An Imaginary Oasis-A desperate longing to know God seems to continually evade our experience.

Posted: April 6, 2017 in Uncategorized

It looks real in someone else’s life, they talk about it as though it is, and we can’t get it out of our mind, but ultimately we may conclude that we don’t think we’ll ever find it.

We may have even memorized John 17:3 which says in The Word on the Street “Limitless life is knowing you’re the only God and that I’m the Liberator you sent.” Our ongoing and deepening relationship with God seems to be a mirage, just when we think “finally.” Do we believe this is attainable?

WHAT THIS MEANS: There is no magic formula for knowing and experiencing God more completely as we grow as Jesus’ disciple. But pursuing God with an honest and committed heart while listening and expecting Him to speak to us increases our awareness of His continual presence with us. He becomes a friend , not an acquaintance.
