The Presence of God is in Your Spirit

The Presence of God is in Your Spirit

In the Old Testament, the tabernacle of Moses is divided into three parts: the outer court, the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. There is a veil that separates the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. The Holy of Holies is only accessible by the High Priest once a year, and it is not without the blood of slaughtered animals. The way to the Holy of Holies was not yet made manifest then, while the first tabernacle was still standing.

Today, Jesus has opened a new and living way for us to access the presence of God, by the blood of His own sacrifice, and He also being our Great High Priest. Just as the veil was torn in two, Jesus’ body was torn open to give us free and fresh access to the Father.

Today, the Holy of Holies is in us. Our spirit is the dwelling place of God. His very Presence is in us. His Presence is like rain to us, all refreshing. Times of refreshing comes from His presence.

We enjoy His invaluable Presence daily, whether it is in prayer, praise and worship, times of waiting upon Him or even listening to His word being preached. His message and teaching shall drop as rain unto us, and His sayings and speech shall flow as the dew.

What a privilege to be carrying His Presence everywhere we go. Where His Presence goes, blessings flow. Wherever you are, your presence is special because of His presence in you!
