Stop Waiting To Be Found!
“Now set your mind and heart to seek the Lord your God.”- 1 Chronicles 22:19
GOD IS EAGER TO BE FOUND BY US. ARE WE EAGER TO BE FOUND BY GOD?
See like I said, that hiding place is comfortable. But, I also said, He won’t let us get too comfortable in it. God doesn’t want us to give up! Just like a child waiting to be found when they play hide and seek sometimes you have to jump out and say, “HERE I AM, Don’t forget about me.”
Even though we may be in a difficult place and time we shouldn’t despair. We have the privilege of prayer, God’s presence, and His amazing grace. Sometimes there maybe silence. But we must still believe and have faith that He is with us. Because He is.-Hebrews 13:5 and He hears us. -Jeremiah 29:12
When we have met God, if you remember the experience there is nothing that compares to it. There is nothing that could replace the feeling of have a one on one encounter with Him. He doesn’t play hide-and-seek with us. He’s not remote; He’s near. We live and move in him. That’s why hiding from Him doesn’t work. We can’t get away from him! God’s gracious purpose is that we grow in holiness, which means growing to be like Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in our innermost character. This growth can be accomplished only if we accept the truth of what He sees in us now and surrender ourselves to His remedial love. We should desire what God wants for us as passionately as we desire what we want from Him. We should want growth in our character as much as we want comfort, and holiness as much as happiness.-Psalm 139:23-24.
Being in the presence of God is irresistible, you’ve experienced it. Being in His presence is a renewing experience. So get into being more interested in God again! Dig deeper, and seek God with your whole heart and soul! No matter what your situation is. SEEK GOD.
Deuteronomy 4:29 says “But EVEN THERE, if you seek God, your God, you’ll be able to find him if you’re serious, looking for him with your whole heart and soul.
Ignite your faith, refuel your faith, renew your faith. Choose God and His wisdom, His grace, His love, His peace, and His plan. Stay focused on His ways. Because there is nothing else in the world that can satisfy your needs, your wants, and your desires but God.
