How do you seek God Who lives inside of you and Who is with you ALWAYS? Have you ever thought of that?
I excitingly ask questions like these because the truth of the matter is, it is such a bizarre thought to seek Someone Who is with you all the time.
In the Old Testament, people seek Him through priests and prophets who are chosen and anointed. In the NEW COVENANT that we’re in TODAY, we are a CHOSEN generation, a ROYAL PRIESTHOOD because of the finished work of Jesus Christ! How privileged we are to have been sealed with such identity and all we did was BELIEVE!!! In Christ we see, hear, feel Him in the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Now, do we seek Him? One of the ways I believe is when we get to be aware of His presence IN THE PRESENT. We include and acknowledge Him in EVERYTHING that we do.
When our thoughts are filled with His goodness. When His still small voice speaks, we MAGNIFY HIM by echoing what we hear by SPEAKING AND DOING! All creation exist because God spoke and the whole earth trembles in submission to His voice.
When you have a date with your loved one in a fine dining restaurant, you just don’t sit and eat without talking and exchanging your hearts’ desires. This is when you get to know each other deeper. All your ears and eyes are in full attention to grasp everything because of LOVE! Everything else around you fade away.
This is how God wants to be with us. We are the apple of His eye and every cry of our heart is a melody to His ears because He longs for you and me, His beloveds. His entirety is focused on us waiting and when we respond to His wooing, then we get to hear Him speak.
When He speaks and moves with such love and gentleness, your heart gets overwhelmed that compels you to effortlessly SPEAK and DO what He just told you to do. The whisper of His still small voice now GETS MAGNIFIED in your life where your fears and doubts become voiceless!
Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually…
“Let the LORD be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”Psalms 35:27 NKJV
