The Pursuit of God A bible study

Many of us say, "I want to know God. I want to be closer to God. I want to experience His presence. And we live our lives… sometimes getting clearer glimpses of God in different experiences, but most often just wondering when we will grow closer to Him. We keep wondering, "When will I truly know God… experience real intimacy with Him." Perhaps, we resign ourselves to wait for heaven.

Do you know that God lays out a pathway for us to know Him more?

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time." (NIV)

Matthew 5:6 - "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." (NIV)
