The – Right – Pursuit …“Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near”

The life that once was self-centered, seeking only the blessed life through the pleasures of it, has been transformed into a life that’s main desire is to know God. As we know Him it brings pleasure to Him and Him alone. We no longer live a life that is self-absorbed, seeking what is only best for ourselves. Where the pleasures of this world once had a hold, it has been replaced with a big heart for others. It has become compassionate generous, and over-all caring for those who are around us.

A heart filled with the love of God. He first loved us.

Our love for others is our grateful response to the love God first demonstrated to us. (1 John 4:19 TPT)

Instead of being driven and pushed in every direction for more, there is now a contented heart that has been established by peace. No longer effected by the circumstances of the day. We have found the narrow path, the path that brings us forth to life.

It is here in this place that our lives start to operate in abundance.

Now then that narrow door leads to a narrow road that in turn leads to life. It is hard to find that road. Not many people manage it. (Matthew 7:14 Voice)

When we make God first in our lives everything else comes into proper alignment. As we place God as the head over our lives, we have the ability to have Him in control moving us forward. This is all according to His greater master plan that can only get unlocked with our participation. When we make the decision to step out of the chaos with no order, and into a life of order, it is a total paradigm shift that takes place and immediately starts to move us to higher ground.

“So above all, constantly seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness, then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly” (Matthew 6:33 TPT)

The narrow way has to be found. It is also the starting point of redemption. We all enter the world on the broad wide path, this is the reality. Yet on this path we are given understanding at some point of a better way. The bible says that we are blessed when we recognize that we are spiritually bankrupt. We are blessed when we have reached a desperation for God.

Until we reach this point, we are not able to enter into God’s Kingdom.

“Great blessings belong to those who know they are spiritually in need. God’s kingdom belongs to them. (Matthew 5:3 ERV)

We enter into the understanding of just how ship wrecked we are without God and at that moment we are called blessed beyond measure. We are given the ability to have communion with God when we realize our need to put our total confidence in Him. When we totally surrender, we are called blessed, enriched, happy fortunate, with the sense of being filled with a great abundance of happiness, full of prosperity.

So, when we take His word and apply it to our lives, we receive everything else we could ever desire. We are filled up to overflowing with His goodness and it establishes within our hearts and fills the empty void that only He can fill.

Our delight is in our total surrender putting our full confidence in Him.

This is the blessed life the right pursuit. This leads to a life that is rich beyond what one could ever imagine.  A life that has set itself on a course to find God and once you find that great prize you sell all to buy that pearl of great price.

Prayer: Dear Lord you are that pearl of great price. You are the pathway that is narrow but once we have understood it, we are grateful for it. You are the door to your Kingdom and the only requirement is that we recognize how ship wrecked we are without you.

Verse: “Or again, the kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he has found a single pearl of great value, he goes and sells all his possessions and buys it”. (Matthew 13:45-46 Phillips)
