God’s Presence Quotes by Mahatma Gandhi, Brian D. McLaren, Gloria Copeland, Nicholas Sparks, Aiden Wilson Tozer, John H. Walton and many others.
Since I was introduced to the practice of God’s presence, which in turn led me into the contemplative way, I have nearly always felt so rich, so blessed, so sincerely full of “enough.”…I believe it is on this robust, overflowing …contemplative pathway that one gains the joy and serenity to be generous.
Sunday morning, before we go to hear the Word of God preached…let us not rush into GodвЂ™s presence careless, reckless, and unprepared, as if it mattered not in what way such work was done. Let us carry with us faith, reverence, and prayer. If these three are our companions, we will hear with profit, and return with praise.
Prayer requires that we stand in God’s presence with open hands, naked and vulnerable, proclaiming to ourselves and to others that without God we can do nothing. As disciples, we find not some but all of our strength, hope, courage, and confidence in God. Therefore, prayer must be our first concern.
This is the first thing the Holy Spirit does in your life. He brings you God’s presence, and when He does, you will no longer be in the dark. The Holy Spirit has a beautiful identity. He is called ‘The Angel of God’s presence.’ He is the One Who brings us the presence of God and makes it real to us.
God’s presence. . . is an inner experience that never changes. It’s a relationship that’s there all the time, even when we’re not paying attention to it. Perhaps the Infinite holds us to Itself in the same way the earth does. Like gravity, if it ever stopped we would know it instantly. But it never does.
It is not in our life that God’s help and presence must still be proved, but rather God’s presence and help have been demonstrated for us in the life of Jesus Christ. It is in fact more important for us to know what God did to Israel, to his Son Jesus Christ, than to seek what God intends for us today.
Worship is about encounter-coming into God’s presence
Prayer is nothing else than a sense of God’s presence
