A. MEMORY VERSE: “Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD”. Jeremiah 23:24

B. BIBLE TEXT: GENESIS 28:10-18

10. And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went toward Haran.

11. And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

12. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

13. And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

14. And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

15. And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

16. And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

17. And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

18. And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

C. LESSON INTRODUCTION: In the world today, many people do not believe in God because they do not see Him. Yet as believers, we know Him as the God that is universally present (Omnipresent) and also personally present, dwelling with His people. The Bible tells us that man can only know God based on what He reveals to him.

LET US IDENTIFY SOME OF THE WAYS GOD REVEALED HIMSELF TO MAN IN THE BIBLE
1. Through creation, Romans 1:19-20, Psalms 19:1-6.

2. Through covenants and promises to His people Genesis 12:1-3, Genesis 9:8-17

3. Through divine visitations, Exodus 3:1-6, 1 Samuel 3:6-11, Acts 9:1-9.

4. Through His interventions and wondrous acts.

God is Omnipresent God therefore being in the presence of God will entail:
A. God opening our eyes, ears and heart to see and sense His nearness in a tangible way, Genesis 28:16

B. Manifestations that can make one tremble and stand in awe of God, Psalms 114:7, Exodus 40:34.

C. Seeking God through prayer, praise or study of the word of God, as an individual or as a group draws His presence 2 Chronicles 5:14.

CONCLUSION: There is nothing like the presence of God. In His presence we find rest, fulness of joy, covering, healing, peace, favour, deliverance, spiritual growth and other numerous blessings.
Why not begin to draw close to Him more than you have been doing.

PRAYER POINTS

1. Father, we worship and adore You as the Omnipresent God.
