Genesis 28:16 (KJV); And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.
As the body of Christ, we are not in a generation that can say that God was in a place and we did not know so. That was the experience of Jacob in our theme scripture.
The presence of God should not be in a place and you do not know it. But more importantly, you should not be in a place and men do not feel that God is in that place, because you are the manifestation of His presence.
Take the example of the life of Christ. The Bible says in Matthew 1:23, “they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God with us.” Every time people saw Jesus, the conviction in their souls was that God was with them.
You too share in this experience. Every time you show up in a place, people must feel comforted that God is with them. In Acts 17:28, the Bible says, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being.”
In Zechariah 8:23, the Bible says, “ In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.”
Your appearance in a place must equate to the manifestation of the presence of God in that place. People must feel it and know it.

GOLDEN NUGGET: You should not be in a place and men do not feel that God is in that place, because you are the manifestation of His presence.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this knowledge. The Bible says that He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit. I am one with You. Wherever I am, so are You. I exercise myself in this consciousness every day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
