The Bible says that God has put an awareness of Himself inside of every person, but that many deny Him instead of seeking Him. People deny Him because they don’t want to be submissive and obedient to an almighty, all knowing God, they want to run their own lives.
Deuteronomy 4:29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.
How do you search for Him with all of your heart and all your soul? One way that is very effective is to attend and participate in a corporate prayer event. In Matthew 18:19-20 Jesus says,
“Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”
2 or 3 gathered in my name, and they agree about what they ask. “Asking” and “Gathering” that is a corporate prayer time, and Jesus says that He is at such an event. God is omnipresent, He is everyplace, but He manifests His presence at times and places. As the early church fathers would say, “He makes Himself felt by us” that is we sense His presence in our spirit. Psalms 16:11 says, ” In Your presence is fullness of joy”. I sense His presence by an unexplained heightened sense of joy. It happens to me at corporate prayer times like JBC is having this week from 5 am to 10 am and 5 pm to 10 pm Monday through Friday.
“If you search for me you will find me”, Sitting in the prayer room today has been such a powerful experience of being in the presence of God. I wish so many more would seek Him with me.
