I think deeply about a quote from Tozer’s The Pursuit of God. It’s this:
“Always, everywhere, God is present, and always He seeks to discover Himself. To each one He will reveal not only that He is, but what He is. He did not have to be persuaded to discover Himself to Moses. . . God’s promise of self-revelation is literally true. . . Our pursuit of God is successful because He is forever seeking to manifest Himself to us.”
He is forever seeking to manifest Himself to us. Our pursuit of God will succeed.
I think about how much I plead with Jesus to work in our lives, to move among us, and to reveal Himself. I imagine God someone hesitating and not wanting to do so, when, in fact, He wants to do this even more than my wanting of it.
It doesn’t depend on my right asking, my right behavior, or some right combination of this or that technique or material I present in a speaking situation. No! God is forever seeking to reveal Himself to each person, so teaching and speaking about God begins with inviting receptivity to this eager, loving Savior.
