presence of God

Bless Your House

And all the people departed every man to his house: and David returned to bless his house.” I Chronicles 16:43


David had the ark brought into Jerusalem the proper way and there was much celebration. There was much praise offered up to God. Then he went home and blessed his family. I wonder how many, when they go home from church, bless their family. I fear that to many go home and complain about the service. Why is that? One reason is because there may be an absence of the presence of God. When the presence of God is in our meetings, our praise will be genuine and our hearts will be made glad. Then we can’t help, but to go home and bless all those around us.

Let God’s Presence Return

But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof. 7And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god.” I Samuel 5:6-7


The ark of God represents the presence of God. Israel lost the presence of God when the Philistines captured the ark of God. Just like today, the presence of God is gone from many of our churches. However, that does not mean that God is not at work. He dealt with those Philistines while they had possession of the ark. God was still at work revealing Himself to the lost. Let’s pray that the presence of the Lord will return to our churches so God can use us to reveal Himself to the world.
