“The Closeness Of His Manifested Presence”

There are many things that various people call the most valuable experience of their entire life. For some it’s falling in love, with others it’s coming into a large sum of money, gaining a promotion, winning an award, or receiving congratulations. For me there has been one experience, and that happened to me when I was just 10 years old. It was the manifested presence of God, and every day it’s my most treasured experience.
Like an Olympic athlete waiting for the approval of his training coach, or the president of a country waiting for his general’s call announcing victory ~ the presence of God has a proposition in it that settles all doubts, fears, questions, and maybe so. And that is: it’s yes, and amen.
When I wake up in the morning, and sit up in my darkened room waiting for the sunlight to come shining through the windows, I begin my search for His manifest presence. Yes, this is a daily task. This experience is something that is unique and totally fresh every day. Not one day of my life experience can I ever compare with another.
It is such a unique event that it must occur fresh every day. To put it in plain talk, it is simply the presence of God saying, “Hello, I’m here!” Now I must make a note that this is one of the great mysteries of God, because He chooses the simple things to confound the mighty.
Adventures don’t happen because of human connection. They happen because of God connections that are centered on His manifested presence. It might sound simple, but I’m telling you it is the most intricate and complex way of God that is beyond your understanding. It can literally change any complex situation or problem in a second, in the moment. And that’s because God, who created all things, has the ability to fix all things. So if I have His manifested presence, guess what? From my simple position on the bed, He helps me waken and I suddenly have access to all things. Every time this happens I say in my heart, “Let the adventure of today begin!”
Obviously if something so great can happen, why is not everybody doing it? The answer to this question is a little more evasive than you would think. First thing, it requires a relationship with God Himself that has become intimate. Secondly, it is a skill that can be lost if not practiced daily. Thirdly, and the hardest, is that the thoughts and intents of your heart must be aligned with the will of God.
It took me only a paragraph to articulate those three points, but a 50-year lifetime to try to gain the spiritual skill of achieving it. To be honest, my journey was slow and cumbersome because I had been filled with a lot of traditional religious garbage that was pointing me in the wrong direction. But you can achieve this excellence presence of God being manifested in your life daily, by just simply calling out on the name of Jesus and praying to Him. Yes, it’s that simple.
Daily on Periscope, about 12 noon West Coast time, I pray for one hour and I invite all of you to join. Every day on Periscope I am attempting to achieve the manifest presence of God, though I have reached this point very few times. You will surely enjoy being with us at this time. God bless you. See you at 12 noon!
