How Desperate Are You?

Pamela Haddix asks how desperate we really are to find and worship God:

I was reminded of these crazy dreams last week when I read Paul’s sermon on Mars Hill where he said,

“And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, . . . that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist” (Acts 17:26-28a).

I feel like Paul at first said we should “seek God” and then decided to kick it up an notch and said, “No, grope for Him!”

When I stop to think about what groping for God might look like, I wonder if He sees me passionately grope for Him like I did for my baby girl in the night. Whether it’s in those moments that are so dark I can’t see my hand in front of my face, or when there’s so much clutter my view is blocked, or the rest of the time when He’s promised me that there’s so much more to be found – do I get on my hands and knees and grope for God until I find Him? The Acts’ verse says He’s “not far”!

As Pamela points out, we’re all on our hands and knees, groping desperately for God. Or at least we should be. Read the whole post here.
