What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that thou visitest him. Ps 8:4
How often are we visited by God? Our fingers and toes would not suffice to do the counting. It is everyday of our living life that God relentlessly pursues the ones he created. Each of us are created as spirit beings even before we are given a body. Our purpose in life was written when the spirit man is envisioned by God. He then gives us a mortal body and sends us to this world to accomplish this purpose. But I presume that as soon as we are born here and no more in the presence of God, His heart, full of Father's love starts pinning for us. He yearns for us to talk to Him all the time and share our daily lives with Him, just like a child would with his/her parents.
In the meantime, we are so entangled with the happenings in our daily lives that we eventually forget this bond between our maker and soon it becomes a worn out thread that is hardly holding us to the one who created us. The heart of man is by nature inclined to the Father, and this separation causes it to get restless and most often we do not realize the cause for it. This is when the pursuit of God for Man begins.
Imagine being pursued by God. That is the highest form of flattery. The God of heaven and earth, literally longing to have a relationship with you!? This doesn't come easy. Romans 8:30 says "And those whom He predestined, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (declared free of guilt of sin), and those whom He justified, He also glorified (raising them to a heavenly dignity)."
In my personal life, I've experienced God coming after me. When it happens, it just happens. We will eventually fall for this true love. This renewed love fills our heart with peace and calm, but it also turns our lives upside down, just like any other relationship would. We would have to most often completely re-arrange our lives, our priorities, sometimes giving up on what has become our identity as well. This is struggle, a re-invention of sorts. Definitely we want to hold on to every bit of self, but imagine we are dealing with God Himself here. If He is to display His glory in us, should He not be allowed to dust this vessel?
'Break me, melt me, mold me and fill me. Painful as it may be, create in me a clean heart O God, and renew a right spirit within me. The kind of being that you had envisioned me to be.' If this be our answer to God's pursuit, our lives be transformed to display His might and glory.
