A Woman’s Pursuit Of God’s Presence

Have you felt disqualified from destiny because of your past? Rahab may have felt that way. She is a wonderful trophy of God’s grace and merciful intent. Yet, she didn’t start out that way. As you may know, her past included prostitution. She pushed past her feelings of disqualifications and made a declaration, “Your God is God.” The first step toward realizing the destiny for God’s woman is her pursuit of God’s presence. I call it pursuing God’s presence and not so much the gift.
Pursuing the presence of God
- Seek first the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink nor the body. But is peace, joy, love and other fruits of the Spirit. Don’t seek your destiny, seek Him and you will find your destiny (His desired end).
- Seek him with all your heart. He has promised when we seek him with a whole heart we will surely find him.
- Seek humbly. The Psalmist writer encourages us with, “The Lord is good and glad to teach the proper path to all who go astray; he will teach the ways that are right and best to those who humbly turn to him…Where is the man who fears the Lord? God will teach him how to choose the best (Psalm 25:8,9,12). In other words, seek God humbly and he will teach you how to choose your destiny.
- Seek through meditating on God’s Word. In defining the word meditation, we can see more clearly how to meditate on God’s Word. Meditation means to ponder, think about a lot, and mutter under your breath. In the first book of Joshua, God instructs Joshua (now us) how to have good success in everything he does. He says to meditate on His word day and night. So, it becomes clear to have good success, we will think about, ponder and mutter under our breath.
- Seek continually. Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually (I Chronicles 16:11). The Physician Luke admonishes us to, “Keep on asking and you will keep on getting; keep on looking and you will keep on finding; knock and the door will be opened. Everyone who asks, receives; all who seek, find; and the door is opened to everyone who knocks (Luke 11:9-10).
