|The Pursuit of God|
Text: "Your face Lord, I will seek." Psalm 27:8
It is possible to seek God. It is possible to be a seeker of God. Indeed, whole lifetimes can be spent in the pursuit of God. God, being who He is, is knowable, hence One whom all of us can pursue--all the time.
A.W. Tozer is the author of the perpetual best-seller, The Pursuit of God. One of the reasons I accepted the call some years ago to serve as publisher at Christian Publications, Inc. was that the responsibilities included the ongoing publishing of Tozer's works. His best-selling work reflected the passion of his life. He was himself in life-long pursuit of God.
From where does such an idea emergethat God can be pursued and found? It comes in part from David. He was a man after God's own heart. Though he sinned grievously, erred greatly and made huge mistakes as king, David is a man who sought and found the Lord!
Are you in pursuit of God? Have you found Him?
