There are so many powerful truths about God’s presence in our lives.  It is comforting to know these truths, especially when we face life’s pain, trials, and tragedies. I’ve done a word study on the presence of God in our lives and among many other verses, I gleaned the following nuggets of gold:

He is always with me, right beside me so I will not be shaken. Psalms 16:8

The greatest, purest source of joy and pleasure can be found in his presence. Psalms 16:11

He will never abandon me. He will keep me safe forever. Psalms 37:28a

Wherever I go, I walk in his presence and he walks with me and beside me. Psalms 116:9

His presence makes every other created being tremble with awe at his power. Psalms 114:7

God’s presence fills me with joy. Psalms 68:3

He holds me closely like a mother or father. Psalms 27:10

There’s no place I can go that is outside his presence and his hand will always guide me and his strength will support me. Psalms 139: 5-10

When I feel like I am falling, he holds me up with his victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10

He will never forget me. He has written my name on the palms of his hands. Isaiah 49:17

His presence in IN me.  John 14:17

I can be bold and confident in his presence. Ephesians 3:12

I can enter his presence fully trusting him, free of sin and guilt.

I am blameless and without fault because of Christ’s sacrifice for me.

Be blessed in his presence!
