Have you ever wondered what it means to truly live in the presence of God? To be so intimately connected to the divine that you carry His presence with you wherever you go? It’s a concept that’s not only profound but also incredibly empowering. And it’s all right here in the Bible, waiting to be discovered and embraced.
Serve the LORD with gladness;— Psalms 100:2 (NKJV)
Come before His presence with singing.
This verse beckons us to “come before His presence with singing.” But what does that really mean? Is it just about singing hymns and praises in church?
In truth, it’s so much more. It’s an invitation to recognize that, as part of the New Covenant, we are already seated with Him in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). Yes, you read that right — we’re not just striving to get into God’s presence; we are already there in our spirit.
Consider this. You’re sitting in a room flooded with sunlight. You don’t need to strive to bring the sun into the room. It’s already there, bathing everything in its warm glow. In the same way, God’s presence dwells within you. You’re not seeking to bring Him near. He’s already with you.
Now, here’s the kicker: Since we’re already in His presence, we’ve already entered it. We live there! It’s a truth that can revolutionize your perspective on life. It means that you carry the presence of God within you every single day. You’re not separated from Him. You’re intimately connected. Everywhere you go, you bring His presence with you.
So, what do we do with this revelation? Instead of trying to get into God’s presence, we can let it out from within our spirits. We let His love, grace, and power flow through us. We become vessels of His presence in this hurting world. We bring healing, hope, and light to those who desperately need it.
It’s an inside-out thing instead of trying to work it from the outside-in.
So, the next time you sing praises, remember that it’s not just a song. It’s a declaration of the truth that you live in His presence. And as you step out into the world, carry that awareness with you. You are a carrier of God’s presence, a beacon of His love, and a source of comfort for those in need. It’s time to let His presence shine through you and transform the world around you.
