“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, [saying], yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn thee” Jeremiah 31:3.
God is saying that he wants a personal relationship with his people! God wants to be more than just a provider to His people! He loves to give and to answer prayer; but many times we find ourselves asking, and taking and never being grateful for what God is doing and have done for us in our lives!
For example: many of us are like the ten lepers whom Jesus healed, but only one came back and gave God glory for healing Him!
What is God saying? He is saying that many times we don’t even take the time to fall to the feet of our Lord to say “Thank you God” for all he has done for us, but instead we walk away as though we are entitled and God had to heal us! (Luke 17:15).
I hear god saying that many times he has two reasons for with drawing Himself from us! One is to drive people into deeper and more intimate communication (relationship and intimacy) with him. Take David for instance, when he was in the wilderness of Judah he realized that God was his God, and that he would rise up early to seek Him! Why? Because his soul was thirsty for Him, his flesh longed for his God in the dry and thirsty land, where no water was. We must realize this as well if we are ever to draw close to Him and desire a personal relationship with our Lord (Psalm 63:1).
God is saying that it is time for all who are lonely and who miss the presence of The Lord in their live, to draw near unto Him and He will draw nigh unto you! Cleans your hands from sin, purify your hearts and stop being wishy-washy in your relationship with Him and you will see His revelations, His glory and will receive visitation form Him, saith The Lord (James 4:8).
God wants us to remember, the reason anyone gets any revelation in the first place is that God loves us, not because we are so great, but He wants to help and to bless us, and wants a relationship with us. But He does not want to be thought of as only “the Provider, the Give,r” from whom we can get things and then go our own way! He wants us to have a relationship with Him.
God is grieved when all we do is ask for things and we never take the time to say “Thank you”; nor do we take the time to know Him and all His glory, saith The Lord! How would you feel if your children only thought of you as a provider for all there needs? For example: how does a mother feel when she works hard to make a nice dinner and then kids come in and scoff it down in two minutes so they can watch a television show and leave without even saying “Thank you”? She wanted more from her children than just to be thought of as “the cook” or “the provider.” So it is with God.
There is more to life than just providing for others. God wants our love and to have a relationship with us. When there is unclear revelations, communication etc.., we are driven deeper and deeper into his heart as we seek understanding from Him. We want to know what He meant and that means we need to go to Him for the understanding.
When God is not answering us, it is not because he does not care, saith The Lord, but it is because he desires for us to draw closer to Him and to seek him the more for the answers to our prayers. As a result of seeking Him, we will get a closer relationship with Him, more intimacy, more revelations and insight regarding His will for our own personal lives and the lives of others, saith The Lord! God has not forsaken you! For He is saying that I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith The Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end, saith The Lord (Jeremiah 29:11).
Isn’t it high time to seek the Lord? His loving kindness, which is better than life, our soul should long to know Him; our lips should desire to praise Him, and to meditate on Him day and night, saith The Lord! God is waiting on us. It is His desire for each and every one of us to baste in His glory and His presence as we bow to worship Him!
What are you waiting on!
