We cannot deny the power of the presence of God. In His presence, we receive an empowerment to prosper. Therefore, when we enter into His presence, by the blood of Jesus, we must do so in faith. Our faith should be based on what the Word of God says about the blood of Jesus.

  1. We can enter into the presence of God in a new and wonderful way— through the blood of Jesus (Hebrews 10:19-20, AMP).
    1. However, we must have confidence in the rights we have because of the blood.
      1. We can turn our faith into confessions. By doing this, we avoid making vain, religious statements about the blood.
      2. When we abide in His presence, the results will be seen by others.
      3. God’s presence in our lives gives us rest, or a peace, that passes all understanding (Exodus 33:14).
  2. The Bible described Joseph as a prosperous man while He was still a slave (Genesis 39:1).
    1. His prosperity was not measured by material possessions but by the presence of God in his life (Psalm 16:11).
      1. The path of life is the presence of God. Each of us has a particular path. Joseph was on his path.
      2. Being on the path does not guarantee that we will not go through hardship. Joseph went through many trials.
      3. The presence of God is able to sustain and strengthen us for the battles we face.
      4. We must focus on abiding in God’s presence daily. Satan wants to lead us astray each day.
      5. Inner strength develops within us when we dwell in the presence of God.
  3. “Surely the [uncompromisingly] righteous shall give thanks to Your name; the upright shall dwell in Your presence (before your very face)” (Psalm 140:13, AMP).
    1. People who murmur and complain cannot abide in the presence of God.
      1. Hanging around foolish, self-confident people will also prevent us from entering His presence (Proverbs 14:7).
      2. Therefore, we should remain in an attitude of gratitude. We can start by thanking Him for all the benefits we have because of the blood of Jesus.
    2. The upright dwell in His presence. No good thing will He withhold from them (Psalm 84:11, AMP).
      1. Those who dwell in His presence are empowered to prosper. They experience true happiness (Psalm 84:4, AMP, Psalm 112:1-4, Psalm 92:10-15, AMP).
