Examples of God Chasers
The Bible records examples of those who diligently sought after God and we’re found of Him They include Enough (Genesis 5:2; 24); Moses ( Ex. 33: 13-23): Jacob (Gen. 33:24-30). Ezra (Ezra 7:10); Daniel (Daniel 6:10-22); David (Ps. 63:1-8); and Paul ( Paul 3:7-14). They were not chasing after God because of what they wanted for themselves alone but wholeheartedly believed in God (John 6: 65-69). They also acknowledged their emptiness and nothingness without God. (John 14:5).
The God Chaser’s Map
A map gives a representation of a location needed for navigation. Anyone chasing after God must understand His spiritual location. While God is omnipresent. His manifest presence is only for those who diligently chase after Him. Hence, among others, the Lord will be found in the place of praise (Ps. 100:3-4; 22:3). He will be found in the place of prayer and fasting (2 Chro. 20:3; Ezra 8:21; Daniel 9:1-3); You will find the Lord when you strive to live in holiness (2 Chro. 34:3; Ezra 6:21; HEB. 12:14). Ultimately, the Lord will be found in His word (John 5:39; Ezra 7:10; Ps. 34:4).
We require the Lord to help us and be on our side when seeking the Lord. We cannot do it by human effort. Let us call on the Lord today to help us.
