There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Anyone who has come into the presence of the Lord, knows that it is an experience that words can not describe. I could use the words amazing, awesome, incredible, extraordinary; but those words don't even come close to describing the experience. To be in the presence of the Lord is as wonderful as being in the presence of someone you love deeply. Talking with each other, enjoying each others company, embracing one another, not wanting to leave their presence.
When we come into the presence of God, He reveals His Word to us that was once unclear at first. We may have heard it several times before, but once He explains it to us, it remains clear forever. That's why the scripture says, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5
If we are in need of wisdom, knowledge, or understanding, we need to seek God for it. He is ready, willing, and able to provide to us what we are in need of.
If you ever come into the presence of the Lord, you will seek Him from that point on. You will want more and more of Him. You will become mindful of those things that are pleasing/ displeasing to Him. You will strive very hard to live your life according the principles He has left for us in His Word. You will not allow the cares of this world to separate you from His love, or to hinder your relationship with Him.
God loves us so much that He gave us His only Son so that we (believers) can have eternal life (see John 3:16). He tells us that we can cast our cares on Him for He cares for us (see 1Peter 5:7). Not to mention that He will give rest to all who labour and are heavy laden ( see Matthew 11:28).
Just as Mary sat at the feet of Jesus, partaking in every word that came out of His mouth, basking in the ambiance of His presence, we too need to enjoy being in the presence of the Lord. We don't want to miss our opportunity to come into His presence, as Martha did; too busy cooking/cleaning (other cares of this world) to enjoy Jesus' company.
HE that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1
