Have you ever wondered why some of us experience the transforming power of God in our life and some don't? It is not that God is present for some and not for others. Since our God is all around us and living inside us when born again in spirit, His presence is not the issue.
I believe it has to do with how we handle the Holy Spirit conviction of our wrong thinking leading us into actions that don't represent our God well. Choices lacking in honor or respect for God, ourself or our nieghbors in some form, including rebellion.
