2 Chronicles 15:2
Our response to God greatly determines His presence in our lives. If we seek God with all our hearts, then we will find Him (Jeremiah 29:13-14). The Lord’s wants to fellowship with us, but He will not force a relationship upon us. We cannot reject fellowship with God and expect Him to remain near. He does not merely follow us throughout our day in case we need His assistance. If we continue to forsake Him, a time will come when we desperately need Him and He will not be near (Isaiah 59:1-2).
It is an affront to sovereign God treats Him like a servant who should wait us. God will relate to us on His terms, not ours. God desires a close walk with us. He will make His presence real and personal if that is our desires. If we repent of our sin and seek God on His terms, we can look forward to intimate fellowship with Him (James 4:8-10). We are to continually seek Him, not content to enter a new day without the assurance that God is walking beside us.
Do you say you want to experience God’s presence while your actions reveal otherwise? If you say you want to know God better but neglect studying His word, are you truly seeking Him? Have you regularly forsaken the place of prayer? If your actions reveal that you are genuinely seeking God, then He promises that you will find Him.
