What would happen if we asked God—not just occasionally but as a persistent, daily, even moment-by-moment request—to host His presence? What if we sought to become a living, breathing, tangible demonstration of His person? Is that a realistic hope?

It seems like a bold, even arrogant request, but any lesser request falls short of our design and His stated purposes. God has promised that we will share in His divine nature (2 Peter 1:4) and has given His Spirit to us to make it happen. He apparently is more zealous to be present within us and among us than we are to experience His presence. He seeks us more than we seek Him.

Don’t just issue a casual invitation for Him to be present in your life. He doesn’t normally respond well to casual invitations. His love is too intense for someone with half-hearted intentions. Instead, choose to relentlessly seek to host Him. Then give Him time. He will begin to fulfill His desire and yours.
