Inviting God’s Presence

But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel. -Psalm 22:3

Unquestionably, one of the most remarkable and exciting things about honest and sincere praise is taught here: praise will bring the presence of God.  

Although God is present everywhere, there is a distinct manifestation of His rule which enters the environment of praise. Here is the remedy for times when you feel alone, deserted, or depressed. Praise! Let this truth create faith and trust, and lead to deliverance from satanic harassments, torment, or bondage. However simply, compose your song and testimony of God’s goodness in your life. 

The result: God enters! His presence will live (take up residence) in our lives. The Hebrew word translated “inhabit” means “to sit down, to remain, to settle, or marry.” In other words, God does not merely visit us when we praise Him, but His presence abides with us and we partner with Him in a growing relationship. 

Today, let us invite God’s presence into our immediate situation. He wants to come and abide where we are right now!
