Hindrances to Entering the Presence

Pastor Samuel Tyler

Removing Hindrance to God’s Presence that keep us from receiving His best for our lives

To receive direction from the Lord takes a quiet heart. The opening scripture below states that to know God and His will we must have a still quiet heart. The scriptures teach that He speaks in a still small voice. 1 Kings 19:12  Below is an outline with scriptural references that you can study to help you in your pursuit of the Lord. A podcast is also included under the media header to give further instruction and understanding. Be blessed as you remove the hindrances you face seeking the Presence of God.
