"With my whole heart have I sought you" - Psalms 119:10a
When two people are in love, they can't bear to stay away from each other too long. They call each other before going to work, then all day at work, and on the way home from work. This is the same with what a believer in Christ will do, if he truly loves the Lord. He will continually seek after Him with a desire to follow Him.
When asked the question “Are you a God Seeker,” one who consistently and persistently follows the Lord no matter what the weather is like - when the stormy winds blow or through the highs and lows of life, what would be your response?
A true follower of Christ is one who consistently and persistently follows the Lord no matter what things are going on in their life. Through sickness or health, richness or poor, good times or bad times, a true follower of Christ will pursue God at all times.
Sometimes you will never see or hear from a person until they need something. Is this the kind of relationship you have with God? Can you approach His throne at any time without the conviction that it is the first time for a long time since you’ve been there?
God wants His people to get to know Him and to consistently and persistently follow Him. But you can’t continue to stand Him up, or only show up when it's convenient, or when you are in trouble.
Consistently and persistently follow hard after the Lord, as you do with everything else you desire after in your life. This is what love for another will do.
