Topic: Generating The Hunger That Attracts God’s Presence
SCRIPTURE: Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. James 4:8.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Worship gives access to God’s Presence.
MESSAGE: It has been established that the Presence of God with a person is called the Anointing.
Yesterday, we saw that a permanent longing for God and His Presence is key to attracting His abiding Presence.
Now, how can one generate hunger and longing for God in order to attract His abiding presence?
It is by engaging in prayer and fasting!
Prayer and fasting is key to generating a perpetual and unquenchable hunger for God that will cause the Anointing to rest on a person.
My counsel is, take one or two days of prayer and fasting every week. Your focus in these days of prayers and fasting should not be centred on asking God for material possessions but the desire to know God and His purpose for your life more.

Also, maintain a lifestyle of worship. Worship gives access to God’s Presence. Psalm 89:15 says “Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound; they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.”
Beloved, maintain a perpetual stand with God in prayer, fasting and worship so that the Anointing of God will flow perpetually in your life.
Remember this: Worship gives access to God’s Presence.
1. Ask God for His abiding Presence in your life.
2. Embark on a weekly personal fast of consecration in order to seek His Face for the Anointing.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask for the discipline of prayer and fasting. Help me LORD to pray without ceasing in Jesus’ Name.
