God is looking for people who want more of Him in their lives. The bible says “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (2 chron 16:9)
When we begin to awaken to the reality that God is seeking us out, our desire to know Him becomes the motor of our pursuit.
In a wonderful book by A.W. Tozer called The Pursuit of God, Tozer starts off the first chapter with a profound statement.
“We pursue God because, and only because, He has first put an urge within us that spurs us to the pursuit.”
How delightful it is to recognize that God is working 24/7 in our lives with various situations, soft whispers, and inner promptings that draw us closer to Himself each time.
The sooner we become aware of how God is speaking to us, the sooner we will enjoy the rewards of God’s Presence in our lives.
So how do we respond?
We know that Jesus says in the book of John “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” so by looking at the life of Jesus we begin to get a glimpse into the very heart of God.
Everything that mankind is looking for can be found in the face of Jesus.
Let’s explore this understanding further in the days to come.
Think on this: The God who created the vast universe and me, has been pursuing me to show me who He is. If I can only wake up to the truth that God is near, I will begin to see His Hand moving in my life. This Hand will point me to Jesus and I will begin to understand the heart of God as I see Christ in all things.
