Mallory was left unsupervised and talks for 20 minutes about the mind-blowing implications of God’s presence throughout history and in our lives as individuals. Whatever you’re carrying, you don’t need to carry alone. Join us as we contemplate the immanence of God with renewed wonder today!
“But as for me, God’s presence is my good. I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, so I can tell about all you do” (Psalm 73:28).

God comforts us with His presence:
“Feeling deeply overwhelmed may be a signal, not that our trials are insignificant or that our emotions are too strong, but that we have been carrying them alone.” Stephanie Tronson
“Every other religion explains how we get to God, only Christianity explains how God came to us.”
Question for everyone: What feeling does God’s presence solicit in you?
Read excerpt from “Forming: A Work of Grace” by David Takle
Immanuel or “God with us” is a Hebrew name which appears in Isaiah 7:14
Then we see the fulfillment of this 400 years later in the literal PERSON of Jesus… Matthew 1:18-23
“But as for me, God’s presence is my good. I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, so I can tell about all you do.” —Psalm 73:28
Biblical Progression of His Presence:
Question: Do you allow God’s presence to minister to you? What would that look like? Feel like? How would that change things…
God’s Presence is multi-faceted
CS Lewis quote- “God has infinite attention to spare for each one of us. You are as much alone with him as if you were the only being he had ever created.”
Question- When or where do you connect with God’s presence the most?
Reference to Aundi Kolber’s book, “Try Softer”
“You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.” Psalm 139:5
We cannot forget that the presence of God came to earth and dwelt among humanity, not to condemn it but to save it (John 3:17).
“The result of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quiet confidence forever” Isaiah 32:17
