Draw near to God

In my heart i always wanted to be in the presence of God. The Lord tells us in His Word that when we seek Him, we will find Him. But i've been thinking, what is actually involved in seeking God? I know it's not a matter of just attending church or following a certain religious tradition.

Seeking God is a matter of the heart. This one activity leads us to cross over just being "churchgoer" to becoming a follower of the "way of Christ." We seek Him, not in a mysterious mythical sense, but through intimate devotion.

Psalm 42:1 wrotes: "As the deer pants for water brooks, so my soul pants for You, O God." When i speak of this bible verse, i express my longing for God, this longing to seek God ushers me into the presence of God where i can experience the fullness of His love and undivided care for my soul.

Sometimes there are some who seek God only in times of crisis. In the bible, Jesus asked those who followed Him, "Why do you seek me?" Was it the miracles He performed, or was it the closeness of His presence that drew them? How about you why do you seek the Lord? Is He an emergency switch you push in times of crisis, or are you truly longing to experience His presence on intimate level?


Dear Lord, i know you desire my love and devotion. Help me to abide in you and seek you above everything else.

Praise be to God in the highest!

I came here by a link on Sky Watch... but you have no Sky Watch picture to comment on. I find that unfair, Tom puts a lot of work into this. If you do not intend putting a picture here then that is being deceitful.
