PRAYER: Whoever dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall dwell in the shade of the Almighty

Choosing to be in God's presence is a prudent choice, as it offers eternal joy and fulfillment (Psalm 16:11). As a result, if you are sensible, you will prefer to spend all of your time in His presence. No wonder the Psalmist wrote in Psalm 91:1:

"Whoever dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall dwell in the shade of the Almighty."

Only sin is capable of isolating a person from God's presence. Adam and Eve were compelled to escape God's presence following the fall (Genesis 3:8). Jonah, too, fled God's presence as a result of his disobedience and ended up in the belly of the fish (Jonah 1:3,15,17). When a person flees from the Lord's presence, he is on the verge of perdition.

According to today's Scripture reading, numerous miracles occurred in the presence of the Lord. When you are in God's presence, you will never be fatigued because His characteristics will rub off on you (Isaiah 40:28-29). God is never exhausted, and He is perpetually willing to share His power with those who seek Him. Elijah and Elisha were able to see miracles in His presence because they were aware of this secret. According to 1 Kings 18, Elijah ate a miraculously prepared supper in the sight of God and was so swift and powerful that he not only vanquished four hundred and fifty Baal prophets on Mount Carmel, but also outran King Ahab's chariot. Being in the presence of God endows you with divine courage. Elijah proved this in 1 Kings 18:15.

As God's children, you must always be in God's presence. Even our Lord, Jesus Christ, did so. He never put the Father's presence in jeopardy for any other reason. As reported in Matthew 14:23 and Luke 6:12, Jesus frequently retreated to the hillside to commune with His Father. The early Church, too, loved God's presence in prayer, and whenever they gathered, there were always earth-shaking events (Acts 2:46). Despite the fact that the early disciples spent only three and a half years with Jesus, the entire world knew they were with Him (Acts 4:13).

The more time you spend in God's presence, the more like God you will appear and act (2 Corinthians 3:18).
