“God, where are You?” “I need You.” “I want You.” “How can I find You?” Is this the sincere cry of your heart? Is your whole being reaching, searching, longing for God? But somehow you do not seem to find Him.
You are not alone in your search. Men everywhere and in every age have asked for God. Two thousand years ago the rich young ruler came running to Jesus and asked, “Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?” (Mark 10:17). When Peter preached at Pentecost, men asked, “What shall we do?” or “How can we find God?” The prevailing unrest of our turbulent world today is its unvoiced cry for God and his love.
All humans need to find God. Our hearts will be restless until they rest in Him. No other way can peace of mind and rest of soul be experienced than to find God and walk with Him. Jesus says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
We can better understand our need for God when we realize we were made by Him and for Him. None of us are fashioned exactly alike; yet all of us are made in his image and likeness (Genesis 1:26). We are created with living souls that long to be in harmony with our Creator. “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God” (Psalm 42:1-2). Only the living God will satisfy the living soul of man!
The psalmist David summed up his innermost feeling by saying, “I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1). God satisfied his need. David was contented because he knew the peace that comes only when creature and Creator have met. “For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness” (Psalm 107:9).
