God’s Presence – Coram Deo


The presence and ministry of the Holy Spirit is powerful and helpful in guiding our lives. How is God touching your life and leading your steps through his presence?  When we practice his presence he will become more real and active in our midst…

34 Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 35 Moses could not enter the tent of meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.

36 In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out; 37 but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out—until the day it lifted. 38 So the cloud of the Lord was over the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the Israelites during all their travels.
Exodus 40:34-38

Yesterday I shared that we should hold to our anointing.  The presence and ministry of the Holy Spirit is powerful and helpful in guiding our lives.  The presence of God in the tabernacle was just like that for Israel.

God’s presence told them to stay or go.  His presence filled the tabernacle.  Israel looked to God’s presence as stability and protection in their journey to the Promised Land.

If you remember, when they made the golden calf idol, God threatened to not go with them and that was the most terrifying thing for Israel.  Moses told God he wouldn’t go without God’s presence…

What is God’s presence doing for you each day?  How is God touching your life and leading your steps through his presence?  Coram Deo is Latin for ‘in the presence of God.’  We can practice the presence of God in our approach to each day and each relationship and each joy and sorrow.

God is with us.

Amen.

Marc Kinna
