Going After God with Everything in Us!
How do we do that?
One way is to give thanks in all things!
“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18.
Be it bad or good, our God can bring good out of every situation!
( Refer at end to all other scriptures. )
As The Word says, first comes the natural then the spiritual.
We know the natural.
Now with our spiritual senses we can taste; see; hear; feel; and smell after God.
It is very important to exercise and sharpen all five of our spiritual senses!
As I woke up the other morning, I was thinking how all this fits together.
I am closing with some scriptures to put this together. This is only a start.
As always compare scripture with scripture, running references.
It is wise to read verses surrounding them also, to bring more light.
God bless you all.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 2 Timothy 3:16.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28.
“Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.” 1 Corinthians 15:46.
“O taste and see that The LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” Psalm 34:8.
“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” Acts 26:18.
“And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And The LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:17.
“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” Isaiah 30:21.
“And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before The LORD. And, behold, The LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before The LORD; but The LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but The LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but The LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice”… (read more) 1 Kings 19:11-12.
“That they should seek The LORD, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:” Acts 17:27.
