How Do You Pursue God?

Deuteronomy 4:29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.

So how do you pursue God?  Think about that question for a moment.  You pursuing Him.  The very thought causes people to twitch.  Some have even told me outright that if they have to pursue God, then He isn't worth pursuing.  WOW!

We appreciate that fact that God is with us.  That He is omnipresent and that He will never abandon us.  But what are you doing to be in His presence?

Think of it this way.  If there is someone that you really, really want to meet in person you will do all you can to make that happen.  But if there is someone you would rather keep your distance from, then again, you will do all you can to make that happen.  In other words, the relationship depends on you.

So, first of all, do you want to be in the presence of God?  It's a yes or no answer.  I know many would like to qualify that statement.  But in reality either you do or don't.

Then what are you doing to be in His presence?

John 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Do you worship God?  Do you desire to be in His presence?  Is there an aching in your heart to experience His love and peace in your life?  Does the very idea of worshipping Him bring you joy?  Are you willing to submit your body, soul, and spirit to Him?  

Are you willing to pursue God? 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I want to pursue you today will all my heart.  AMEN
