Am I truly seeking God or just seeking direction from God?
One of God’s greatest desires is for us to seek Him. He wants us to yearn for a closer relationship with Him. He wants us to long to know Him for who He is and not just for what He can do for us. Not for what we desire of Him. But to seek Him so we can serve Him.
When we begin to seek after God and our only goal is to know Him deeper and more intimately, we will find Him in such an eye-opening and heart changing way, that our lives will be forever altered.
When our hearts desire is nothing other than a growing and more intense knowledge of God, we will experience an overflow of His Spirit.
He will make Himself known to us. He will reveal His ways mightily in our lives. He will manifest His presence in us like never before. He will empower us. He will become our life and breath. Our very existence.
He will become our bread of life. Our living water. Our sustaining, life-giving substance. He will be our all in all.
God wants us to crave that closeness with Him. He longs for us to dig deeper. When we dig deeper, we enable God to make Himself known to us in a way that draws us into a more intimate relationship with Him. In a way that will transform us.
John 16:14 tell us, “He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is mine and declare it to you.”
God reveals Himself to us through the Holy Spirit. The Spirit reveals Truth. By this Truth, we obtain the knowledge that is necessary for us to walk that path that leads to fulfilling God’s purpose for our lives. His purpose. For us.
We will only be privy to the direction He has for us when we are found genuinely seeking after Him and Him only. Our desire has to be nothing other than to know Him. Not what He wants us to do. Not where He wants us to go. But just to know Him.
Once we begin to discover God and uncover who He is really is, then God can start to work in our lives. We can then begin to experience His awesome, revealing power up close and personal. We can then begin to have the discernment necessary for us to be able to determine His will for us. He can begin to show us things that we never imagined. He can begin to do things in our lives that we never dreamed possible. He can begin to lead us along paths we never thought we would travel and we will just naturally follow.
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8)
One thing we have to remember though is that when we begin to earnestly seek Him, we have to be willing to do whatever it takes to find Him. There will surely be some sacrifice involved. Some ‘self’ that has to get out of the way. Some pride that needs to meet humility. Some priorities that have to be rearranged. God must become our number one focus.
One thing is certain. It will definitely be worth whatever it takes. To find God and to really Know Him will be the greatest accomplishment we could ever aspire for.
I pray that we all passionately seek Him and allow Him to miraculously transform us into mighty women of God. Women after His heart. Women who exemplify holiness. Women who desire to be used as instruments for His glory. Women who will find Him…
Seeking, loving and finding Him,
