THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PRESENCE AND THE MANIFEST PRESENCE
They are not the same and we can have the one without the other. We know that the Lord is here, but we can remain totally unaware of it. Only as we become aware of His presence is His presence manifest. He wants to show Himself to us and we need to make ourselves available and seek Him. This is what makes the difference between a nominal Christian life and a radiant/alive Christian life. This difference is important to understand.
THERE IS SOMETHING WE CAN DO
We need to develop a heart after the Lord: seeking Him and drawing near to Him.
Psalm 73:28 But it is good for me to draw near to God
James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
Don't become too busy. Avoid the pitfalls of religious business and religious activity and go for the Lord!
NEARER TO HIM
Have you ever heard someone say: 'My son/daughter is getting closer to me as they are getting older', but the truth is that the child has lived with the mother or father all his life? It is like this with us - we live with the Lord all our lives, BUT there is another dimension altogether. A closer and a more real, special relationship. We are speaking here of experience; coming to know Him more intimately and with a deeper understanding. The barriers are disappearing and a close relationship of mind and heart is developing. This is what He has for each of us.
