How many of us have ever heard these sayings or have said them ourselves “God come into this place”, “Wow God showed up big time”, “I really felt the presence of God in this place”, etc. I must admit I have prayed a few of these and even more but the question I have is, Do we have to pray for God to show up or is He already there? I’ve learned that God is omnipresent, yet I still pray for Him to show up at times as if he was not there. Do we ask him to show up because it is something we’ve just learned by hearing others pray that or is it biblical to ask God to come into a place?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
