The greatest treasure we have is the presence of God
When you were born again God took residence inside your body, and whenever two or three gather in His name there is an increase manifestation of His presence. In worship the presence of God increases, and there is always more. There is more that remains, but you must continually yield to it. The tension is to recognize what you have, but still be hungry for more.
It takes faith to discover the manifest presence of God, but it never takes work or striving. Learning to host the presence of God comes from your heart. Your heart is the seat of faith and affection. It’s your heart that becomes the seat of His holiness, His glory, and His presence. This is why Proverbs tells us…
“Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.” (Proverbs 4:23, NKJV)
You are to be aware of the Holy Spirit so much so that you can tell when your heart is welcoming Him, and when it is repelling Him. You carry something that is to be stewarded well.
Heart and mind
The Book of Acts records an account of people who took a piece of cloth from the Apostle Paul to a person who was sick. The person was healed! They hadn’t heard any teaching about “prayer cloths”, and they didn’t bother explaining it after it happened. They just simply believed.
Truth that touches your mind increases knowledge, but truth that touches your heart increases your faith. Unfortunately, too many people stop short of a divine encounter because they are satisfied with just knowledge.
But you’re different! You’re waiting to have truth revealed to you that allows you to explore all the possibilities of God’s power. You’re looking for truth that stirs your heart and transforms your thinking and opens you to one of the greatest privileges ever— stewarding the wonderful and powerful Holy Spirit working in your life!
