We are reaching and striving, chasing, following after him the intent of overtaking, capturing, to get ourselves into the presence of the one, into his immediate vicinity where we can experience his fullness… who he truly is…
The purpose of our life is to pursue God. It is what we’re created to do. God wants us to seek and long passionately for his presence. His presence is real and tangible. It will change our lives completely. The problem is that most of us are not aware of what is available to us. Our hearts are not burning for God, and we have settled for lesser things.
As we pursue in word, actions, lifestyle and prayer what will happen in the midst of our prayer time is that our level of hunger for Gods presence will increase. We are discovering in a deeper dimension that God’s presence is needed to reach into our situations, families, jobs, cities and churches. Gods presence needs to be pursued and we cannot live without it.
