About This Message

 

I am a God who is everywhere and not in one place. Do you not know that I am everywhere in heaven and on earth?
Jeremiah 23:24 (GN)

Where can I go to escape Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? 8 If I go up to heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, You are there.
Psalm 139:7-8 (CSB)

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39 (CSB)

If I live at the eastern horizon [or] settle at the western limits,10 even there Your hand will lead me; Your right hand will hold on to me.
Psalm 139:9-10 (CSB)

If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me, and the light around me will become night” 12even the darkness is not dark to You. The night shines like the day; darkness and light are alike to You.
Psalm 139:11-12 (CSB)

God’s Presence…
1. Comforts Me When I’m Afraid

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and the rivers will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, and the flame will not burn you.
Isaiah 43:2 (CSB)

I am always aware of the Lord’s presence; he is near, and nothing can shake me. And so I am thankful and glad, and I feel completely secure…
Psalm 16:8-9 (GN)

God’s Presence…
2. Helps Me When I’m In Need

Keep your life free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for he himself has said, I will never leave you or abandon you. 6 Therefore, we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
Hebrews 13:5-6 (CSB)

I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
Hebrews 13:5-6 (CSB)

I don’t say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I find myself. 12 I know how to make do with little, and I know how to make do with a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content—whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. 13 I am able to do all things through him who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:12-13 (CSB)

God’s Presence…
3. Empowers Me When I’m Tempted

No temptation has come upon you except what is common to humanity. But God is faithful; he will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to bear it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (CSB)

Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God?
1 Corinthians 6:19 (CSB)

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
Hebrews 4:13 (NIV)

God’s Presence…
4. Assures Me When I’m Alone

The Lord is the one who will go before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or abandon you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”
Deuteronomy 31:8 (CSB)

You reveal the path of life to me; in your presence is abundant joy; at your right hand are eternal pleasures.
Psalm 16:11 (CSB)
