Magnificent Obsession

They sought God eagerly, and He was found by them.

2 Chronicles 15:15

Deep down, in the secret recesses of my soul, I long to know God in Spirit and in truth. I yearn for God to fill my life, saturating me with Himself.

But how does a person today even begin to pursue knowing God? How does someone even take the first step in God’s direction?

For me, the process began with a desire in my heart, a thought in my mind, a
light in my eyes, and a turning of my spirit when I observed the example of someone else who pursed the Lord. The fire ignites!

Do you want to know God?

Abraham serve as the example for all of us? He left everything behind.

Has the magnificent obsession begun in your heart and mind and eyes and spirit? Maybe the small spark of desire has been fanned into flame by what you have observed in the created world around you or by your conscience within you.

I do know that if you and I ever truly know God, it will not be an accident. It will be because when, like Abraham, we abandon every other goal, every other priority and embrace the God-filled life until He becomes our magnificent obsession.

MEDITATION

 God is here, right now, at your side.
