Deuteronomy 23:14 (KJV) “For the LORD our God walketh in the midst of our camp, to deliver us, and to give up our enemies before us; therefore shall our camp be holy: that He see no unclean thing in us, and turn away from us.”
The presence of the LORD our God within our midst is of paramount importance. Especially when we are preparing ourselves to engage in the daily battles of life. As people who profess to represent God within our communities, we should feel His presence within our lives whenever we interact with others. There should be a shift in the environmental atmosphere as a result of our entrance into it. However, whenever there is no real change internally, there will be no power to change anything externally.
Therefore, we must ensure that we have a continuous encounter with God daily. This ensures that He would be willing to reside within us and perform His work through us. This calls for us to ensure that our lives are separate and above reproach. How so? By examining ourselves daily to make certain that we are in alignment with God’s Word. Also, by following the leading of His Holy Spirit. In doing so, the LORD our God will walk us into every situation and set parameters around us that our enemies will not be able to cross, thus guaranteeing us total victory each day.
