Psalms 46:1 – God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
God is a very PRESENT help in trouble. The presence of God isn’t just a religious idea or doctrine. The presence of God is the presence and reality of an actual, powerful loving being with me always.
Matthew 28:20 (Amplified Bible) – Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).
I love this. He is with me always, all the days, perpetually, uniformly and on every occasion. This means that no matter how I feel or what is going on, He is there the same. I can talk to Him and trust in Him. I can by faith treat this scripture as true and walk in His presence perpetually, uniformly and on every occasion. When I do this and put my faith in Him, I will find Him there just as He said.
Benefits of His Presence:
Psalm 16:11 – You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Fullness of joy, pleasures forevermore, the path of life – are all found in His presence.
Acts 3:20 – …so that times of refreshing may come form the presence of the Lord… There are times of refreshing from His presence.
Psalm 31:20 – In the shelter of your presence you hide them from human plots; you hold them safe under your shelter from contentious tongues. In His presence is safety, a place to hide, even from words (or thoughts)
