Art of Living #33

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #33 : "My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?" (Psa 42:2).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : I have always thought why should some people desire God while others do not even like to think about or talk about Him even for a while. Even some others would like to destroy us if we start to talk about this one and the only living God who loves all humans unconditionally and equally. The reason why this ungrateful and barbaric reaction comes in to humans generally is because as the Scripture says that "the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one." (1 John 5:19). In other words, all humans who have not still received Jesus as their Lord and Saviour to become the children of God have been programmed to think by the devil that God is a tyrant and that he is bad enough to cause all the bad things in all human lives. Satan points out to natural calamities and make people think, 'If God loves all humans why should natural calamities should occur and destroy the innocent lives of many many children and people alike?' But the answer is, God is so righteous that he is looking to establish righteousness on earth because of His love towards humans. He doesn't want all humans to destroy each other and forever be lost in sin.

God wants man to seek Him with his spirit and desire God with their soul, for this he causes judgment to come upon the earth and as a result make humans understand and learn righteousness of God (Isa 26:9). As sin increases the reminder about His grace and the succeeding judgment of all humans is being reminded to all humans alike as in a megaphone loudly and clearly. God wants man to seek Him because He knows that the end of those who live for themselves in sin is a deadly death of spirit, soul and body for eternity ahead (Rom 6:23). God loves all humans alike that He doesn't want any of them to be seperated from Him and His Love for eternity ahead. This is the reason even though the end of the world is in sight yet God delays it as much as possible through His mercies towards all humanity (1 Tim 2:3-4). O what a Loving God we have!!!

In our end times, all the world is thirsting for success as defined and focused on human improvement, but we as godly people of God should be thirsting after God, our living and loving God who lives for us and loves us at all times. He is the true friend who will never leave us nor forsake us to our very end. He has promised to be our guide even until the day we will die (Psa 48:14). The world never even wants to think about God, but we as the children of God should not only be thinking of Him but also always be thirsting for Him as a deer pants for the water brooks (Psa 42:1). We should allow the Holy Spirit to reprogram our soul in such a way so that our soul will pant for God. While I was flying in a air plane I was telling the Lord, "Lord, it would be wonderful if I would face my end now to see you immediately." In other words I was saying to God, "When shall I come and appear before God?". Is you soul thirsting for God like that? If you are, ask God to increase your thirst for Him or else if you still do not have any thirst for God, ask God to give you so that you can begin to seek God sincerely. Praise the Lord! THE SOUL THAT THIRST FOR THE LORD WILL BE LIKE A WATERED GARDEN WHICH ALWAYS WILL HAVE THE FRAGRANCE OF CHRIST WITHIN TO ENLIGHTEN AND ENCOURAGE SOMEONE. Be thirsty enough to bless someone! Much Blessings.....
