Long ago, Anselm (1033-1109), Archbishop of Canterbury, prayed:
Teach me to seek you, and reveal yourself to me, when I seek you, for I cannot seek you, except you teach me, nor find you, except you reveal yourself. Let me seek you in longing, let me long for you in seeking; let me find you in love, and love you in finding.
May God bless you as you consider a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Know for your encouragement that we seek God only because he has first come in Christ “seeking and saving that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). Take heart in your search, for as the apostle Paul noted in Athens in the first century A.D., we may feel our way toward God and find him, for, actually, he is not far from each one of us (Acts 17:27). In the New Testament, God has promised that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved (Acts 2:21; Romans 10:13). God never breaks his promises. Claim this promise today!
