How easy it is to take God’s presence for granted. If we are not careful, we will take God’s presence lightly as if He were any other person. God’s presence is not to be played with. One of the most precious benefits we have as children of God is to enjoy His presence.
The Philistines thought they had an upper hand on Israel because they took the Ark of the Covenant, which represented the presence of God. The problem was The Almighty God cannot and will not be contained in an unholy place or vessel. When they took the Ark and put it in their temple next to their god, each day they found their god on the ground.
Even the people who held onto the Ark found themselves under attack. The truth is that the power of God is superior to all other gods. Our God knows this but do we? God’s presence and power are unparalleled. God has made that power available to you today.
Receive that power into your life and let that power flow from you to everyone you encounter. When God’s power flows through you, it will transform situations around you. That’s when healing happens and people are set free. This power is available to you right now!
