BREAKING THROUGH into the PRESENCE of God
There is nothing that compares with experiencing and living in the presence of God. You are living in a different dimension. Jesus Christ said that since the days of John the Baptist the kingdom of heaven is suffering violence because violent men are taking it by force. They are forcing their way in.
You have to force your way into the kingdom of God, into the presence of God. It does not come easily.
Many people want to walk with God, they want to hear the voice of God, they want to be filled with the Holy Spirit but they are not willing to force their way in. They are not willing to PRESS ON IN. You have to press on into the presence of God. You have to seek Jesus. He has to be on your mind all the time. You have to seek Him with all your heart. You have to press on in until you break through, and then you have to STAY there. You have to STAY IN CHRIST. As Jesus promised, that we will experience Him and the Father, Him IN US and US IN HIM if we obey His words and if we seek Him with all our heart. He promised us the indwelling Holy Spirit for those who press on in, who seek Him.
Religious people are satisfied with their Bible knowledge and their church fellowship but they don't enjoy the presence of God. They are happy to quote Bible verses and be religious but they are incomplete because they are not IN Christ. They are continuously trying to prove and verify their salvation because they are insecure and they have reason to be insecure and worried because they are not IN Christ, they are not living in the presence of God. You are only fulfilled and content when you have BROKEN THROUGH and when you know the Master, you know His VOICE. You have to PRESS ON IN into the presence of God. Seek Him with all your heart, PRAY, WAIT on Him, let Him be on your mind all day long, all night, every moment of the day. Live to please Him. Press on in.
If we seek Him, we find Him. If we draw closer to Him then He draws closer to us. He will reveal Himself to us, but if we do not seek Jesus, if we do not seek the kingdom of God, the approval of God, His presence then we will not find Him. If we allow ourselves to be distracted by the things of the world we will not get through into that presence of God , we will not live in that different dimension where even though things are falling apart around you, you are still in PEACE because you are living in the presence of God.
It is not imagination. It is a peace that passes all understanding. It is KNOWING the Master, KNOWING Jesus Christ and LIVING in His presence, DOING what you know is pleasing to Him because you walk with Him and He talks to you, you LISTEN and you OBEY Him, but it does not come easily. You have to PRESS ON IN and STAY IN His presence to LIVE in that dimension where you constantly experience the presence of God.
PRESS ON IN. Seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him.
May Jesus bless you.
