Psalm 16:11 You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Psalm 31:20 You hide them in the shelter of your presence, safe from those who conspire against them. You shelter them in your presence, far from accusing tongues.

Exodus 33:14 LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

The presence of God is all we need. The presence of God is more powerful than any weapon we can carry ourselves and more fortified than any bunker we can create. The presence of God provides an endless supply of joy and pleasures forevermore. The presence of God allows us to have favor wherever we go and it gives us rest.

Unlike the people in the old covenant, the presence of God doesn’t come and go as the Lord sees fit. Through the blood of Jesus and His sacrifice for us, God’s presence is always with those who are willing to believe.

We can be confident in a job interview because the presence of the Lord is with us. We can complete a seemingly difficult task because the presence of the Lord is with us. We can witness to the unsaved in problematic parts of a city without fear because the presence of the Lord is with us. We don’t have to have it all figured out before we start because God’s presence is there to lead and guide us. Whatever is going on in our lives, be confident, fearless, and at rest knowing the presence of God is with us.

Psalm 140:13 Surely the righteous will praise your name, and the upright will live in your presence.
