Aaron Dowds I Hosting God’s Presence: A Journey to Deep Rest – 29.10.’23

In a world filled with turmoil and constant challenges, we all long for a sense of inner peace and rest. Join us on a journey as we explore the incredible privilege of being hosts of God’s presence in our lives and how it leads to deep rest.

We delve into the story of Moses meeting with God on Mount Sinai, where God’s presence was vital for the survival of His people. We discover that God’s promise to Moses, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest,” extends to us through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

This presence of God is the key to finding rest, just as King David knew when he declared, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” His presence and rest are intimately linked, providing strength, hope, healing, and comfort in our lives.

We see the fulfillment of God’s promise through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, as prophesied by Joel and experienced by the early Christians. Now, God’s presence dwells within us, making us temples of the Holy Spirit.

To better host God’s presence and experience deep rest, we explore practical steps like a life of worship, prayer, awareness of His presence, and living in unity and community. Ultimately, as we embrace His presence, we become agents of change, spreading a kingdom culture wherever we go.

Join us on this journey to discover how hosting God’s presence leads to deep rest and transforms our lives.
