We all have spiritual needs; a need for peace, reassurance and love. We search for meaning, significance and purpose. Many have tried to fill that inner space with material goods, expensive homes and fast cars, yet have wound up empty. Even some spiritual paths have been tried and found wanting. Millions around the world have grown tired of staid, religious tradition and are yearning for a genuine experience of the Divine.
The very fact that we are searching in the spiritual realm is evidence that there is more to this world than what we can see. Some have an awareness of eternity, recognising that our lives stretch beyond our four-score years on this planet. Others recognise that the beauty, intricacy and design of our natural world testify to a greater intelligence behind what is visible. Have you ever thought that your spiritual search might be prompted not by your own need for meaning or belonging, but by your creator desiring to be known?
It is difficult to escape the possibility or the evidence of a creator. We are surrounded with natural beauty, power and grandeur. In the Greek scriptures we read, “since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made ...”(a) We are relational beings, we need human contact. So it is not surprising to think that the One who designed us is also relational, and has made us precisely so that we might know him*. In the 1st Century Yeshua declared that we were made for a relationship with the Divine, “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah, whom you have sent.”(b) Have you heard God's voice calling you? Are you being pursued by your Creator?
He* alone offers us freedom from our past, strength for our journey and hope for our future.
