Importance to stay in God’s presence
Scripture reference: Deuteronomy 28: 1-8
Let’s start this article with an example that may seem simple but very meaningful.
Imagine a dad, back from work having planned a package of chocolate (or another good present) for his children.
Arrived at the home, he realizes that the children have broken the TV screen of the living room.
What will be this Dad’s reaction? At this point the opinions will certainly be mixed.
But it seems plausible for a father who wants his children to be conscious of their misconduct not to give them this present directly in view of the wrongdoing.
So the father can decide to postpone the donation to a later date or even give it to the neighbor’s son!
Our God being the most responsible Father would not like to find us every time in situations that would not please him.
To remain in the presence of God, to listen, to practice and to remain in fraternal communion with God through his Holy Spirit is a must to experience his blessings because in fact there are abundant joys in His presence and eternal delights on His right.
As it is written in Deuteronomy 28: 8, to remain in the presence of God by being attentive and looking at his instructions grant us access to the divine provision and rest on all around.
Thus the blessings planned by our Father in our favor will not escape us.
So the question is How to live in the presence of God?
