Where Do We Find God?

When our first father, Adam, disobeyed God, something within him died, something that can be revived only by God's quiet, powerful presence. The universal hunger for God is an indication that God wants to satisfy that hunger.

For some folks the quest for God turns within - morbid introspection. It's akin to searching for something in a dark room, with the lights out, when the object of your search isn't there anyway. God is never found within, but what is discovered is often a cesspool of dark thoughts, lust, hatred and evil. Jeremiah, who knew a lot about human nature, said, "The heart is deceitful above all things" (Jeremiah 17:9).

Others search for God in the obituaries. The God they are seeking isn't alive and interactive. The God they envision is too old, too disinterested, or too far away to worship and know. The one they are sCall unto Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know" (Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV). The chronicles of the Living God aren't recorded in the obituaries. 

So where do you find God? Anyone who comes to the foot of Jesus' cross will find his search for God is over. It is the intersection of time and eternity, of mortal man and invisible God, of our sins and God's forgiveness. It's through what Jesus did that we find God and make peace with Him. Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No man comes to the father except through me" (John 14:6).
