For the last 3 weeks or 4 , I have heard the word ” PURSUE” . I knew I was to write on it, and finally here I am ; having some time this morning to write . I have been thinking about it since I first heard God whispering in my ear a month ago.
To Pursue means : to follow in order to catch. Other definitions are : run after, chase, hunt and stalk. We can even say: continue to proceed along.
What does it mean to you ? Let me ask this, ” What does it mean to you relating to your relationship with Jesus.”?
Have you been pursuing God?. What does that look like ? Has it looked like you are following so close because you want to catch Him?, has it looked like your running after Him?, Chasing Him?
If so, great! Keep at it! He likes when we pursue Him.
If not, don’t beat down on yourself. God is a God of love, He forgives and just desires to have a relationship with you. It says in the Bible to eagerly pursue and seek to acquire love. (GOD is love. that is in 1 Corinthians 14:1).
I think one of the most important things we need to do is Pursue Intimacy with God, because I know He pursues that in us!. He wants a relationship with us. Relationships include intimacy. Where our heart is connected to His heart, and we understand His hearts passion.
When we have that kind of intimacy with our Lord Jesus Christ, than all the other stuff will make sense: righteousness, passion, purpose; But it all starts with relationship and pursuing.
2 Timothy 2:22 talks about pursuing righteousness, faith and peace. Take time today to start doing that. Every day try to make time for the one who created you and has a plan for your life here on this earth. Take the time to honor and pursue Him, Jesus Christ of Nazareth!.
He loves each one of us, He wants an intimate relationship with each one of us. Read Jeremiah 29:13 where it says you will seek Him and find Him when you seek Him with all of your heart.
Blessings on your day today everyone, I will pray for each one that reads this that you will be able to understand how much He loves you today and how He does have a plan for you in this place we called world.
One day we will be all together in the GLORIOUS place called Heaven where there is no more pain, stress, sadness or any other sickness. We will be there worshiping the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, together in unity and love.
Glory to God,
