The Burning Desire of Missing God

The Burning Desire of Missing God

by Jose Viana

Is that possible, to miss God? I can tell you this, it is possible to miss a time of your life where you we're closer to Him then you are now. You miss the late night conversations. The consoling touch of the Holy Spirit. The calming peace in difficult situations. Yes, it's possible to miss Him. The psalmist pens this so beautifully in Psalm 42, As the deer pants for streams of water,     so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.     When can I go and meet with God? He writes that as a deer pants for water he pants for his God. You don't pant for any reason, you do it when you're tired, exhausted, strained, weary that's when you pant. When our bodies become tired and dehydrated, we need water. When our soul becomes dehydrated only God can replenish it. He expresses his thirst for that intimacy and doesn't just say God, but my God. He knew who his God was and what he was missing out on! So he schedules a date. Pick a time, pick a place God, "When can I go and meet with God?" You can really hear the determination in his voice, the desire to restore that relationship. He asks "when" can I go, he doesn't ask where because it doesn't matter, he'll go anywhere. He doesn't ask how, because it doesn't matter he'll do anything. He asks "when", why? Because he needed it now!  My prayer is that you never feel the way the psalmist did, look to get closer to God everyday.
