Pursuit

“Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?” – Psalm 139: 7

There is literally no where we can run from His presence. He is what is holding everything together. All things are functioning because it is Him that allows it. All creation is a witness and declares the Glory of the lord. He governs all things on earth with wisdom we cannot comprehend and His eyes see into the hearts of every man and woman. He is present in everything.

Then why do we feel like sometimes He is the most distant being ever?

Have you ever learned something from school and then years later, even months later  you forget what you learned? Have you ever been in a relationship were you spent the first months eating up all the information about that person but then a year or two later you stop figuring stuff out about him or her and you realize that you don’t know who that person is anymore? Or how about, training everyday to compete in a sport, then you stop, years later you try to play that sport and you realize how out of shape you are? I think you know what I am getting at.

The human race is flawed in a sense that without actively pursuing something we return to a default way of thinking or doing. And being that we are human, our default is everything imperfect, everything that is wrong for us, everything that is unhealthy, everything that is sin before the Lord.

So of course, if we are not actively living a life a righteousness we are by default living a life of unrighteousness. If we are not seeking to hear from God, or not reading the huge multi-book love letter also known as the bible, or even not talking with Him, we will most definitely feel distant from the God whose presence is everywhere. Our hearts become closed to Him without choosing to open up to Him.  And sometimes you don’t even realize that you heart is closed!

So, I challenge everyone of you. Find an area in your life in which you feel like God is distant and find a place that is separated from everything else. Kneel, pray, listen, read and ask. Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and, everything shall be added to you. That is a promise.

This song is crying out to the Lord. It is choosing to take a posture of humility before the Lord. Asking Him to fill us up after we have opened out hearts and emptied whats inside. And always, what He has for you is better than what you have for yourself. Enjoy and be blessed.

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” – Psalm 16:11
