Want God or need God?

Many need God to fix things, to get something out of Him. We pour out our worries and hurts on Him. We want Him to listen. Nothing wrong with these, God loves it. He understands.

But do you want to go further?

To want God has to do with raw desire. It’s more of a voluntary choice. It has to do with fascination, wonder, and curiosity for God Himself. He loved you first, you tasted Him, and you want more.

It’s a realization that there is a lot more to God that you don’t know. You seek Him with childlike faith and wonder. You pursue Him like a crazy fan, as a passionate lover, and like a curious explorer.
