It is our belief in Christ Chapel that it is up to the Church to pray God’s will into the earth because Jesus says: “I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven”. (Matthew 16:18-19). Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on earth through prayer.
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore”. Psalm 16:11
“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” John 14:16-17
There is power that comes to your life as a result of being in the presence of the actual person of God and having His Presence in you. That Presence is a treasure and that treasure is the person of God Himself.
God is in you by faith, you might not feel His Presence in you – you know it by faith.
‘In’ is used as a function word to indicate inclusion. It is used as a function word to indicate inclusion, location or position within certain boundaries or limits. When we say the power of His Presence in you, what we are talking about is that you have that location of His Presence within you.
‘In’ also is defined as one who is in office or power or inside. In relating that to God, your life has become His office, your life has become His place for operation – God’s address, God has taken over the rights of your body by coming to dwell in you.
The Holy Spirit has been called alongside with us to take hold together with you and His Presence in you enhances you in all ways.
The indwelling presence of God gives man the hope of attaining the highest peak of attainment. Col 1:25-27 amp. It makes your innate capabilities become enhanced because the super has come on your natural. 2Cor.4:7 (GNT). So you cannot judge your life and the results you will see in your life by what you feel naturally, by what you have, who you are and where you come from. With god in You; you can stop feeling inferior; because it does not matter what people have on the outside, it cannot equate to God that is on the inside of you. You carry His Presence. You are carrying God.
The place where life dictates to you to stop is not where you should stop- you are not alone. You have the ability to know all things. He will teach you all things –Daniel 5:10-12, 17
God in you quickens, restores, make your mind function beyond what you normally would. It also affects the flesh and removes intimidation and fear. 1 John 4:4
You become more conscious of God when you acknowledge Him on the inside and continue to confess that God is real to you. Train yourselves to be Inside-God conscious and thank God that God finds you a befitting place to dwell in.
