Pursuit of God.

We get told that we should be in pursuit of God, don’t we?

We often approach the pursuit of God like we’re trying to step on our own shadow: repeatedly stepping forward, trying to plant your foot squarely in its middle, only to find that it has moved just past you once again.

We run after God to attempt to somehow quench this feeling that He is unreachable, only to find the feeling really hasn’t changed after all our efforts. We end up feeling exhausted and alone.

We miss the clear truth that we were already standing on our shadow, before we ever took that first step.

The pursuit of God is not about chasing after him, not the way we’ve been thinking. It’s not really our pursuit. He’s chasing after us! Glued to us, closer than our own shadow.
All we need to do is be still, and know He is God.
