We've gone into the Presence of God, and suddenly we started doing something that we know we shouldn't be doing ... and His Presence starts to leave.
Actually His Presence doesn't leave us ... our recognition of it leaves ... because He said that He would never leave us or forsake us. He's still there in our spiritual realm ... the manifestation of His Presence just isn't as tangible as it was before.
He sees the mistakes that we make and He just draws back like our angels do when we don't give them anything to do. They just sit there with their arms folded waiting for us to give them something to do.
The Holy Spirit is always working. He's the One Who convicts us of whatever it is that we've messed up. We think that He has moved into a dark corner of our life and that He doesn't want anything more to do with us ... we've messed things up so badly.
