Are you a God Chaser?

"My soul followeth hard after thee:" Psalm 63:8a

Are you a God chaser ?

Is God chasing after you?

Is your soul in pursuit of God?

Are you willing to die in the process?

Are you comfortable and complacent and just want to stay the same way?

Do you just want to be with Him?

Do you have a want and hunger for God, that you just throw yourself into seeking Him more?

Do you have a "cry" within in you for more of God?

A God chaser is one who has a passion is for God's presence, thinking that He too might catch him. It is like a child who is being chased by their father and eventually caught in the arms of the father. Being wrapped up by the chaser, where the one who is being pursued becomes captive.

Paul was a God chaser he just wanted to follow hard after God.

"Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus" Philippians 3:12

"That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death;" Philippians 3:10

Everything that Job went through he still chased after God's presence. "Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? Job 11:7

Oh that I knew where I might find Him! That I might come even to His seat! Job 23:3

Job, David and Paul were all chasing after God. They were after that real intimacy with God. We cannot be a people that just go to God with a gimme list without that commitment. What we need to be doing is seeking a real relationship with our heavenly Father. We have to make our commitment true to Him, not as forgotten or even dismiss it. When we do this our life will begin to deteriorate, and fall apart.

Have you tasted of His goodness?

Have you had a glimpse of Him?

We should not be satisfied with nothing less than the best He has to offer.

We should not give any less than our best to Him.

Do you love Him more than anything?

Will you give up anything, or go anywhere just cause you want more of him?

How much do you love Him?
