There’s no way you can live for the Lord, or there’s no way you can move forward, even in your life, whether you’re a Christian or not – if you want to move forward and be successful and feel free in your heart, no matter what it is – stop dragging that thing – because it gets embedded in you.

God Pursues You

…there is a drawing of the Holy Spirit on every sinner – every sinner. The Spirit of God is present in this world, and there is a sense in which God is drawing every sinner to Himself – every time the cross is seen, every time the Gospel is proclaimed, every time a Christian shares their faith with someone else, the Spirit is on that.

Patrick Steele

lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, lord.
You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.

Psalms 139:1-5 NLT

  1. God pursues you first
  2. God is pursuing you always
  3. God wants to be pursued by you

“To have found God and still pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily-satisfied religionist, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart.” A.W. Tozer
