God Thinking XIV - That Next Place 4

"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.

Note: Being in the presence of God is always beneficial, but not always pleasant.  Don't expect everything to go your way or that every answer that you will get will be, 'yes my son, as you wish.' God is not a genie in a bottle and you are a creation in desperate need of being perfected and only God can do that. If your expectations are to go to God and set the record straight as to who is really in charge in your life, you will be greatly disappointed. What God tells you, if you have an open mind and heart, might break your heart. If you cannot face the truth about yourself, don't commune with God. 

1     You will have to be prepared to be changed.
Some people think they are communing with God; but there is no evidence that they are being changed.  They think they have been in the inner chamber, the Holy of Holies, but when they come out there’s no Shekinah glory, no brokenness, no proof written across their face.  No evidence of having been with God; no word from God, no direction, no promise, no power.  

My God, if you are not changed - you haven’t been there."
