The Pursuit of God, Observed

Blog post by Cinara Lothamer

I had the opportunity to read The Pursuit of God, by Tozer, during the year I was being mentored by Regina Williams – the Titus2 visionary and founder. I remember absorbing the deep content of the book and feeling so challenged as a mentee.

I learned in the very first pages that Tozer wrote The Pursuit of God on his knees and the book is a reflection of the things he learned. Without high school or college training, he educated himself and diligently studied and prayed, seeking the mind of God. Tozer had the Holy Spirit as his teacher. This humbled me.  I had to stop reading the book to grasp in my heart and visualize what it may take to humble myself before God and let Him teach me the meaning of deep, profound intimacy with the Creator of all things.

“The Bible is not an end itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and satisfying knowledge of God, that they may enter into Him, that they may delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.”

The secret is already revealed to all of us that have ears to listen. Do you have ears to hear? Do you diligently study His Word? Do you challenge and encourage your mentees to be on their knees to hear what their heavenly Father has to say? Resources are great, but our main resource is the living Word of God and this is the main avenue from which He speaks to us. Read it! Seek the mind of God, pursue Him with your heart and you will have a sacred and intimate friendship. Our Father is pursuing each one of us and I love how Tozer summarizes it this way “before a man can seek God, God must first have sought the man.

Even though I am on a journey, just like you, to seek the mind and heart of God, I thought to share it with you so you can also do the same with your mentees: seek God with all your heart and experience a more profound and intimate relationship with Jesus, your first love.

“Whoever has ears, let them hear.” Matthew 11:15
“Come near to God and he will come near to you.” James 4:8
