Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and decisions and how unfathomable and untraceable are His ways!
God is eternal and therefore there is always a deeper place to grow in our relationship with God. There are many who simply settle for a very shallow surface relationship with the Lord. They may make a decision to follow Jesus and make Him Lord and Savior but they allow other things in life to take the place that He deserves. They become distracted by the busyness of life and therefore their growth in their relationship with God is very minimal.
But what God desires is a people who would seek Him with all their heart. He desires a people who would hunger after His presence and who He is more than the food they eat and the air they breath. Many Christians wonder why they struggle in their relationship with God and it simply comes down to the fact that they have allowed things to take the place the Lord deserves in their heart.
Many believe they can put on a nice mask and simply show up to church on Sunday morning. As long as everyone believes I am growing in my relationship with God than I am fine. But this is where we become deceived by the enemy. We allow ourselves to be sold short on all that God has for us because we are pursuing things that have no eternal value.
Priorities in life are everything and we will know what our priorities are by where we spend the most time in our lives. Where we invest a majority of our time are simply the priorities of our lives. Some have made the priority of their lives their family and their marriage. Some have made the priority of their lives their jobs or entertainment. But if we desire to experience the peace of God in all things and the power of the Holy Spirit then we must seek first God’s kingdom and His righteousness. When we simply seek first His kingdom everything in our lives are supernaturally brought into order.
