When we seek God and find our way to Him then what?  Do we say “Hello God, nice to finally meet you” and go on our way? Do we make note of where He is and pop in on Him now and then?  Or is there more to seeking God than finding Him and knowing where He is?

Yes, there is more, so much more, in seeking God.  The seeking and finding is just the beginning.  Now we are to seek His presence.  To be in His presence is more than knowing what the bible says about Him or listening to sermons or lessons about Him.  It is more than praying to Him.

To seek His presence is to be with Him, in the same place, to be so close to Him that you can feel Him.  To feel His nearness and be certain of His substance and sufficiency.  To believe, without question, the reality of Him.

God is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent.  He is eternal, has no beginning and no ending.  There is no other like Him.  Yet, He wants us to seek His presence…to be in His presence…to be with Him.  He wants us with Him not just for a few minutes or hours or days or even years but at all times and forever! 

When in His presence we can talk to Him or listen, laugh or cry, be angry and hurt or playful and silly, quiet or loud.  We can sing and dance, lash out or caress.  We can be who we are. He encourages transparency, after all, He knows us better than we know ourselves.

Glory ye in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

Psalm 105:4

When in His presence…we can just be…His.

Rejoice

I wonder at His patience in waiting for me to join Him.

I wonder, even more, that He does wait.  I mean, really, He has other major things to deal with, you know.

Just wondering…

  1. Patricia, I am amazed at how the Spirit orchestrates the people of His kingdom to display His mind to the world. This idea of seeking God and finding Him is echoing loudly throughout the blogosphere and resonates with my own thoughts in prayer of late. Thank you for being faithful to be His voice to your readers. He really is calling mankind to intimacy with Himself. I am praying that many will hear and fear and put their trust in God!

  2. There is little “fairness” in the world. Maybe you just need to sit in your Father’s presence and let Him give you peace. He will not give you more than you can bear.

    I do know what you mean though, sometimes I wonder if He has me mixed up with someone else who would be better able to deal with stuff.

    Hang in there!

  3. Lately I have had no problems finding God. He seems to have found me and is dumping his whole bag of problems, consternations and intense inconveniences on me. I have suggested to God through prayer that I have more than enough with which to contend and to “visit” His other children with His bag of tricks. Then I grow up and accept that I am to accept life on life’s terms. Still isn’t there supposed to be a little fairness in His universe?
