Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Return to Me,” says theLord of hosts, “and I will return to you.”
God places much of the burden of what we will become on our response to Him. Ifwe have drifted from God, His call is to return to Him. God promisesthat if we will return, He will immediately renew His relationshipwith us. James 4:8 promises that if we draw near to God, He will drawnear to us. Matthew 7:7 guarantees that if we seek Christ, we willfind Him. Much of the Christian life rests upon our response and our desire to experience God to the fullest.
Why is it that someChristians seem to go so much deeper in their walk with God thanothers? Why have some had such powerful intercessory prayer ministriesthat have changed the courses of nations? Why has God chosen to anointthe words of some so that, when they speak or pray or preach, it isobvious that their words are consecrated by God? It is because theseindividuals have committed themselves to pursue God until His presenceis powerfully real in their lives. They have decided to settle fornothing less than a vibrant relationship with God, and He has honoredtheir desire. Have you become complacent in your relationship withGod, or are you hungering for more? Don’t become satisfied with arelationship with God that is broken by sin and void of the power ofthe Holy Spirit. You have just as much of God’s powerful presenceavailable to you as the greatest saint in Christian history! Return toGod. There is so much more in store for you if you will return to Him.He awaits your response.
