Pursuing God

Pursuing God…

Proverbs 21:21 says – He who pursues righteousness and mercy, finds life. The word used for “pursue” is a Hebrew word that also means “to hunt.”

We are to hunt after righteousness and mercy, to pursue it with all our hearts; to even run after it. But notice something else – it doesn’t say that the one who pursued righteousness is blessed… but the one who pursues it.

In other words, we are never to stop pursuing God. The pursuit of God and His righteousness is something that must never become an action in the past tense.

One of the greatest mistakes believers make is that they pursued God, but only in the past tense, not any more. They lost the zeal and passion to pursue God.

But to have pursued Him in the past doesn’t bring blessing. But in the present, it does. Make it your aim, your plan, your occupation, your joy to pursue God.

You will find and you will be blessed. For the one who continually pursues God and His righteousness, will continually be blessed with new life.

But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 1Timothy 6:11

Make it your mission today to truly pursue God, to hunt, and chase after Him, after His presence, His righteousness and ways. Seek and you will find.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
