God wants to dwell with His people. The record of scripture shows that when the people of God honored and obeyed Him, His presence was with them. Conversely, disobedience resulted in God's presence being removed. His presence is an incredible blessing and privilege we must not take for granted. We should glorify God with our lives and strive to live in such a way that God's presence is with us.
