God Thinking XIV - That Next Place 3

"James 4:8
“Draw nigh unto God and He will draw nigh unto you...”

John 4:23-24
“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him,
V24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must Worship Him in spirit and truth.”

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 God.  God is always presenting Himself to you, but you are not always presenting yourself to Him."
