I need LORD. Continue to be with me always,
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
