Press On

on July 27, 2011

“Oh, that we might know the Lord! Let us press on to know him! Then he will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.” Hosea 6:3 NLT 

This is our goal – to know HIM.  What does “press on to know him” mean to you?  It sounds like it involves some kind of effort, doesn’t it?  It is a deliberate act to know Him.  Once we apply or dedicate or commit to ourselves that we will “press on to know him”, we can be confident He will respond to us.   This verse says “as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in the early spring.”  That means we have assurance He will respond as He says He will.  Do you ever stop to think about whether the sun will rise tomorrow?  I don’t because I’m confident the sun will always shine for us.  Well, it’s the same with God.  If we seek Him, He will be found by us.

    It’s going on right now. To know Him at a deeper level, a price must be paid. “I must decrease and He must increase.” He will reveal Himself to those who pay that price.
