A DEEPER PURSUIT FOR GOD

Jan 12, 2024

DAY ELEVEN OF FASTING

Exodus 25 to 31

God gave Moses the instructions to put up the Tabernacle. It was divided into three sections; the outer court, the inner court and the Holy of Holies.

God was experienced in these three realms but the experiences were of different measures and dimensions. If you wanted a deeper encounter with God in the Holy of Holies, where you would be face to face with the Shekhinah; the visible presence of God, you had to pay a greater sacrifice to go through.

You and I can choose the kind of experience we want with God. It can be the outer court, inner court, or Holy of Holies experience. However, what will change our generation cannot be found in the outer or inner court but only in the Holy of Holies. That is why we must cry to the Lord, to help us.

The most difficult thing in this journey is God bringing us to that place where we are one hundred per cent vulnerable and broken with no hindrance to the flow of the Spirit through us. I pray that the Holy Spirit triggers a pursuit for God in your Spirit, that will never be quenched as long as you live.

Song of Solomon 1:4 Draw me away! We will run after you…

Psalms 80:18 Then we will not turn back from You; Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.

No man can give this to you because it is the doing of the Lord. However, you have to desire to pursue Him and shift from your level. This is not reserved for a preacher man but for each one of us who desires to know and experience God.

Your relevance in this age is determined by your experience with God because solutions are not with men but with God. The greater the encounter, the more of an answer you will be to your community or generation.

Lamentations 3:22-23 [Through] the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. [They are] new every morning; Great [is] Your faithfulness.

God doesn’t deal with expired mercies. Imagine a God who has brand new mercies every single day, what about the dimensions of His glory, grace, goodness, power and much more? Therefore, the honour is not with God but with us: our pursuit reveals how badly we want him (the degree of our hunger and thirst).

If you think you have arrived, that’s okay but like Joshua told the children of Israel; “As for me and my house”, this is not the place God wants me to be. So, I will continue talking about this God, pursuing Him, until it happens and the world will know it one day. (Luke 1:22)

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
