As human beings we are naturally created to cry out for God. And the more we look for him, the more we seek him, the more of him we will experience. The people God will use are those who are hungry and thirsty for more of him.
Besides being totally dependent on parents and looking like them, children also have a natural desire to be in the presence of their mother or father. We all know that children cry. Babies cry a lot! The crying instinct is really a God-given tool that a child uses to draw care and attention to herself.
Sometimes we suppress this craving for Father’s attention and presence – at other times we allow it. But seeking God’s face is a key to receiving his favor. If we would know the Bless-er more, we would not worry so much about the bless-ings.
I feel very good when one of our adult children wants to spend time with me, asks for my advice, or does things that show love and respect. Those are all very rewarding experiences. I believe that every father feels good when a child seeks them out. It is an honor. Having a meaningful relationship with a son or daughter is very rewarding for a parent.
Every parent enjoys his children – and God enjoys his children too! He enjoys it when we want to be with him. When we seek God diligently, we are promised that we will find him.
To be honest, I have not had nearly enough of God’s presence. I want more. If God actually fills the whole universe, then certainly there is much more of his presence available for us!
