In the last year I’ve moved three times and each time I’ve moved has been a new season in seeking (and finding) the Lord. There is an adventure in this. I love that life in Christ is not the same every day. God—who is constantly making things new—consistently renews my faith in different ways. Each new season allows me to find Him in a new way, but also build off what the last season has taught me. This is the process of getting to know Christ (see Phil 3:10). The problem with this is when we get hung up on trying to look for Him only in the ways He’s come before. Sometimes He may come in a familiar way but I think it’s more in His nature to continuously allow us to search out new ways to hear His voice and find His presence.
He is so much more than what we often confine Him down to—which is our understanding of Him. Sometimes we need to get out of our box—our room, house, office or even church—and go stare at the sky. No matter what your perspective of God is, He is so much bigger than your perspective. He has designed it for those who are interested to search for Him, and the more we seek, the more we find. He rewards those who diligently seek Him (see Hebrews 11:6) but note that a diligent seeker does not continue to search where he has already looked. The reward talked about is Him. Jesus is our great reward. He is the hidden riches of secret places (Isaiah 45:3)—a well that never runs dry.
I will pursue you Lord.
