Satan lived in God's presence & still fell away. The presence of God is not the true anchor, God Himself is the true anchor. If we are not anchored in God Himself, experiencing His presence can easily lead to presumption or pride. The counsel of the Lord is not "abide in his presence" but to "abide in Him..." Many are they who are addicted to God's presence, but have not yet come to abide in God Himself. Drawing near to God is not the same as surrendering to God. And seeking the pleasure of his presence is not the same as submission to His person. In His presence is fulness of joy. But in His person is fullness of Life... & the resource of full obedience...& the fruit of Christlikeness in both power a-n-d character. To anchor in God means to not only to draw near, but to absolutely surrender, & seek to know, walk with, & obey Him as life's 1st priority & greatest gift. God has many worshippers, but few worshippers of God alone. Know the difference. Live the difference.
