When I was a teenager I asked my youth pastor a pretty foolish question; I’d only been saved two years, but I sought Him through His word so much that I felt very near to Him. Life was good in every way, and I had a bright future ahead, knowing that I was already going to Bible college.
I asked my youth pastor, “What do you do, when you feel like you’re already where you’re supposed to be when it comes to God?” Common sense-wise, I knew there was more; I recognized that I was very young, and that there was clearly more of life yet to be experienced. But I just didn’t understand how I could be even closer to God than I already was.
My youth pastor tried to hide a smile, and simply answered, “You wait for God to tell you.”
I compare it to marriage. When you stand before that gorgeous person that gets you better than anyone and loves you with everything they’ve got, you just can’t imagine it possibly being any better than it is right then in that moment. But then you’ve been married ten years, and in spite of the hardships and the children and the mortgage, you wouldn’t go back for the world.
Our God is deep. Our God is limitless. When truly following and seeking after who God is, you should never be bored.
“O taste and see that the LORD is good.” Psalms 34:8
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:9,10
Find Him, want Him, and be satisfied.
