God Thinking XIV - The Inner Court 3

"Collosians 3:1, “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.”

When you are there, (that place where you consciously bring your self) it can be as good or as delightful or as powerful as you allow it to be:
  • based on the circumstances of the moment
  • the ambiance of the place you are at
  • the type of communication you are looking for at the time
  • how much time you intend to spend in the presence of God
  • what you are seeking
  • mixed with your blood sugar level, your mental state, your measure of faith and your knowledge base. 
When you read the scriptures, share your faith - worship - praise or pray, you set conditions and time constraints and there are distractions and a multitude of other components that may or may not interfere with your moments with God.

All of this is because you are in the world, and the world is full of demonic activity, wickedness, noise & evil of every sort.
It seems like an impossible task, to get in a place with God where you can dwell in Him and bask in His glory.

Here’s why.

Even though God is always present, you are not always in His presence, because you are not always presenting yourself to Him.  God is always presenting Himself to you, but you are not always presenting yourself to Him.

If you want an inner court experience that takes you behind the veil, in the very presence of God, you will have to bring your faith, seek God diligently, present yourself to Him, without reservation, and be prepared to commune with Him in awe.
Do you want to go there?
1     You will have to be prepared to be changed.
2     You will have to abandon your pre-conceived idea of  what you will receive from God.
3     You will have to accept what God gives to you.
4     You will have to accept what God tells you when you are there.
