Cultivate His Presence

"Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee" (Joshua 1:9)

Cultivate the art of recognizing the presence of the Holy Spirit everywhere. Get acquainted with the Holy Spirit and then begin to cultivate His presence. When you wake in the morning, in place of burying your hear behind the newspaper, couldn't you get in just a few thoughts of God while you eat your breakfast?

Remember, cultivating the Holy Spirit's acquaintance is a job. It is something you do, and yet it is so easy and delightful. Is this for ministers? This is for ministers, certainly. Is it for housewives? Yes, housewives and clerks ... and students. If you will thus see it and thus believe it and thus surrender to it, there won't be a secular stone in the pavement. There won't be a common, profane deed that you will ever do.

The most menial task can become a priestly ministration when the Holy Spirit takes over and Christ becomes your all in all.

The sanctified life is God-centered. A worldly life is impossible with a soul full of the Holy Spirit. God is seen and felt in everything.
