“Desire To Know God”
Whatever arouses a person’s desire, indicates the person’s affection. Your desire over anything is a prove of your affection. Desire is the key for measuring the quality of affection a someone indicates over something or a person.
In knowing God, we must engage in personal adventure. Until knowing Jesus becomes a desire the chances of seeing him in actual sense through encounter remains an illusion. Knowing God must be a person’s decision and its intention clearly defined. The beauty of realizing anything is rooted in having a personal encounter with God.
The quest for materialism is the highest height of distraction in knowing Jesus Christ. Whatever that kills the desire of knowing Jesus Christ terminates the affection in which we make contact with divinity. Where there is desire, there is affection, when affection is enacted there is an encounter.
Apostle Paul in all the manifestation of the gifts of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, the quest in knowing Jesus Christ beyond what he has manifested through divine enablement was yet still Paramount in his life.
Until Knowing Christ becomes specific and Paramount in a persons life, it will be impossible for the person to live life beyond the natural realm. No one can enjoy and have the best of God without knowing him. The true beauty of life, is rooted in our ability to make contact with the unseen realm which transcends the natural human comprehension.
Exploit in any endeavour of life is foundational in knowing God. A person who wants to be a shaker of the world through the power manifested by the Holy Spirit must be a person who has access to the God of heaven through divine encounter.
Did you know that your duty is to know God. He is so vast and mighty in power and wisdom; which makes it impossible for any one to say I know all about God. No! We only know him but in part. The courage of pressing to knowing Jesus through the study of the bible, constant fellowship with him takes us into certain depth of his divine abilities.
Those who are kingdom conscious are dominated with the affection they have for the God of this kingdom. You cannot desire to know Christ without being heavenly dominated.
Colossians 3:1 ” Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.( NIV)
All who want to know Christ only see him where he is seated. These people are firstly raised from the cares of this world, they don’t pursue materialism, they seek God’s kingdom firstly in attracting his blessings.
Mathew 6:33 says ” But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (NIV) .
Anytime you focus on seeing and knowing Christ, there is a release of your needs which are triggered by your desire and love in knowing him. Knowing Christ is access to power, revelation and it guarantees access to His unending blessings.
The beauty of this world is nothing to compare to when you constantly engage in the things that has the power to attract divine encounter. In your pursuit of knowing God, seek him in sincerity and you will never regret the wise choice you made in your hunger to know Him. Shalom!!
