“For the Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee…” (Deut. 23:14).
The presence of the Lord within our midst is of paramount importance when we are preparing ourselves to engage in the daily battles of life. As people who profess to represent God within our communities, His presence within our lives should be felt 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 on a daily basis to ensure 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 by examining ourselves daily to make certain that we are in alignment with God’s Word and are following the leading of His Holy Spirit. In doing so, the Lord thy 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.
