Where Can You Go To Meet With God? Psalm 42:1-2

Where can you go to meet with God? If he is all-present then he should be here right now but somehow we do not sense he is with us.

"As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. Where can I go and meet with God?" Psalm 42:1-2. NIV.

We all have a thirst for something. We keep trying to satisfy our thirst for some meaning in our lives; we try with material possessions, relationships status or something else. We try to find the answer it may be we are looking at the wrong thing.

The word picture of the deer panting for the streams of water expresses passion and desire to the point of death, for water is essential for life. The deer in the word picture is desperate for water, so we should be desperate for God. We need to seek God with a longing and thirst.
  • Do we have such passion?
  • Do we thirst for God?
  • Are we willing to know the living and true God?
  • Do we desire to meet with God?
There is a barrier between us and God. It is an ugly barrier and it is known by an ugly word, sin; but God sent his son to break down the barrier and make it possible to meet with God. When Jesus died on the cross he paid the price for our sins and satisfied the judgment of holy God. The resurrection makes clear the judgment is complete and eternal life is available in Christ.

God makes the way to us and invites us to come to him. The where is not a place but a person, Jesus said, "I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except by me." John 14:6. The Gospel of John says, "To as many as received him who believe on his name he gave the right to become the sons of God." John 1:12.

Jesus invites us to come to him; in him, we find the fulfillment of all our thirst.
