Why the Presence of God Is Vital to Your Spiritual Growth

Note: this is part three of a series. Read part one here and part two here.

Soaking in the Lord’s presence will bring us into the fullness of our destinies, and He needs us to come into that maturity to be ready for the days ahead when He will surely pour out His Spirit. Join us on the The Global Outpouring podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network to learn how this powerful principle could impact your life.

While soaking in His presence, perhaps you will hear a message from His heart in your spirit: words of comfort, instruction or direction. Or maybe it will be an impression that comes without words; you will have an idea, perhaps a concept, a revelation that can close a door from the past and open a new one for your future. Hope ignites in your soul. The need you couldn’t put into words is met, and your faith steps up to accept that God is all you need.

In Him is life—it exudes from Him and penetrates your soul, freeing you from the wages of sin. Truth pours out from Him and destroys lies. Your heart becomes assured and at rest in this confidence: that because He is all His Word says He is, you are also all He says you are. As you rest in His presence, He resets you, from glory to glory.

Sometimes the Holy Spirit points out a place in your life where your old nature that was crucified with Christ is still trying to operate. He ministers an upgrade into that area, helping you to possess a share of the divine nature because He lives within you, and the old ways wither out of existence. As God cleanses your imagination, your mind is renewed, and you begin to grow in the prophetic.

Being in the presence of God in the present opens a window into eternity. You may be caught away to view the glories of your eternal home. You could have visions of biblical events in the past or the future.

In His presence comes the revelation of God’s call on your life. You begin to feel His heart for the lost as His love compels you to share your life in Him with your neighbor or a stranger. Perhaps He will put a nation or people group on your heart, and intercession for His outpouring will come from deep within you, making a difference in the spirit realm over those people. Perhaps He will lead you to go somewhere in His service, and the grace that comes from His presence will cause joyful obedience to well up inside you.

The Holy Spirit fills and refills you, each time transforming your walk and relationship with Him, as you practice His presence.

Grace and peace be multiplied to you from God your Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ as you make His presence a priority in your life. {eoa}
