Bible Study for Ministry, Christian Women, and The Pastor's Wife ~ I Am in His Presence, Part 6
Psalms 16: 11 "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."
Ever meditated or pondered or just thought about - whatever you choose to call it - how important being in God's presence really is? Are there other verses about the importance of being in His presence? Here are some to ponder today.
And, if you missed yesterday's post, please do back and read and then practice His presence.
2 Chronicles 20:9 "If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help."
Psalms 9:3 "When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence."
Psalms 31:20 "Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues."
Psalms 51:11 "Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me."
Psalms 139:7 "Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?"
Psalms 140:13 "Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence." (Note on this one - there is giving of thanks AND there is dwelling in His presence; not just coming for an occasional visit!)
Isaiah 64:1-3 "Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence! When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence." (Note - do you think there is power in His presence?)
Be blessed in The Name above every name, Jesus! I know I am!

We are nine days away from Thanksgiving. Many people go Christmas shopping Thanksgiving weekend. You have the rare opportunity to stuff your stockings with a very special gift - a special edition of the book, The Truth is My Only Recourse...is God with your name on the front cover and your forward (short, maybe 250-400 words) on the inside. Some folks write about the book, which I will give you the pdf file for free here, some write about what God means to them and how He has helped them, some write about their own ministry. Download now and get that forward to me by Thanksgiving. Oh, by the way, you can give the pdf file away to others, and your special edition book is the same price as the non-special edition paperback (Unless you need a bunch of them!). Details here.
