How do you seek God? You pursue a relationship while simultaneously submitting to his rule, his authority, where he has the last word over your word, over your thoughts, over how you were raised. Distress will wake you up. We’d better get right with God so our distress and lack of peace can be corrected by the God who gave us the distress. You know why? Because that’s what he’s after all the time. He’s after this relationship. But we’re out of alignment, we’re not in alignment with him. And he’s letting us know through these things that happen.
