God: wants some standard….
Psalm 24:1-5 (KJV) “The earth is the Lord‘s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”
In our walk with Jesus, there are places and heights that is required, there are things we need to experience and for these things to happen we have to be at a place that we are teachable and knowledgeable about the things that pertain to God.
Walking into the holy of holies where the presence of God flows freely requires holy living and steadfastness in Christ; the things of this world will come against us like a barrage of arsenal, but God is still the buffer between us and that assault.
God created the world and He allows the temptation, so to receive that rich blessing, allow Him to fight the battles and carry you through to the end of the race. Even though the conflict is sore, hold on to God’s unchanging hands, He has promised to bring us through.
