How to get into Gods presence?
We're going to share a few ways on how to prepare ourselves to get into His presence.
#1 We must seek His presence
12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:12-13)
& what are the benefits of His presence? How can we know it's His presence.
We'll share a few ways to enter Gods presence but first what must we do before
15 But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. 16 Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (2 Corinthians 3:15-17)
11 You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11)
In Gods presence there is liberty & fullness of joy.
#2 We must have a pure heart
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8)
In the Jeremiah 29:13 verse it says "when you search for Me with all your heart".
Having a pure heart is one of the keys to allow us to experience His presence.
#3 Must be thankful
100 Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
3 Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. (Psalm 100:1-4)
Now let's talk a difference between thanksgiving, praise & worship...
Thanking God for who He is
Thanking God for His greatness
Acknowledging Him for His holiness
47 Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples!
Shout to God with the voice of triumph! (Psalm 47:1)
3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
4 Thus I will bless You while I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name. (Psalm 63:3-4)
95 Oh come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
3 For the Lord is the great God,
And the great King above all gods. (Psalm 95:1-3)
Go ahead & meditate on these scriptures on entering Gods presence.
Hope you experience the fullness of joy & liberty in Jesus name :)
