How Can I Find God
In the heart of every human being is a God-shaped void. A void that can only be filled by the God who created us. Churches around the world are filled with people crying out “how can I find God”. And though God is completely aware of us down to the finest details of our lives, for a variety of reasons, many cannot seem to “find Him”.
Help Me Find God
Depending on others to help one find God is doomed to be a futile venture. This is because, God is not lost. In fact, if our spiritual eyes were opened, we would find that God is surrounding us every moment of every day, waiting for us to invite Him into our lives. Contrary to what many churches teach, and what many people erroneously believe, God is not sovereign in our lives unless we want Him to be, and make it known to Him that we do.
In the third chapter of Revelation verse 20, Jesus said, Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
Finding God Is Easy
Kind of amazing that the One who created all things, including us, is putting forth an invitation like this. Obviously, if He is standing at the door of your heart, you don’t need to go looking for Him. If God is knocking, then it must be up to us to open the door to let Him in. The problem with the request, “How can I find God”, is that in reality, no one can help you find Him because He is always there with you.
Finding God is easy, learning what He is like is another matter. As in any relationship, the only way to get to know someone is to spend time with them. And there is one prerequisite God has for getting to know Him, God said, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
God wants you to get to know all about Him. He has completely revealed Himself through Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “he that has seen me has seen the Father”. All that we need to know concerning what God is like was revealed through Jesus. If you really want God in your life, get to know Jesus. As He said, He stands at the door of your heart and knocks. All you have to do is talk to Him in prayer, He will do the rest.
Keep in mind, as in any relationship, it will take time for you to get to know Him. But if you are faithful to seek above all things to get to know Him, He will surely reveal Himself to you, and you will never again have to say, “Help me find God.”
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” — Matthew 7:7 & 8
