Returning to God's Presence
You cannot vacate the presence of God for an extended period of time and expect to be able to rush back in at your convenience.
My brother got married recently in Nigeria and so my wife and I flew out for the occasion; it was a relatively short trip as we were gone from a Tuesday to the Monday of the following week (6days). During that time, it was difficult to pray, read the bible and dwell in God's presence with all of the wedding activities going on; life seemed busy. Before the main event however, I had waited on The Lord for 3 days. Side note: many battles are fought long before the D-Day, work at this when you have major events going on in your life.
Because we live our lives in segments it's unfortunately very easy to walk away from the presence of God. It is only when we are in our normal routine or elements that we're able to stay in God's presence, this shouldn't be the case. We should always be in His presence, with the Spirit of God in us. When we aren't focused on God or when we are not as spiritually alert as we should, things happen that typically should not.
In addition, when we find ourselves away from God's presence and then try to return quickly in an attempt to reach the holy's of holy we find it difficult to attain our desired state quickly. Just as it took you sometime to migrate away, it'll take sometime to immigrate back in. How then can you speed up the process to prevent the devil from taking charge of your spirit-man? Worship! Worship can speed up your elevation into God's full presence. Ushering praises to the King of Kings and The Lion of the Tribe of Judah will ensure the heavens open her flood gates of blessings and grace unto you. We must work hard to always remain in God's presence, for there alone can we find the fullness of joy we so desire. Choose God's presence, choose joy!
