Coram deo: Living before the face of God.

Live everyday as though you can see God’s face… why? Because this is what should be happening in the spiritual aspect of our life. Does it sound overwhelming ? Like you’re scared to make a wrong move. Unfortunately wrong moves and decisions will be made but it’s about making a conscience effort to try again with God’s help which you can get through prayer, His word, and fasting. Let’s not forget repentance where needed, I say where needed as not every wrong thing you do will require repentance, e.g, taking a new route to work and not making it on time to work will not require you to repent. Repentance is turning away from SIN to GOD. 

Living before the face of God means you are in his presence which is a Holy place to be in. We often come out of his presence due to our sinful nature. Nevertheless God is always calling us into communion with Him because he knows what can manifest, ie idolatry, lust, temptations, distractions when you spend too much time out of his presence. God is omnipresence; granted, however God can not be part of sin, this is why he is constantly calling us back to him. God is always watching and you can never live without him being presence, but it’s to make a conscience choice to live before His face which is pleasing to God. This is not an easy thing to do but it starts with you and the desire to want God to have open access in all areas of your life.  

Live everyday with purpose, you have to ask God what his purpose is for you [through prayer and reading God’s word], ask God what it is he would have you do and God will reveal [in his time]  to you in a way you will understand. Freely ask for God’s guidance because he wants to lead us in all things right and good. Never be afraid to follow God’s instructions.
