Have you ever considered the fact that God has sought and is seeking you? Many times we hear messages and it seems like the burden is on us to seek God first. We hear about the steps we need to take to find Him and enter into a relationship with Him. The fact is we're confronted with "are you seeking God?". Yet we need to answer the question, "Who's seeking whom?" when it comes to our relationship with God.
When we look back on Abraham's life, there is a fact that cannot be denied and one I hope you will take to heart today. You see even Stephen in the Book of Acts mentions this fact. In Acts 7:2 Stephen says, "Brothers and fathers, listen: The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Haran." Why is this significant? Abraham was minding his own business, living life, taking care of his sheep and suddenly God showed up. Abraham was Abram and he was not concerned with some God who claimed to create everything.
You see, Abraham was not seeking God; God was seeking him. What we need to realize is that this is always true of God and it is the statement of the entire Bible. God always initiates a relationship with us. He seeks after us. However you want to understand His choosing of us, you cannot deny the fact that God sought us when we were not seeking Him.
Today, rest in the peace and confidence that the God of creation is looking for you. He's wanting to talk to you, encourage you, comfort you, inspire you, strengthen you and so much more. God will show up in your life today seeking to know you. Let me encourage you to say yes to His seeking you and open your heart and mind to enjoy His words and presence in your life.
I hope you did not miss our worship service yesterday because if you did, you missed a blessing! From the music to the message God was speaking. You also missed your church taking a pivotal step into the future by electing a Pastor Search Team. Please be in prayer for this team as they go through training and seek the heart of God in finding God's man to lead HHBC.
Remember Paul's challenge to walk in the Spirit today,
