We’re Restless! God’s Relentless!!

Standard

So many restless souls looking for God…

Humans seeking rest for the soul…

Restless…

Restless without God…

And restless for God…

Even with so many other people around…

“I think of a time…

That we are not living in now…

When injustice will cease…

When hatred will be overcome with love…

When grace will reign supreme!

And I get restless for that final course…

Are you restless with me, my friends?”

-Jon Foreman from Switchfoot at Heaven Fest 2012-

Isaiah 11:6-9

“The wolf will live with the lamb,  

the leopard will lie down with the goat,

the calf and the lion and the yearling together;  

and a little child will lead them.

The cow will feed with the bear,  

their young will lie down together,  

and the lion will eat straw like the ox.

 The infant will play near the cobra’s den,  

and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest.

They will neither harm nor destroy on all my Holy mountain,

for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord   

as the waters cover the sea.”

“Deep down,

there’s a place within each of us

that is made for one thing—

a relationship with God.

No matter how hard we try to cover it up

or fill it with something else,

we will never be satisfied.

Our hearts will remain restless

until they find their home with God.

That deep, hidden part of you is there,

even if you haven’t realized it until now.”

Jesus offers rest to all who will come to Him.

Matthew 11:28-29

“Come to Me,

all you who are weary and burdened,

and I will give you rest.

Take My yoke upon you

and learn from Me,

for I am gentle and humble in heart,

and you will find rest for your souls.”

God wants us to search for Him while He can be found.

James 4:8

Come near to God

and He will come near to you…”

In searching and praying to know the truth about Him…

He allows Himself to be manifest to you.

James 1:5-7

“So, if any one of you is lacking in wisdom,

let him keep on asking God,

for He gives generously to all

and without reproaching;

and it will be given him.

But let him keep on asking in faith,

not doubting at all,

for he who doubts

is like a wave of the sea

driven by the wind and blown about.

In fact,

let not that man suppose

that he will receive anything from Jehovah;”

We’re restless to find God…

We’re restless for Him to come back for us!

   God’s relentless to find us!

He won’t give up!

Song of Solomon 8:6

“Set Me as a seal upon your heart,

as a seal upon your arm,

for love is strong as death,

jealousy is fierce as the grave.

It’s flashes are flashes of fire,

the very flame of the Lord.”

God’s relentless in pursuing you…

‘Til He has all of you…

Not just a part…

Don’t stay restless…

Relentlessly pursue Him…

“Til you have all of Him!

You won’t relent

Until You have it all

My heart is Yours

I’ll set You as a seal upon my heart

As a seal upon my arm

For there is love that is as strong as death

Jealousy demanding as the grave

And many waters cannot quench this love

Come be the fire inside of me

Come be the flame upon my heart

Come be the fire inside of me

Until You and I are one

John 4:23

“Yet a time is coming

and has now come

when the true worshipers

will worship the Father

in the Spirit and in truth,

for they are the kind of worshipers

the Father seeks.

God is Spirit,

and His worshipers

must worship in the Spirit

and in truth.”

2 Chronicles 16:9

“For the eyes of the Lord

range throughout the earth

to strengthen those

whose hearts are fully committed to Him…”

Relentless!

Luke 15:3-7

“Then Jesus told them this parable:

Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep

and loses one of them.

Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country

and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?

And when he finds it,

he joyfully puts it on his shoulders

and goes home.

Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says,

‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’

I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in Heaven

over one sinner who repents

than over ninety-nine righteous persons

who do not need to repent.'”

Luke 15:8-10

“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins

and loses one.

Doesn’t she light a lamp,

sweep the house

and search carefully until she finds it?

And when she finds it,

she calls her friends and neighbors together and says,

‘Rejoice with me;

I have found my lost coin.’

In the same way, I tell you,

there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God

over one sinner who repents.’”

Your God is relentless for you!!
