[Paul spoke to the educated people of Athens and explained,] “God [made all people from one man] so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.”

— Acts 17:27

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Our seeking God longs to be sought! God placed his fingerprints all over the universe and gave us places to find life and pursue meaning in that life. He had a purpose for this plan: God wanted us to seek him, the One behind it all. While God is never far away from us, he longs to be sought and found by us. When each of us seeks after God, we not only bless him but also live out one of our life’s essential purposes!

My Prayer…

Heavenly Father, I long to know you more completely — as the old hymn* says to Jesus: “Beyond the sacred page, I seek Thee Lord. My spirit pants for thee O living Word.” Loving Father, I ask that your presence would be recognizable in my daily life. I truly want to get to know you, even as I am known by you. In the name of the Savior, I pray. Amen.


* From the song, “O Sacred Head” by Hans Leo Hassler and Johann Sebastian Bach.
