1 Kings 9:3-5 (MSG)
And God said to him, “I’ve listened to and received all your prayers, your ever-so-passionate prayers. I’ve sanctified this Temple that you have built: My Name is stamped on it forever; my eyes are on it and my heart in it always. As for you, if you live in my presence as your father David lived, pure in heart and action, living the life I’ve set out for you, attentively obedient to my guidance and judgments, then I’ll back your kingly rule over Israel, make it a sure thing on a solid foundation. The same guarantee I gave David your father I’m giving you: ‘You can count on always having a descendant on Israel’s throne.’
As we live life in God’s presence, guided by Him with a pure heart, He promises to give us victory over the enemy and his plans!
The key is to remain in His presence.
Create an environment that is enticing for the Holy Spirit to hang around. Talk about Him, thank Him and worship Him. God loves this!
Draw near Him. Let His presence be your main pursuit today.
