God did this so that they would seek him and find him, through he is not far from any of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your won poets have said, We are his offspring. Acts 17:27-28
Long before you began seeking the Lord, he had designs on you, for glorious living. His over-all purpose embraces and enfolds you, helping you understand who you are, giving meaning to your life. In Him you live and move and have your being. Even before the earth’s creation He chose you as the focus of His love, to be made whole and holy by His love. Until you came to know Him as your Savior, your life was painfully incomplete. Your inner being was rife with gaping holes. Only His limitless love is sufficient to fill all that emptiness! The healing and wholeness you are finding in the Lord will continue to increase as you mature in His ways.
His love not only completes you; it also makes you holy. His awareness that he loves you with perfect unending love helps you break free from sinful ways. Growth in holiness is a process, of course, and sometimes is painful. But the pleasures of His boundless love outweigh any amount of pain and trouble you experience. When you are suffering, talk with Him about your struggles. Pour out your heart to Him. As the Lord soothe you with His loving presence, He will reassure you of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone in you!
