Divine presence is what makes an individual, a people or place to be different and exceptional on the earth Rms. 8:31. It was God’s presence that was behind the exemption of the Israelite from all evil in their 40 years of wilderness journey Exo. 33:14-16. No matter how severe the evil happening is, God’s presence will make the believer to be exempted. What we therefore need for us to enjoy exemption in the days of increasing danger and evil occurrence is to carry God’s presence all the time.
Keys to Divine Presence for our Exemption.
Our God is the thrice holy God; to enjoy His presence will demand a walk of holiness Rev. 4:8; Heb. 12:14; Amos 3:3. Any man can walk in holiness when he makes the choice for it, the challenge is that many don’t make the choice but desire holiness Due. 30:19.
Love makes a man to become one with God 1Jn. 4:16; Jn. 14:21,23. Therefore, when the believer walks in love, he will be practically walking with God all the way. Remember, love is a choice that individuals make.
Thanksgiving grants access to God’s presence, while God dwells in the praise of His children Psa. 100:4; 22:3. In essence, when we live by thanksgiving and praise, we are guaranteed God’s presence every moment.
In conclusion, remember that as long as we carry God’s presence, we are secure from whatever evil that happens in the world. The believer is not permitted to be part of the end-time evil, but he has to accept the responsibility for his exemption right.
