Day 13: Presence
“Let Your hand be with me…” 1 Chronicles 4:10
In order to have lasting influence, we need God’s presence in our lives. Through His power at work within us, God can do more than we could ever ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). As we ask for blessing and influence, we also need to ask for His presence as Jabez did, so that we are not operating out of our own strength but through the presence and the hand of our Almighty God. Walking in the Spirit and Presence of God will give us power to make a lasting impact this year. When we are in the battle against the enemy, the Presence of God will sustain us.
In humility, acknowledge your need for God’s presence. Depend on Him and ask for more of Him in your life today. Let’s pray for God to fill us once again to overflow in the Holy Spirit.
“Lord, I know that without You, I am nothing. I cannot do what You’ve called me to do on my own. I am desperate for Your presence in my life. I depend on You completely. I recognize that the same Spirit who raised Christ Jesus from the dead lives in me. Through the power of Your Spirit, I pray that You will help me succeed in the opportunities You’ve given me. Thank You for being with me. I would never want to face today without You. Fill me up right now in this moment by your Holy Spirit and your Presence. Allow me to walk in power today so that I can make an impact everywhere I go in Jesus name, Amen”
