Pursuit Of God

My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. Ps. 63:8 (KJV)

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, `Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.’ Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

A. W. Tozer, Pursuit of God (Chapter One: Following Hard After God)

I came across this in my devotion when I was reading chapter six of Crazy Love¬† by Francis Chan. I liked it so much I decided to share it with you. Is this your prayer? I know it’s mine.
