Practicing The Consciousness of God’s Presence
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him, Genesis 5:24. “Walked with God” as used in this scripture implies that he was in habitual fellowship with God. You can’t fellowship with someone that you cannot perceive his presence. We gather therefore, that Enoch dwelt consistently in the consciousness of God’s presence. God so enjoyed His fellowship with Enoch that He took him up to continue the fellowship. God did not really intend for man to experience death. Salvation gives access to living without dying (eternal life). But you must practice intimacy with God. Those that walk with God will be taken by Him. They will be taken from sickness, from pain, from sorrow, from death, from limitations, and from all the evils of life. Practice walking daily with God and you will have a better and brighter life.
SCRIPTURE FOR MEDITATION
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
Meditating On The Personality of God
Knowledge of God and meditating on this knowledge is the cure for an evil heart. Without the knowledge of God, the heart of man is desperately wicked (Jer. 17:9), but when man’s heart becomes filled with the knowledge of God, it becomes an abode of love. (Romans 1:28- And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient).
Meditate on this revelation and worship God with it
• The Liberator of the lawful captive: God has the power to set free. He does not require permission from anyone before He can release anyone He wishes to release. After the children of Israel had been slaves in Egypt for over four hundred years, God worked out a rescue plan for them. He sent Moses to Pharaoh with the message, “let my people go”. It was not a plea, but an order. When Pharaoh resisted the order of God, he and all Egypt paid dearly for it. When Peter was arrested in Acts 12, the church cried to God on his behalf, and God intervened: And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him. And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews. No one can hold a child of God bound, he will certainly be liberated by the God who is able to liberate even those that are legally bound. God is the liberator of His children. In Isaiah 49:24-26, He says these beautiful words: Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. It doesn’t matter what has held you in bondage over the years, it doesn’t even, matter if the enemy had a legal hold on you; the blood of Jesus that was shed for you has established a new covenant on your behalf. It is a superior covenant and it wipes out every old covenant. As you submit yourself into the hands of the Lord God that sets free, He will liberate you from whatever has held you bound.
