Oh, that we might know the Lord! Let us press on to know him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring. Hosea 6:3 (NLT)
Pressing on, pressing in, that we might know the Lord. That is our prime goal and objective. Knowing and worshiping our Lord God is what makes everything else work. We may be having good times, or bad times. Mountain top experiences or deep valleys to walk through. No matter where we are, we must press in to know God more.
Notice how this passage and so many others paint the picture of us pressing in toward God? Why? Because no matter what, God hasn’t moved; He is the steadfast Rock. And it is up to us (with the help of the Holy Spirit), to press on and press in to Him.
Remember the woman with the issue of blood that pressed through the crowd to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment? Matthew 9:20-22 . The only way she got through that crowd was to keep pressing on and making her way through every hindrance, every obstacle between her and Jesus.
Receive that as your example today. Press on, press in, don’t let anything stop you or hold you back. Knowing Christ more, will be worth every effort and sacrifice it takes.
