Bible Study

THEME FOR THE MONTH: His Divine Presence
TODAY’S TOPIC: Accessing His Presence (2)
KEY TEXT: Gen. 39:1-23
KEY VERSE: Gen. 39:2a
“And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man”

INTRODUCTION
Accepting God and Loving Him are two sure steps to access His Divine Presence. However, we have not completed the lists of things we must do or steps we must take. Today, we look at two other points: Guarding your Heart and Chasing after God. These two things will not only grant you access to the Presence of God, but will also sustain your presence before God.

Enjoy!

3. GUARD YOUR HEART
In the book of Proverbs (4:23), Scriptures say that the issues of one’s life flow from the heart. This how you keep your sacredness before God. God is no respecter of persons. Your holiness matters more to Him than your many years of Christian service.

TWEET QUOTE!

You must be very careful not to ruin your faith. Read Mark 14:38. You must watch out against sinful friends, demonic thoughts, lustful desires and selfish interests. The grace is released, but this watching is done by you alone. You must be very deliberate about your Christian life.
Read also: Deut. 4:9; Mark 7:21-23.

4. CHASE AFTER GOD
People who really enjoy the fully of God are those who truly chase after Him. If God becomes your desire every day and night, then you will be His friend/partner every now and then. These people, who have God in front of them always, are known as GOD-CHASERS! In 1Tim. 6:11, Paul told Timothy the things after which he must follow. In Prov. 18:17, God was clear when He spoke, “…those that seek me early shall find me”. David cried out to God, “I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land” (Ps. 143:6).

FURTHER STUDY:
Prov. 22:5; Heb. 12:15; Matt. 6:33; Deut. 4:29-31

theTASK:
Everyone should come next Sunday with their I.E notebook.

PRAYERS:
1. Thank God for His word
2. Thank God sincerely for the privilege of His Presence
3. Confess any known and unknown sin to God now. Ask Him to forgive you and show you His mercy
4. Ask for grace to access and remain in God’s presence always
5. Pray as led for all schooling Codites
6. Bless your week

GOD BLESS YOU!!!

Bible Study

THEME FOR THE MONTH: His Divine Presence
TODAY’S TOPIC: Accessing His Presence
KEY TEXT: Gen. 39:1-23
KEY VERSE: Gen. 39:2a
“And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man”

INTRODUCTION
Over the weeks, we have looked into the goodies attached to being with God. Those are the very little we can behold. However, there is much more. “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” — 1Cor. 2:9. The bounties that follow the presence are numerous to mention, and overwhelming to understand.

Today, however, we look at ways we can get this Presence. No result just comes; results are provoked. How do we provoke the release of Divine Presence?

1. OPEN YOUR DOOR
Many young people deliberately shut the door of their hearts to Christ. This is because they think being a Christian is boring. They are attracted to all the fun-promising things of life. However, Christianity does not stop fun; it only channels it rightly. Wouldn’t you enjoy getting first-hand secrets about your life and that of others from God Himself? How do you like to be guaranteed 100% protection? All you need to do is open up and let God. Christianity is NOT a call to suffering; it is a call to sonship. God really wants to care for you. However, He cannot. Why? Because family benefits are only enjoyed by family members. To enjoy the benefits we have seen, you must be a family member (Jn. 1:12). You should… You have to be saved. And if you want to, right now is the time (2Cor. 6:2).

Pray the prayer of salvation now before you continue studying. Ask God to forgive you of your sins. Ask Jesus to come into your life and take total control. Ask Him to be your personal Saviour and Lord.

Read also: Prov.14:12; Jn. 3:14-18; Jn. 3:36; Heb. 7:25

2. LOVE GOD
You would do almost for the sake of love. Unfortunately, however, young people have decided to love the wrong things. That is why you see them going the extra mile just to get the satisfaction they think they deserve. On the other hand, anyone who loves God will always want to follow Him, be with Him, and please Him. Your love for God will make you:

  • a. Listen to Him and obey Him always. You would not want to disobey God, if you love Him. You would always want to hear His voice. You would listen to everything He says and do them. One way to listen to God is by reading His word (The Bible) daily.
    – Jn. 14:23; Josh. 1:8; Ps. 1:2, 119:11
  • b. Talk to Him always. If you love God, you will always want to talk to Him. You would share with Him your pains and success stories. You would seek advice, direction and support from Him whenever you are confused. You would pray.
    – Jer. 33:3; Jer. 29:12; Lk. 11:9-10; Ps. 145:18

FURTHER STUDY:
Isa. 45:22; Heb. 11:6; Jn. 14:6; Jer. 33:3; Acts 2:21; Isa. 65:24
