When the enemies of God, the Philistines, captured the Ark of the Lord they thought they
could use it as a weapon against their enemies.
Same idea. So they brought it into their temple and set it next to
their god, Dagon. The next day Dagon
had fallen on his face before the Ark of the Lord.
Fast forward 2,000+ years and today believers in Jesus
carry that very same Presence.
The Ark of the Lord held the Presence of Almighty God before Jesus Christ had died on
the cross at Calvary. Since that day forward, the Presence of God now dwells within
those who ask him to. His Presence is also known as Holy Spirit.
So the next time you go anywhere, if you are a believer
in Jesus, remember you are carrying his Presence.
Stop for a minute and just think about that. That is a powerful thought
One thing the Philistines got right is that the Presence of God is a weapon. - just not the
type of weapon they were hoping for.
The Presence of God, Holy Spirit, is a spiritual weapon. One
that tears down the strongholds of the enemy, our adversary, the Devil and his demons.
Ask Holy Spirit to show you how you can partner with
him demonstrating the power and the Presence of God in
your life daily.
