If you seek Him, He will be found by you;
but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you."
2 Chronicles 15:2
Our response to God greatly determines His presence in our lives. The Lord wants to have fellowship with us, but He will not force a relationship upon us. We cannot reject fellowship with God and expect Him to remain near. He does not merely follow us throughout our day in case we need His assistance. It is an affront to sovereign God to treat Him like a servant who should wait upon us. God desires a close walk with us. He will make His presence real and personal if that is our desire.
Do you say you want to experience God's presence while your actions reveal otherwise? If you say you want to know God better but neglect studying His Word, are you truly seeking Him? Have you regularly forsaken the place of prayer?
We are to continually seek Him, not content to enter a new day without the assurance that God is walking beside us.
