God's "incarnate presence" is manifested in Jesus. Perhaps you have heard the story of the little girl who was afraid of the dark. Her mother kept insisting, "God is watching over you. He will take care of you." But the little girl insisted, "Mommy, I want a God with skin on." That, of course, is the reason God visited this planet. He came to earth as a baby and truly was...God with skin on.
John tells us, "The Word [Jesus] became human and lived here on earth among us..." (John 1:14). Our awesome God restricted Himself to a physical body so He could live among us and teach us about Himself. This is the most tangible way God has revealed His presence to us.
God's "indwelling presence" resides within every believer. Just before Jesus returned to heaven, He told His disciples, "I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever – the Spirit of truth...He lives with you and will be in you" (John 14:16-17).
Unbelievers cannot begin to comprehend why we are so confident that God is with us. Though God is omnipresent in their universe just like He is in ours, they cannot sense His presence.
But the God who is present everywhere is felt by those sensitive to the Spirit of God. Jesus explained this to His disciples: "The world cannot accept Him [the Holy Spirit], because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him" (John 14:17).
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Do you sense that small still voice of God's Spirit in your life? If not, stop long enough today to really listen. Then tomorrow, stop to listen again. Make it habit, and watch God transform you.

Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
