God wants to reveal His glory and power to a lost and hurting world, but He needs a faucet to flow through. In other words, God needs a human vessel. According to Second Timothy 2:20–21, God desires that His people become instruments, or vessels, through which He can fulfill His purposes and plans here on the earth. You and I can become God’s faucets. The power of God can flow through us as we minister to those around us who are lost and hurting.
Rick Joyner: An encounter with God Changes Us
The Lord is always with us and will be when even two are gathered together. Even so, there is a great difference between this and the “manifest presence of the Lord.” The life of Moses is a good example of how the manifest presence of the Lord can change us. He was eighty years old, having spent the last forty years of his life in the lowest profession of the times, as a shepherd. He was probably considered by all, including himself, as washed up and finished!
However, one encounter with the manifest presence of the Lord changed this washed up old man into a spiritual giant who delivered a nation.

Does God strategize?
“The movement of God was like this. Here are nations and peoples spreading all over the earth. Out from those nations God takes one solitary individual, Abram, and places him, so to speak, right at the centre of the nations. That is the spiritual geography of it. And then God raises from that man a seed, and constitutes his
seed a nation right in the midst of the nations; distinct from the nations, perfectly distinct, but in the midst.
Then God constitutes that nation on heavenly principles – a corporate body constituted on heavenly, Divine, spiritual principles, with God Himself in the midst – with the result that all the other nations gather round to look on.”
T. A. Sparks
If God can work on this big of a level, are our individual life too much for Him?

When howling air raid sirens signaled another bombing raid
in London during World War II, everyone ran to the nearest air
raid shelter. Everyone, that is, except a certain elderly woman.
The people in her neighborhood were busy during the
daytime cleaning up the debris and trying to repair the damage
inflicted by the bombs. At night they huddled for protection in
the air raid shelters.
