(I have been isolating verses as I work my way through Proverbs. I settle on a verse each morning and then write thoughts that come to me regarding the chosen verse.)
“Those who seek me find me.” – Proverbs 8:17
God is not unfindable.
How do I find Him?
There are visuals. I see Him as the only One who could have created the flowers in our yard. The colors. The design. The fact that they emerge from a glacier, frozen and out of sight. And it happens annually.
When I turn my attention to Who could do such a thing, I know that there is God.
I see His Workings in the hummingbirds that visit our feeder. Nowhere near here for months yet able to fly great distances to join us.
I have times when words come to me. I clear away the haze and cry out to Him.
I don’t place Him in a geographic location. I don’t think of Him eternally away from me in heaven. He is in my midst.
My issue is realizing His proximity and persisting in interaction.
How do I know I’ve “found” Him? The seeking ends.
I can all-day-long find Him. He is near me. His eyes and ears have such quality that my seeking will result in His finding.
What a Savior!
What a God!
