We as human beings are born with a deep desire to find God. We might define it differently. Human terms are often inadequate to describe this primal urge. Words like wealth, popularity, success are sometimes used to define this urge and upon getting them we still have that empty spot only God can fill. Down through the ages mankind has hungered for this place and yet we often fall short. So….where is this place. I will endeavor over the next 365 days to journey to that place and ask you to join me. Some times it will be easy and simple, sometimes it will be hard, sometimes it might seem like we haven’t even moved. Yet through it all we will be steadily drawing closer to God.
- January 1st He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty Psalms 91:1 Where is that secret place? High on a mountain, deep in a valley. in a foreign land? Men spend their lives searching for that secret place. The interesting thing is that it isn’t a physical place but a Spiritual place. Having said that, the physical place is really quite irrelevant. If you are at home, at work, alone or in a group, you can enter the secret Place of God! It is often easier to concentrate on God when we are alone, but entirely possible in a crowd. In fact some of our most alone times are in a large crowd.
You will not find God unless you are looking for Him! Step one in the journey toward God…..Stop. Stop running around frantically because God wants to be with you more than you want to be with Him. We often try to act, be, or say things spiritual when in fact God wishes to speak to us! God loves you and wants you to be successful and complete. You are headed in the right direction when you are seeking God.
