Right from the very beginning of man´s existence, God has wanted us to be with Him. Ou problem is that we all find a way somehow to step outside of that will. We walk our own way. We choose our own interests. He wants us to be together, and for the most part, He is left alone in that desire. There are though, some who choose not to walk as fallen men walk. There are some who choose to look up. Some recognize this desire that God has for us within their own hearts and they yearn after Him too. These are precious in the sight of the Lord! When God sees pure hearts longing to be with Him as He has always wanted to be with us, then He is greatly pleased. The angles sing glorious songs of praise when they see the pleasure it brings to the Father. Would we like to give back to God what He has forever held out for us? Let us make it our intention today to want to be with God as much as He wants to be with us!
God meant us to see Him and live with Him and draw our life from His smile. A.W. Tozer (The Pursuit of God)
