What Does God’s Presence Feel Like?

Since many of you don’t read the comments on these blogs, I wanted to highlight a question someone asked on the last one about my friend’s funeral:

What does God’s presence feel like? What do you mean when you say ‘God’s presence came powerfully into the room’? It’s one of those phrases that when people mention it, leaves me empty, because I don’t understand. It makes me wonder if I’m really getting all this God stuff or am doing something wrong. I mean it seems it’s a key thing yet I don’t get it. I think I have the spiritual capacity of a marshmallow!!

I get that question a lot, so I think others might be interested in my answer to her:

God’s presence “feels like” different things to different people, and even different ways in different circumstances. I don’t want to describe it as a feeling, because it goes way beyond that. At its heart it is a simple knowing that something greater than us is making his presence known in the room. That can be accompanied by supernatural events, a simple inner knowing, or the affirmation of what a number of people are sensing at the same moment.

For us at that hospital bed it was a powerful sense of connection with him and each other. It added a lightness to the room that was more spiritually seen than physically seen. It manifested itself in the lightness of heart and trust that we all sensed afterward, very different from when we went in. But it doesn’t always look like that, which is why I hesitate to define it. I find people recognize him less when they are burdened down by expectations of what it should look like. Then we are looking for manifestations, rather than simply seeking him.

For many people it isn’t so much that God isn’t making himself known, it’s that they haven’t yet tuned to his frequency to recognize his voice or his fingerprints in the simple realities around them. I think most of God’s supernatural working appears to be incredibly natural as it unfolds. Looking back we see with greater clarity what he was doing…

    What a good question. I agree with the not trying too hard. In fact, the moments I have felt Him the clearest are when I have been going over things in my mind and a thought, word, or clarity just “speaks” louder than the tapes I usually play inside my brain. I can also sit through a powerful, passionate message or choral production and feel nothing, but in the words of an old, favorite hymn the tears come coursing down my face. No rhyme, no reason. Maybe it is His rhyme, His reason.

      I had no faith.No belief in a God.LAUGHED about it on radio saying God was dog backwards and you expect me to accept this rubbish. For 45 years in fact I knew more than I could have. It happened to me one late night going to my bed. I do not drink or smoke and I looked up to see an image set in the bedroom doorway. The door ajar framed there was the vision of my own father.He did not look at me but had his eyes on the wall opposite the windows. For several seconds I viewed him. His dress as he always did in flannels and sports jacket shirt and tie when feeling casual. I blinked and he was gone. It was my answer from above.Six days prior I had talked with a Bishop who blessed me but could not say what was Mortal sin in the case of original sin that Christ was said to die for us for. He could not say only the symbolic apple. I smiled that someone would have to die for an apple that belonged to God. that night I called on above and shouted show me proof that i should even try to accept.Bring me my father as he is the only man I trust. There you have it I accept that God exists. What his name is now is the start of yet another quest.Or do I say no more and take him as
      he is the Great Architect who we will all meet one day. I tell this to you as maybe it may help someone to trust more than I ever could and then be more blessed because.

    Yes, it is not easy to describe what you fee, when the presence of the Lord comes. I used to ask myself that every time. But one day when I felt it, all questions were gone. Now I can feel it differently, but there is one thing that I experience every time – tremendous sense of peace that washes away all the troubles and cares. When his peace comes, it is very easy to hear Him. But quite often I just bask in His presence without saying a word 🙂

    I loved how you opened this up Wayne, it was imo more like looking through a window to experience Him more fully on an individual level and allowing the mystery and wonder and awe to remain in tact for the beholder.

    I couldn’t help but think of how the Father (Papa) in making himself real to Mac had to offend his mind in order to reveal his hearts need!

    What a “sensible” approach to helping us all understand how to hear God; especially in a time when people are doing all kinds of very weird things, trying to persuade us ‘this is the voice of God!’ Jesus said “My sheep hear My voice.” thank you.

    “Then we are looking for manifestations, rather than simply seeking him.” How true, I have quite a few friends that ‘chase’ the supernatural, clammering to see power speakers & power worship services to see the manifested power of God. To me it’s always been an element of seeking the hand rather than the face.
    I love how the Message puts it “Steep yourself in God reality, God initiative and God provisions.” and these are also in the simple everday things.
    I wish more people I knew would ask this question, thankyou for your simple answer…

    I agree we need to focus on Him, but He loves to manifest Himself! 🙂 Every relationship should have feelings, emotions, and God’s presence produces all of that. Actually it’s a very powerful evangelism tool. Here instead of just reasoning for people, we pray for them and let the Lord’s presence flow into them. It really touches people more than anything else. Then they asked what it was that they experienced, and it opens the door to share the Lord with them.

    I experience the presence of God in different ways but most times I feel an overwhelming sense of peace and trust. At the end of that experience God’s love and sovereignty is affirmed versus reveling in the fact that I had a good feeling or particular sensation. That’s how I know it’s God and not my heightened emotions.

    What a great aricle! just what I like to read “just simple and to the point” sometimes we make it hard and confusing by trying to enforce our experiences on other suggesting that God does things a certain way based on our experiences. However, I agree that God deals with us as individuals and my experience can be different from yours, and when we share our experiences we will find that all of them have one thing in common “they will all allign with the word of God”. In his presence we find peace, trust and joy. I’ve had the same experiences and it is awesome.

    I agree “focus on God” be alert and aware that he is God and he knows how to present himself to every individual. Thank you all for sharing.

    Just adding to this. About an hour ago before this was written I got anxiety over my health and my familys health.. Somethign happened which got me worried and I do get anxiety sometimes.
    I haven’t been the best Christian lately, and although my faith is strong I have been acting pretty badly recently, as sometimes can happen with a student going through a change in life to independence.
    However I went to another room, onto my knees and said a deep meaningful prayer. Suddenly I felt overwhelmed with a deep shiver and overcome with emotion. This was only 20minutes ago. Just wanted to share my story. I hope I am shown the way to be a better person and my family is blessed by the Lord.
    I trust in him to deliver! Amen.

    Doesn’t the prensence of God feel like pure love? Feeling of being hugged? Would God say “you cannot have wine my child” and then either hearing children laughing. Or is it normal to worship God and feeling so close to him? Would Jesus ever put his hand on a sinners shoulder?

    i do not know why he chooses to make His presence known to me, at times this experience is lost, that warmth feelings sometimes in different forms difficult to describe which make one to experience His love or joy or peace, when one entangle himself on things that are not of God he will later realize it is no more present, but sincere repentance from the heart with cry if possible it will come with refreshment, truly it is awesome

    I feel God’s presence in a tangible way. His presence actually manifest on my body. Sometimes I feel it on my head, sometimes on an arm, my hands, my feet. Many times on my feet it tingles, or a prickly needle sensation. I feel it mostly when praying, reading reading the scriptures, or laying in bed thinking about Him. It’s an awesome glorious experience, and I never want it to go away. Again, everyone feels differently, but for me it is an actually tangible feeling. I am experiencing it while typing this. It feels like a sheet has been softly laid on my lower left leg.

    Please, Please, Please don’t ever be discouraged from seeking all that God has for you. Of course you must have a heart relationship first, then allow the Godhead to communicate with you however, they see fit. (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) God is a Spirit and will communicate with you in Spiritual ways. If you never talk about these things or seek them you will never know about them, and that is what the enemy wants, to keep us in darkness when it comes to the things of God. God loves it when we seek after Him. Blessings!

    Like Jan, I also feel God in a tangible way…similar, I think, to what she describes. The closest thing His presence resembles for me is “goose bumps”…but I have no goose bumps when I feel His presence. It is a physical wave of nice feeling anywhere on my body. As I’ve been reading these posts, I’ve been feeling it a lot starting in my back and “swooshing” down my legs. This may sound odd, but I can also sometimes “make” myself have this feeling (maybe it’s Him responding to my invitation?), but sometimes it sneaks up on me when I feel He is speaking to me or just when I’m focused on Him. I like the feeling and feel it quite often. At different times in my life, I believe that Satan has tried to tell me that it’s not really God…but I know in my heart that it is. And, I agree with the other comments…I believe that God speaks to us in different ways. Just because you don’t physically feel His presence doesn’t mean He isn’t there. His Word says that He is there…and whether you feel Him or not doesn’t change His Word. He’s there. There are other things in life that I haven’t been blessed with (yet), and I would not like it if someone told me that I am any less a Christian because I haven’t experienced or received those things yet. 🙂

    It manifests in several ways. Most is an overwhelming peace that is so
    Deep all of your troubles and worries fade away. When you are in his
    presence you feel perfectly at peace. A deep deep peace.

    I also felt an incredible joy that was so strong i felt as if
    My whole being would explode .

    Like a compassionate father, his warm and unconditional loving regard. I feel like a child again and feel and know Him to be my true father. In this moment of  profound connection, all anxieties and mind worries are swept away in the wave of his Love. I feel so blessed to know of this.

    Yes! When you grow in the presence of the Lord, you will begin to witness the unexpected. Faith in Him is the basis of our love for Him, and when some come to know Him, they then can hear His voice, as it pulls at their hearts and minds. When you grow in Him, all your fears will wash away, and your sins will be cleansed by the blood of Jesus, as white as snow. And behold that He will never leave us.

    I am currently 20 years old, and I don’t know what I felt is real or not. Let’s hope it’s real. I was watching Titanic movie on my bed, and I was so engrossed into the movie that I barely moved my body, that is why my feet got numb. That day I got scared and sad suddenly, without knowing the reason why and I cried tears of sadness. Whenever I’m sad , I will watch a movie that’ll comfort and cry me to sleep, and I chose titanic. Surprisingly, I didn’t even let loose a single drop of tear at the end of the movie. I felt, hey that’s really weird, I haven’t seen Titanic movie in years, and I’m usually an emotional being, why ain’t I crying? I guess what we expect is different from reality as a whole. I remembered the time was 2:44am when I went to bed, and before that my mum woke up and nag me to go to bed several times. I guess that was why I didn’t have the mood to tear up after being nagged several times while trying to enjoy the movie. Parents :/ 

    And then I closed my eyes, but I couldn’t sleep, so I recalled the movie scenes hoping that’ll make me forget my worries and put me to sleep. I kept rethinking the last scene, which was also the most touching scene, why can’t I cry out loud? Is there something wrong with me? And then I started praying to God, (hand pray sign held tightly), I thought of my struggles, and patiently call out to God’s name to help me end all my struggles I’ve been suffering all this while. My struggles was ‘I was a coward, shy, afraid, timid person to everyone I met.  I had an addiction that has affected my life tremendously, it had led me to anxiety and depression. I felt helpless & lonely, feeling that no one could save me from Devil’s evil deeds.’ I’m not perfect, I made mistakes and I want God to know that. I keep on calling God’s name, basically wailing Him in tears, and I could instantly feel my whole body is being numb due to His presence and my sight was blurry because it was dark. I want to believe it’s Him. When I get the feelings that it was Him, the continuous stream of tears that flow out inevitably was tears of joy. I finally experienced the tears of joy. I couldn’t see Him physically, not His face, but I could just feel His existence. It’s a very strong , powerful, indescribable feeling during that moment. It was incredible, I wasn’t afraid at all, instead it was a moment of gratefulness and relief. I communicated with Him. In my head , there was a little encouraging voice, I assume it was Him and He told me that whatever happens, don’t need to be afraid, he will be by MY side, always, protecting me. During that moment I didn’t feel like He was God, he felt more like a friend, who really understands what I’m going through. Just these words, are powerful enough to well me up in tears of relief and happiness, it was a huge relief and peace. 
     
    But it’s very weird..for Him to connect with me in such a way. Because I’m not really a religious person, and I guess it happened because during that vulnerable moment I have no one to turn to but only God could help. Now I believe the presence of God because He proved his existence to me, I respect Him even more, He is the great almighty God that I know, who created this beautiful earth.

Just these words, are powerful enough to well me up in tears of relief and happiness, it was a huge relief and peace. 
     
    But it’s very weird..for Him to connect with me in such a way. Because I’m not really a religious person, and I guess it happened because during that vulnerable moment I have no one to turn to but only God could help. Now I believe the presence of God because He proved his existence to me, I respect Him even more, He is the great almighty God that I know, who created this beautiful earth.

    It sounds wonderful to me.  He is like that, coming to  us in his tenderness, letting us know he’s bigger than all the things that confront us.

    Feeling God’s presence, is like feeling a part of my body. He lives in me. He breathes in me. He has my being. He fellowships with me. When I pray in spirit, he speaks through me. He is no longer in the Holy of Holies. He is in me. I feel it, I know. He talks to me. I know his voice. He fills me, He refills. He heals me. He directs me. I jus cant go on and on. If you dont know this, you are not a Christian!!! You need God!!!

    Let me give you an example: Have you ever sinned and you dont feel like praying??? You are running away from His presence, the one you dont feel. All you need to become who and what you are destined to be is God!!! You can start right now

    Thank you all. Yall have helped me realize more then I already have the presence of God and my life, I’ve always looked for an intense feeling of power that’s suppose to surge through our body when God’s brought his presence upon you. But now I know better, because once before I was sitting in my moms living room studying up on God’s word and reading this book called the purpose driven life which teaches you how to find God’s purpose for your life. So I found myself talking to talking to the Holy Spirit of God which I do everytime cause I always pray and ask God to allow his Holy Spirit to minister to me each and everyday all day, but on this particular day in that particular moment I feel a intence Joy and peace come upon me it was unexplainable It feel really good and calm and great, and theirs been other time I’ve cried why watch TV church services and praise a tons.

    This isn’t really a question but I feel God’s presence in my heart, sometimes I feel he is not there because all of the suffering and pain there is in the world. Most christains give their life to God but sometimes believe this can’t be real. I am a christain but sometime I feel he isn’t there to help with your problems. I have loads of friends who are christians and they say to me that God can show you the right paths to take. I am only 14 years old but I give God loads of thought.

    The pain and suffering in our world is cause by human brokenness, not God.  He is invading this world through Jesus’ coming and by his presence in us. He wants to redeem people and put his light in the world.  He can show you the way forward in anything you race.  Learning to listen and follow him is a process and it does take some time.  It is best if you look for what he wants to do, rather than try to fix things the way we think they should be fixed. I pray you’ll come to discover how it is that he makes himself known to you and how he wants to lead you on to greater life and freedom.   Blessings to you.

    All I want to say is this… I prayed to GOD the HOLY TRINITY for a personal reason…I felt like my soul was touched…that is the best I can explain it.

    Hi Kanika…  I actually don’t believe in all religions. As I see it, religion is man’s way to get to God, even if they don’t know it.  But they don’t work, including Christianity as a religion.  But Jesus came to show us that God makes himself known to us, and there are no roads God won’t go down to find us…  I’m so glad you are discovering the ways he’s coming to make himself known to you.
