One thing Christians forget about is the powerful presence of God. We read the stories in the Bible and think that was just for that time. Jesus tells us that after he returns to heaven his followers will do greater signs than what he did. Why do we doubt the powerful presence of God? We have an almighty God who is capable of miraculous acts. Let’s seek him in our hour of need.
“And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.”
When Solomon dedicated the temple, God did something extraordinary; He filled the building with His presence. It was so powerful the priests were unable to stand. We see similar instances in the Bible. The cloud was present with the Israelites as they traveled through the desert. In Revelation, the Glory of the Lord fills the temple, and no one is able to enter. Don’t underestimate the powerful presence of God.
There is power in his presence. The man from Gadarenes experienced it, the woman with the issue of blood reached out for it, and Solomon prayed for it as he dedicated the temple. We can have the presence of God in the form of the Holy Spirit. He is able to guide us, comfort us, and draw us closer to Jesus. As He convicts us of our sins and we get right with Christ, we will feel that draw. There might even be times in prayer or worship where we feel the strong presence of the Spirit working in our midst. Don’t shy away from it but seek it with all of your heart.
