The God Chasers

by Tommy Tenney is a book I read several years back, but God lead me back to it today. Tenney wrote some amazing truths, and he quoted some amazing passages of scripture and from other Godly authors as well, to include my favorite, AW Tozer. He prefaces his book by saying that a "true God chaser is not happy with just past truth, he must have present truth. God chasers don't want to just study from moldy pages of what God has done, they're anxious to see what God is doing." Another quote which just jumped out at me tonight, a little while ago, is "True repentance is an awesome flesh-death sight to behold...too much for some to stomach...." .......... "How long has it been since you laid aside everything that ever occupied you and ran down the road of repentance to pursue God?" "When you pursue God with all your heart, soul ,and body, He will turn to meet you and you will come out of it ruined for the world."
That's what I want ..........to pursue God with all that I am, to be totally caught up in Himself, in a 2 Chronicles 7:14 "IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land" kind of way. I want to be seeking God's FACE...............not His hands for what He might do to me, for me, for those I love, etc etc...I want to seek God's face so that I may know Him better, die more and more to myself, lay aside truly everything that has ever occupied me, heart, soul, and body!
