Davidisms: Presence Over Presents

Perhaps God’s greatest gift of grace to all who believe in Jesus is this - his presence in our hearts. And it is this presence that gives us peace.


Before leaving this earth, Jesus left us with promised peace. His peace (John 14:27). And it’s a peace far greater than anything in or of this world. It’s a supernatural peace - one which passes all understanding and comes only from the Creator of all (Philippians 4:7). Inside us. Never to be taken away.


Sometimes we reduce God’s gift of salvation to simply asking him repeatedly for presents. For earthly stuff. Our prayers are then filled with constant requests for God to give us things.


But God wants us to see that his most valuable gift of all is not earthly presents but his eternal presence. This promised presence is what brings us his peace, no matter what our circumstances may be.


God's presence is always more valuable than presents.


Do you believe this?
