The manifested presence of Creator God is a awesome experience, and one that shouldn’t be taken for granted, or thought of lightly.
This experience with God is available for his creation on a daily basis, if we choose for our lives to be that way. There however are a few requirements that must be met first before you can really benefit from God in this personal, and intimate way.
1. You must have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Savior, and have a relationship with Him.
2. Have the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, I don’t believe this is a concrete requirement, but God does honor his Holy Spirit within man. “where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”.
Here’s the list:
A. During your personal prayer time, confess any known, or unknown sins you may have. Ask God for forgiveness of sins you may have committed. This is not a act of commendation, but a act of accepting God’s forgiveness, and a knowing within yourself, that he loves you unconditionally.
B. Began to praise, and thank God from your heart. Praise him for who he is in your life, and thank him for your blessings, and for his faithfulness towards you, your family, ministry, life etc…
C. Began to pray in the Holy Spirit, this is a way that you can began to charge up your spiritual batteries. I doing this act, you began to become more sensitive to the presence of the lord. And the atmosphere were you are, becomes a place where God can come in and dwell.
D. Play soft anointed worship music, any anointed gospel singer will do. Current christian artist are fine also. The main thing you want to get right in this step is the anointing of the music that is playing.
E. Stand in silence, and give reverence to God, think about his power, love, mercy, and grace that he shows towards you. Make sure your mind is totally focused on Him, and make sure to remove all distractions.
F. Clap your hands, dance, praise, and sing your songs unto the Lord. Many times this act of worship will be coming from your heart, and spirit, which will be all led by the Holy Spirit.
*remember, don’t give up if God’s presence hadn’t showed up yet. I can assure you that the Lord will come to you, and you will began to experience the awesome “Presence of God”. Remember to be sincere when following these steps I’ve laid out for you in this article*.
