The only time you are guaranteed rest is in God’s presence

English: Resurrection of Christ

The only time you are guaranteed rest is in God’s presence

“And he said unto Him, if Thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.” (Exodus 33:15)










When Christ is with you, God is with you. Psalm 121:5 says, “The LORD is thy Keeper: The LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.” When Christ is with you, God’s shadow will follow you wherever you go.

Three fishes in an ocean were terrified by some sharks whenever they went swimming. One day, they held a prayer meeting and invited God to be in attendance. When God came down, He asked them what they each wanted. The first fish asked for eyes all over its body so that from a long distance, it could sight the sharks coming. The second fish requested wings to fly whenever it was being chased by the sharks. The third fish simply requested that God should follow it wherever it went. The Lord granted all their requests.

Immediately God left, the first fish realized that all the scales on its body had become eyes. Its new look attracted the sharks and they began to pursue it. From a distance, it sighted the sharks swim fast towards it. Immediately, it leaped into a small pool of water nearby. Safe from the sharks, it began to laugh at the predators. Hours later, however, the pool dried up and it died. The sharks then turned their sight on the second fish. As it was being chased, it flew out of the ocean, and from a safe height began to mock the sharks. Unfortunately, an eagle was flying overhead and, thanking God, snapped up the fish. Meanwhile, the third fish was swimming quietly and enjoying itself. The baby shark told its mother that there was another, seemingly not afraid of them. Now, when the baby shark asked that they go after the fish, its mother cautioned: “Can’t you see the shadow of a man following that fish? If you go near it, you will be killed.”  That was how the third fish survived the sharks. When Christ is with you, there will be no need to fret. He will take care of you. Is Christ with you? Do you feel His presence? Or do you like the first two fishes prefer something else to God’s presence? Moses, like the third fish, chose well; he refused to go anywhere if God would not follow him. Are you going to places without God’s presence? Do not be surprised when you meet with disappointment.

According to Exodus 33:14, the only time you are guaranteed rest is in God’s presence!










May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

God is present everywhere

God is present everywhere

Never alone

“No, I will not abandon you as orphans – I will come to you.” (John 14:P18)

“I feel so alone,” Bev said, “with my husband gone and all my children married. Sometimes I can hardly bear the pain, the anguish. At times it’s as though I am about to suffocate—I am so lonely!”

Bev was in her late 70s. Her husband was dead, and her other family members were involved in their own careers and activities. Though they loved her, they were so busy they seldom saw her to express that love.

I shared with her the good news of the one who loved her so much that He died on the cross for her and paid the penalty for her sins, the one who promised never to leave her once He came.

There in the loneliness of her living room, she bowed with me in prayer and invited the risen living Christ to take up residence in her life, to forgive her, to make her a child of God. When she lifted her face, her cheeks were moist with tears and her heart was made new with joy.

“I feel so different,” she said. “Already I feel enveloped with the sense of God’s presence. His love and His peace.”

As the months passed, it became increasingly evident that she was not alone. He who was with her had been faithful to His promise never to leave her.

Do you feel deserted, alone, rejected? Do you have problems with you family, work, school or health? Whatever may be your need, Jesus is waiting to make His presence real to you.

Your View of God Really Matters …

Do you want to more fully experience His presence? Confess all known sin. Obey His commands. Meditate on His Word. And talk with Him about everything as you go through your day.

What More Does God Say?

Psalm 68:3-6

Because God is ever-present, He is always with me.

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

God Is Holy (Holiness requires separation from sin)

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...

God Is Holy (Holiness requires separation from sin)

“And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus.” (Hebrews 10:19)

In Old Testament times the Israelites worshipped God in a tabernacle, which pictured God’s holiness and His separation from sinful mankind. Any priest who entered God’s tabernacle first had to sacrifice an animal on the Brazen Altar to atone for sin. Next was the Laver in which the priest washed his hands and feet before he appeared before the Lord—once again a symbol of our need for cleansing from sin.

The tabernacle had three sections: the large area of service, the Holy Place, and the Holy of Holies.

The Holy of Holies was the place where God’s presence resided. It was hidden from view by a curtain so heavy that it took four men to move it. Only the High Priest was allowed to enter this place—and only once a year—to offer sacrifices for his own sins and the sins of the people. If anyone else tried, God would strike him dead.

Why was the place of God’s presence in the tabernacle hidden from view? Because God is so holy that no one can look upon His glory and live. No one can approach our holy God without a sacrifice of blood to atone for sin.

This was the reason for Jesus, the Lamb of God, and His sacrifice on the cross. The only thing that can satisfy the judgment of sin demanded by God’s holiness is the shedding of pure, innocent blood. And only Jesus’ blood met this high standard.

Your View of God Really Matters …

Thank God that He has made you holy by the blood of Jesus. Resolve to follow Him today, allowing Him to make you holy.

What More Does God Say?

Hebrews 10:10; John 17:19

Because God is holy, I will devote myself to Him in purity, worship and service.

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Help To Resist Temptation


Temptation (Photo credit: JoelMontes)

Help To Resist Temptation

“Don’t let us yield to temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” (Matthew 6:13)

Satan‘s main strategy with God‘s people has always been to whisper, “Don’t call, don’t ask, don’t depend on God to do great things. You’ll get along fine if you rely on your own cleverness and energy.”

The devil is not terribly frightened of our human efforts, but he knows his kingdom will be damaged when we lift our hearts to God.

Although we can be tempted by our own flesh and by worldly influences, Satan is a major player in our desire to disobey God. Radio Bible teacher David Jeremiah puts temptation in a new light:

Suppose you and one of your friends are on the border of doing something wrong. Both of you know it is wrong. But you are about to do it anyway. But if you should say to your friend, “Go right ahead and do it, but I think you should know that I just heard from heaven and God will be here in a few moments.” Maybe your friend will respond, “Wow, if God is going to be here soon, maybe I will do this tomorrow or next week, but I don’t want to do this if God is going to show up in a few minutes.”

Surprise! God has already shown up. He is here…now! When facing temptation, we should say to ourselves, “This is being carried out in the presence of almighty God.” Meditating on this truth will help give you conviction to face temptation in your life.

I encourage you to practice the presence of God by asking Him to help you resist temptation. The Bible promises that “God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it”. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

Your View of God Really Matters …

The next time you are tempted, remember God’s presence, power, and faithfulness. Resist it. Turn away. Then you will experience God’s peace

More Does God Say?

Corinthians 10:13; James 4:7-8

Because God is ever present, He is always with me.

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

The Lord Your God Will Bless Your Work And Fill Your Barns With Corn. He Will Bless You In The Land That He Is Giving You

Blessed All Round!

Read: Genesis 39:1-6

From the story of Joseph recorded in today’s Bible reading, we learn this truth: God’s presence changes the location of the one who has it. It moves you up and it moves you forward. If God is truly with you, you cannot remain on the same spot for long. If making progress is quite difficult for you, it could be a pointer to the absence of God’s presence. If God’s is with you, He will relocate you from the bottom to the top, from sorrow and depression into joy and hope, and from lack into abundance. May the presence of God promote you in Jesus Christ Name! Amen!

Another truth we learn from this story is that God’s presence can positively affect every area of your life. In Genesis 39:3, everything Joseph did prospered. God’s presence in your life can positively affect you spiritually, physically, mentally, financially, socially and ministry-wise. This implies that the one who has God with him will observe that he or she is making progress in every area of life. 3 John 2  will be a reality in the life of such an individual. Yes, it is possible to be blessed all round! Usually, most believers notice God’s blessing in certain areas while some other areas are left out. The true mark of God’s tangible presence in your life is that every situation in your life responds positively to His Will. Using this standard, can you truly say that God is with you? When people observe the presence of God in a man, they will like to draw close to him. People like to associate with rich, influential and successful people. Although Joseph entered Potiphar’s house as a slave, yet his master later became proud to be associated with him. Today! The presence of God upon your life will cause men and women, friends and foes to take pleasure in associating with you, in Jesus Christ Name!  Amen!


Oh LORD! If truly You are with me, let me move forward in every area of my life, in Jesus Christ Name I pray! Amen!

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

The Power Of Praise And Worship.

The Power of Praise & Worship

By Dr. Dale A. Robbins.

Acts 16:23-26 “And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:
(24) Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
(25) And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
(26) And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.”

This Bible story begins the unjust arrest of Paul and Silas. Because they had cast a spirit of divination out of a girl, the local Philippian authorities beat them and then threw them into a jail cell. Besides the trauma of the severe beating, they were fastened in stocks which clamped their arms and legs in an immobile position, causing cramps and loss of circulation. The atmosphere there was depressing. According to the standards of that day, a prison was more like the resemblance of a dungeon. A dark, damp, stench-ridden place, with no facility for waste or comforts of any kind.

Yet, in spite of the throbbing pain in their bodies and the disheartening atmosphere, at midnight Paul and Silas were heard praying and singing praises to God! What a strange sound this must have been to the other prisoners, who were used to only hearing the groans or cursings of those who had been beaten.

Then suddenly, there was an earthquake that shook the prison! The doors flung open, and amazingly, the bonds of Paul, Silas, and every other prisoner were released! What caused this mighty discharge of power?

Praise Elevates us into God’s Presence and Power

Paul and Silas knew the secret of how to lift their hearts above their troubles and enter into God’s presence and power. Through praise and worship their hearts were raised into the joyous presence and peace of God, and provided God a channel for his power to operate in their circumstances.

The Bible says that God inhabits in the praises of His people (Psalms 22:3). In other words, God “dwells” in the atmosphere of His praise. This means that praise is not merely a reaction from coming into His presence – Praise is a vehicle of faith which brings us into the presence and power of God! Praise and worship is the “gate-pass” which allows us to enter the sacredness of His glory. The psalmist writes, “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name” (Psalms 100:4).

This corresponds with Jesus’ teaching, that His presence will inhabit the gathering of believers who congregate in His name: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). A “gathering in His name” means that Jesus must be the focus, the center of the assemblage. He must be the one preached about, sung about — the one praised and worshiped. “I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee” (Hebrews 2:12). Consequently, Christ’s presence, along with His virtue and anointing, is manifested in this type of gathering.

Have you ever noticed when “gifts of the Spirit” operate in a church service? The power and anointing of the Holy Spirit usually becomes evident, subsequent to a time of worship and praise. Some think that worship is a response after the Holy Spirit moves upon them. However, it’s the other way around. God’s presence responds when we move upon Him with worship! Lifting up Jesus Christ through praise and worship invokes the Lord’s presence and power to flow in our midst.

What is Praise?

Praise means “to commend, to applaud or magnify.” For the Christian, praise to God is an expression of worship, lifting-up and glorifying the Lord. It is an expression of humbling ourselves and centering our attention upon the Lord with heart-felt expressions of love, adoration and thanksgiving. High praises bring our spirit into a pinnacle of fellowship and intimacy between ourselves and God — it magnifies our awareness of our spiritual union with the most high God. Praise transports us into the realm of the supernatural and into the power of God. “Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance” (Psalms 89:15).

There are many actions involved with praise to God — verbal expressions of adoration and thanksgiving, singing, playing instruments, shouting, dancing, lifting or clapping our hands. But true praise is not “merely” going through these motions. Jesus spoke about the hypocrisy of the pharisees, whose worship was only an outward show and not from the heart. “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me” (Matthew 15:8). Genuine praise to God is a matter of humility and sincere devotion to the Lord from within.

Unpretentious praise and worship pleases the Lord. He delights in the love and devotion of His children. According to the scriptures, the various expressions of praise bring blessing to the Lord. He eagerly awaits the fragrance of our affections, desiring to manifest His sweet presence and power in our midst. “…the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:23).

Praise to God is a Lifestyle

All too often, praise to God is something that many people leave at church, an event that happens only when they come together with other Christians. However, praise should be a part of a believers lifestyle, inter-mingled as a part of their daily prayer-life. At work, in the car, at home in bed, or anywhere; praise to the Lord brings the refreshing of the Lord’s presence, along with His power and anointing. “…I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1).

Praise is an expression of faith, and a declaration of victory! It declares that we believe God is with us and is in control of the outcome of all our circumstances (Romans 8:28). Praise is a “sacrifice,” something that we offer to God sacrificially, not just because we feel like it, but because we believe in Him and wish to please Him. “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name” (Hebrews 13:15).

Praise Sends the Enemy Running

Since praise manifests God’s presence, we also realize that praise repels the presence of the enemy, Satan. An atmosphere which is filled with sincere worship and praise to God by humble and contrite hearts is disgusting to the Devil. He fears the power in the name of Jesus, and flees from the Lord’s habitation in praise. “Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God” (Psalms 50:23).

When the children of Judah found themselves outnumbered by the hostile armies of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, King Jehoshophat and all the people sought the Lord for His help. The Lord assured the people that this would be His battle. He told them to go out against them, and He would do the fighting for them. So what did the children of Judah do? Being the people of “praise” (Judah actually means Praise), and knowing that God manifests His power through praise, they sent their army against their enemies, led by the praisers!

So on they went, ahead of the army declaring, “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endureth forever!” And the scripture says, “…when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten” (2 Chronicles 20:22).

When God’s people begin to praise His name, it sends the enemy running! I challenge you to become a person of praise, and you will experience the release of the power of God!

Some Biblical Expressions of Praise

Declaring of thanks (Heb. 13:15)
Clapping hands and shouting (Psalms 47:1)
Musical instruments and dancing (Psm. 150:4)
Singing praise songs (Psalms 9:11)
Psalms, hymns, & spiritual songs (Eph. 5:19-20)
Making a joyful noise (Psalms 98:4)
By lifting our hands (Psalms 134:2)
By being still (Psalms 4:3-5, 46:10)
By being loud (Psalms 33:3, 95:1-6)

The Transforming Presence Of God.

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

Repent ye therefore, and be
converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing
shall come from the presence of the Lord (Acts 3:19)

It’s such a
blessing when believers come together in unity to worship the Lord. The Lord’s
presence in such an environment is uplifting and transforming; you’ll never
remain the same afterwards. Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here…..” (Matthew 17:4). He enjoyed
the Lord’s presence so much that he didn’t want to leave. This experience
transformed him forever. In fact, he referred to it many years later in his
letter to the churches (2 Peter 1:16-18).

The Bible
says, “The hills melted like wax at the
presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth”
 (Psalm 97:5). The power of God will become
more real to you and all your problems will melt and fade away. Put differently;
God becomes bigger than everything else.

The psalmist
described the anointing of the Holy Spirit as “…..the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountain
of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore”

(Psalm 133:3). The presence of God will transform you forever. In that presence
is the answer and solution to your nagging concerns and doubts. In that
presence, you’ll see a new picture of yourself the way God sees you in His
Word. So you see, you can’t trade that presence for anything in this world. This
is why you cannot afford to miss your church services or meetings.

God isn’t so
concerned about the number of the people gathering. The Lord Jesus said, “For where two or three are gathered
together in my name, there am I in the midst of them”
 (Matthew 18:20).
