In His presence is fullness of joy, peace and soundness of mind. You find rest and restoration in His presence. We speak so much about entering into His presence but a lot of us have not experienced Him in a new dimension or found that place of rest, settlement and dwelling place yet. There is so much satisfaction and abundance of all that He has in store for you in His presence. So how do you enter into His presence?
Before we come into His presence, if you hold any grudges against anyone, go and seek forgiveness from the person before you enter into His presence. When someone offends you, hold no grudges, bitterness or anger against the person but understand they they have their flaws. Forgive them so that you are not hindered from gaining divine access into His presence. “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you Matthew 6:14. Nail every sinful nature on the cross as you surrender completely to God, permitting Christ to take absolute control (Galatians 5: 19-24, Colossians 2:13-15).
HOW TO ENTER IN HIS PRESENCE
Praise and Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving and praise is one of the keys to unlocking the doorway to the heavenly realm that permits you grand entrance as His Prince, Princess, Royal Priesthood and Son or Daughter who has an inheritance in His Kingdom. Let your mouth be filled with thanksgiving and praise as the Lord derives so much joy in your rejoicing for who He is, all He has done yesterday, today and forever more. Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name Psalm 100:1,2,4 .
Worship is an act of submission and surrendering your all to the Lord God. Worship is an act of sacrifice that ushers us into His presence. Let us go into His tabernacle; let us worship at His footstool Psalm 132:7. When you come before His presence you stand in awe of Him, in humble adoration, forgetting all your problems and secret petitions, you know with a firm assurance that Heavenly Father has heard your cry.
Blood of Jesus
Jesus came down on earth in human form on our behalf to sacrifice His life for us. Through the power of His resurrection on the cross where Jesus was pierced and bruised for our transgression and iniquities has granted us divine direct access to His throne (Isaiah 53:3-10, Colossians 1:19-20, 1 John 1:7). The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness. It is through the blood that you enter into the holy of holies. Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption Hebrews 9:12.
The Holy Spirit, our standby, counselor, strengthener, helper and comforter connects with your spirit in unity guiding you into His presence. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father Ephesians 2:18. There is no condemnation for those who in Christ Jesus, His spirit is life that guarantees you unlimited divine access into His presence (2 Corinthians 2:10-12). It is the spirit that reveals the heart of the Father, His plans and purpose over your lives to you.
The Word is Jesus that brings life to every dead situation (John 1:1-4). His Word is alive, powerful and a double sword that pierces the spirit and soul, discerns right and wrong and the intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). As you meditate on the Word, Christ in you the hope of glory is reignited and refined like fire burning in your heart that draws you more intimately with the Lord ( Psalm 39:3, Colossians 1:27, Joshua 1:6-10).
There is much to write about but the Lord searches and knows the heart. As you enter into His presence, position yourselves in the right place of righteousness with the right heart and you shall reap love, peace, joy and overflowing blessings
