Intimacy; what every person's soul desires and needs as much as the air we breathe, our desire for intimacy is as natural as our desire for breathing.
We think we desire intimacy with others, but what we really desire is intimacy with God, we are created with a desire to be known and to know God.
People try to fill that void with everything but God, they will never succeed.
God created us, for an intimate personal relationship and all our natural desires should be towards Him.
He did not speak man into existence, God formed man from the dust of the ground with His hands, then He breathed into us His breath no other created being has that intimacy with God, nothing else had life breathed into it, except mankind.
Scripture tells us before we were born He knew us, He formed us, for a purpose.
Angels do not have the privilege we do to be made in the image of God.
Humanity has turned on its creator, we do not seek God, we do not want God, we find ourselves to important and to busy for Him until tragedy finds us.
Why would we not seek an intimate relationship with the one who gives us life?
Who sustains our lives?
Who redeemed our lives?
Do you know God intimately, are you pursuing Him today?
Do our lives show intimacy with God?
Is He first always in our life?
Do you want to know who God is?
Or are you still searching for what you're looking for?
God pursues us, He poured out His grace on us before we were born, He has intervened in our lives always, when our focus changes, the things we should do, we do, because we know it is not us working it is God working in us, through us, for us. It always has been Him and we learn to walk in His ways.
God’s word says this.
“The heavens were made by the word of the Lord, and all the stars, by the breath of his mouth. He gathers the water of the sea into a heap; he puts the depths into storehouses. Let the whole earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spoke, and it came into being; he commanded, and it came into existence.” Psalms 33:6-9 CSB
“Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I stand up; you understand my thoughts from far away. You observe my travels and my rest; you are aware of all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, you know all about it, Lord. You have encircled me; you have placed your hand on me. This wondrous knowledge is beyond me. It is lofty; I am unable to reach it. Where can I go to escape your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there. If I live at the eastern horizon or settle at the western limits, even there your hand will lead me; your right hand will hold on to me. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me, and the light around me will be night” — even the darkness is not dark to you. The night shines like the day; darkness and light are alike to you. For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise you because I have been remarkably and wondrously made. Your works are wondrous, and I know this very well. My bones were not hidden from you when I was made in secret, when I was formed in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in your book and planned before a single one of them began. God, how precious your thoughts are to me; how vast their sum is! If I counted them, they would outnumber the grains of sand; when I wake up, I am still with you. God, if only you would kill the wicked — you bloodthirsty men, stay away from me — who invoke you deceitfully. Your enemies swear by you falsely. Lord, don’t I hate those who hate you, and detest those who rebel against you? I hate them with extreme hatred; I consider them my enemies. Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.” Psalms 139:1-24 CSB
“Then the Lord God formed the man out of the dust from the ground and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, and the man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7 CSB
“For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear. Instead, you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father!” The Spirit himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children, and if children, also heirs — heirs of God and coheirs with Christ — if indeed we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us. For the creation eagerly waits with anticipation for God’s sons to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to futility — not willingly, but because of him who subjected it — in the hope that the creation itself will also be set free from the bondage to decay into the glorious freedom of God’s children. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together with labor pains until now. Not only that, but we ourselves who have the Spirit as the firstfruits — we also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. Now in this hope we were saved, but hope that is seen is not hope, because who hopes for what he sees? Now if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with patience. In the same way the Spirit also helps us in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with unspoken groanings. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because he intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:15-27 CSB
