What are You Seeking? Who is Seeking YOU??

hands-touching-reaching-outWhat are you seeking in your life right now? What are your needs? What are your desires? What are you hungry for?
One of our most basic and fundamental needs is Love. Every human being has within him or her the hunger to be loved. Why are we so hungry for Love?

We are hungry for it because God created us in His image. But what does it mean to be created in the image and likeness of God? We don’t physically look like Him; we are certainly in no way as powerful, or intelligent; and we are not perfect, but very imperfect.
His image is within us. It is our innate capability to Love.

Love is a relationship, so God has given us the capacity to actually have a personal relationship with Him. We’ve heard many times that God is Love. And we know that’s true. But it doesn’t mean God is a big, immobile valentine. God is not stationary—because Love is not stationary. God is active. He actively seeks us, each and every one of us. He is truly hungering for our love. And because we are made like Him, we are hungering for His love.

Often we don’t realize that God is who we are looking for. We reach for situations and things that we mistake for love.But the Truth is: we have never quite departed from the newborn baby we once were, lying in our cradles, craving to be held and touched, reaching up for our parent. In other words, from the moment of our birth, we are reaching for love.This is the way God planned it. He planned for us to love Him, to seek him—because he IS madly in love with us, and He wants us to be madly in love with Him.

God reaches for us every moment of our lives. Are we reaching back?

Let’s take a look at this beautiful artistic expression by Dan Stevers, http://www.danstevers.com, and listen as if our mighty and infinite God is explaining the hunger He has for us.
