“…that I may know him…”
The words of Paul apostle penned down so many years ago, yet still so fresh in my heart today.
That I may know Him…
His Face, not just his Hand
His Ways, not just his Acts
To walk with him, not just to visit when I am in distress
I seek God, and God alone
My absolute desire is for my King
Just like the psalmist said:
“One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock”
-Psalm 27: 4-5 (NKJV)
“As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God”
-Psalm 42; 1 (NKJV)
My heart yearns
It cries out for my king
That God be closer to me than my very breath
As He breathes in, I breathe out
That I follow Him in the breaths of my life
Following him day by day
Living in the precision of His will
And my desires, lost in His.
No one should dare deter me!
For I know this pursuit is real
That the person of my king be engraved on my heart!
My heart chases hard after you my Lord.
“That I may know you”
This is the beat in the rhythm to which my heart dances.
God is not far, and he longs to have a close friendship with you throughout your life. Draw near to him and he will draw near to you (James 4:8)
