My dogs run after many things! But I’ve never seen them chase anything that doesn’t hold the promise of a yummy reward! Throughout your life, you’ve probably pursued many things as well. No doubt, most of these also had attached to them the promise of a delicious reward. Today, I’d like to encourage you to pursue (run after with all your heart!) Jesus Christ. The reward of pursuing him is unlike anything else!
Place him at the top of your priority list. Listen to his voice above all others, and run after him! Whether the rewards are seen in this life (tangible or intangible rewards), or the next (eternal rewards), one thing is for sure—Pursuing God can satisfy the deepest parts of your soul like nothing else can.
The greatest reward of chasing after God is finding him! God says to us—“lf you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me” (Jeremiah 29:13). And if we find him, we find everything we need! He holds the treasures of heaven—love, Joy, peace, strength, rest, and all good things!
Run after God today, dear friend, and find in him all that you need!
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.Matthew 6:33
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.Matthew 22:37
