Ps 53.2 " God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God."
There is a longing on the part of God for our fellowship. I know, that seems crazy. After all if there was ever a sufficient one it is God! But for some reason that I can't seem to get a grip mentally on - he wants to be in my presence. During times of extended seeking we can often approach God as if we are the ones hungering for presence- but we are not alone.
Yes, we have our presnece hunger, but God longs for imtimacy with us. This Spirit inside, crying out "Abba, Abba", was his idea. I don't (can't) take credit for my pursuit of him. I am busy running myself in his direction. But like me, he reciprocates my drawing near.
Good news- it makes the pursuit shorter!
