God Welcomes Seekers

Luke 11:9-10

9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for[f] a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

God welcomes those who seek the truth about His reality and seek, with all their hearts, to experience Him within, with arms outstretched. For those of us that can't find rest until we rest in the fullness of God's reality, He is there, waiting, waiting for us to knock at the door of His holy gates. For those of us that want more truth than the world has to offer, He is there. And I would suggest to not walk timidly towards the gateway of truth but to run, with all fervor and to knock with fervor, as one with a thirsty and hungry spirit. God will flood us with His Spirit when we do that, with the fullness of His joy and we will be refreshed with His eternal water, receiving inight, truth, joy and peace. We will no longer be hungry or thirsty but filled with spiritual manna and waters that give life to the soul.

I pray that those of us who are weary and  lack that desire to come before God find the desire to pursue Him with vigor, for He is the only thing that really matters in this life when it comes down to it. Perhaps a good thing to pray would be that God would awaken that desire within us to pursue our Creator, to experience the reality of Him within and all around us. I pray that we all knock continually at the His door, continually being revived, continually being refreshed so that in the strength we receive we can be an encouragment to others to do the same. So that they might see the love and light that we receive from God's holy Spirit through us and might be drawn to seek that same assurance, that same peace. God is waiting, on the other side of the door. It's just up to us to seek after Him and knock.
