IN the Old Testament, God related with people in: the Outer Court, the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. Jesus tore the veil so we can all come into His presence yet we cannot come anyhow or with anything we feel like. People often harbour in their lives what they cannot carry into the Holy of Holies. If a man has touched the tangibility of God, he cannot afford to carry offences and emotional issues. You must always labour to pay the price that will sustain your intimacy with God. The price you will pay for sustaining the presence of God is higher than the price you will pay if you lose it.
Intimacy Impacts accuracy; intimacy gives birth to accuracy and accuracy gives birth to impact. Your life will be a guess work, if you don’t have intimacy with God. The wisdom of God is that no one knows tomorrow but the real wisdom is to follow the wisdom of God. In the presence of God, there is no past, present or future. It is an ETERNAL NOW. You can be at 15 years advantage by revelation from God and access to His wisdom through intimacy.
The calling to intimacy with God is a higher call, it takes a man up. Intimacy will always bring elevation in your physical life. Staying on higher ground in the place of intimacy will give you an advantage over life and the devil. The flesh always does not want to stay in God’s presence and this affects intimacy with God. For a child of God, the glory of God is your advantage. The first thing David did when he became King was to get back the Ark of God, the same Ark that Saul abandoned for about 40 years.
The devil does not mind what he will give you to take you away from intimacy with God. The hottest battle is over your intimacy with God. Devil keeps even couples from intimacy with each other, tearing them apart by offences and quarrel because they have something precious in their marriage that he wants to steal. Real intimacy will make you see your wife and husband as they really are because you can’t know anybody until you know them in the presence of God. Make up your mind today that you will renew and pay the price to sustain your intimacy with God.
Prayer: Lord, I pray for a fresh fire on my altar and a baptism of passion for the place of intimacy with you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
