Practicing the Presence of God
Various Passages: Psalm 16:11; John 14:15-18, 25-27; Romans 12:1; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
The first and primary goal of the Christian life is to know God. (John 17:3)
The daily goal of the Christian life is to be with God all throughout our day.
We must be intentional in creating an awareness of God’s Presence in our daily habits of life.
HOW DO WE REDIRECT OUR MINDS BACK TO THE PRESENCE OF GOD?
- Begin and end your day focusing on God (Mark 1:35; Matthew 14:23)
- Present your everyday routines as an offering to God (Romans 12:1)
- Pray all throughout your day (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
- Rejoice always
- Give thanks to God
- Use your circumstances to draw you into His presence
