Exodus 33:13-15: Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.  And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.  And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.
This was Moses asking God to go on the journey with him. I would like us to read this message with rapt attention and hold it securely in your hands throughout this year.
Moses did not ask for signs and wonders or miracles; he asked God to show him His way. God answered by saying that His presence shall go with him.
Many Christians are completely ignorant of the presence of God. Many ministers and pastors know nothing about the power of the presence of God. Anyone who has not experienced the power of God’s presence has no right to stand and talk about Him because such people don’t know Him.
Having the presence of God with us is worth more than riches or fame or power. We can go anywhere when the presence of God is with us. I can go to many places because His presence is with me. I don’t care what direction it is, if the presence of God is there. A sleep is dangerous when the presence of God is absent. In the presence of God, there is fullness of joy but out of His presence, there is frustration, multiple demons, discouragement, sorrow, fear, sickness, sin, suicide, distress, etc.
The question I would like to ask us is this: Do we have the presence of God with us? Or have we lost His presence? More than anything else this year, ensure that you have His presence with you always.
Psalm 51:11: Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy Holy Spirit from me.
This is a powerful prayer. The Psalmist is trying to say that if God wants to take every other thing from him, He can, but God should allow him to always be in His Presence. He says God should not be silent about his matter; even if He wants to discipline him, He can but He should please not remove His Presence from Him.
We need to have the presence of the Lord in our lives; it is a wonderful experience. It is essential in our everyday life.
Moses had several problems with the children of Israel; often they would have stoned him to death then he would remember God’s promise: “My presence shall go with thee and I will give thee rest.”
That is, you can have trouble everywhere, fears, threatening outside. Since you have prayed and you know that the secret of knowing the Lord is being in His presence, nothing will dismay you.
The closer you are to fire, the hotter you become; the farther you move away from fire, the cooler you become. The closer you move to the Lord, the more of His presence you have; the farther you move away from Him, the closer you are to the devil. It is a wonderful thing to be in the presence of the Lord and it is a dangerous thing to be far from Him.
Woe betides the person who moves away from the presence of the Almighty God! When God vomits a person, the person’s enemy will deal ruthlessly with the person. This is a very serious issue and I would advise that you pray the presence of God into your life today.
Genesis 4:16: And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
Genesis 4:13: And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
It is a great punishment to be out of God’s presence. It is good to pray that you will not undergo this kind of punishment. Being struck dead by lightning is better than to undergo this kind of punishment. Falling on a person is better for mountains and rocks than to undergo this kind of punishment. Losing a leg and hand is also better for a person or eye, than to go through it. Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and he allowed envy to push him out of the place of blessing - from the Presence of the Lord.
