FOCUSED ON HIS PRESENCE
God delights in us and has always desired to be with us. We focus on His presence because we have discovered He is focused on us.
(Eph. 1:4-5; Zeph. 3:17; John 6:44; Jer. 31:3; Ps. 65:4)
Our first ministry is to God. When we recognize Him, we are moved to worship with joyous passion and encounter Him in prayer, the Word, and fellowship throughout the day.
(Ps. 27:4; Luke 10:42; James 4:8; Ps. 23:6; Ps. 23:6; Ps. 26:8; 1 Cor. 6:19-20, Ps. 1:1-3)
Purposely cultivating hunger for God’s manifest presence and openness to the Holy Spirit experiences deepens our friendship with God and the awareness that we carry His presence for the sake of the world. (Ps. 73:28; John 1:16; Ps. 107:9; Matt. 5:6; Is. 55:1-2; 1 Cor. 3:16)
As a lifestyle, we focus on Him while we minister and attempt to say what God is saying and do what He is doing. (John 5:19-20; 5:30; 12:49-50; 14:10; 1 John 4:16-17)
