Eternal Obsession: the Quest to Know God Intimately
There is only one thought, one interest, one preoccupation which righteously qualifies as an obsession: God Himself. Actually, for Him not to be our obsession is to fall far short of the life He intended us to know with Him.
Knowing God is not mere intellectual knowledge - rather it is a full, absolute, complete, intimate knowledge impregnated with experience on the highest degree. Knowing God is to experience God intimately. To know Him is to experience Him - the two cannot be separated. Furthermore, knowing Him and experiencing Him is an opportunity that has been made available to everyone, everywhere. We can all know Him intimately. That is what eternal life is all about. Knowing God intimately is a theme that will continue throughout eternity.
Eternal Obsession: the Quest to Know God Intimately answers many persistent questions that have not before been addressed about intimacy with God and living beyond the challenges of life. Compiled from several years of Biblical study, ministry, and personal experience, the book provides readers with key insights and comprehensive direction in developing intimate friendship with the Lord, living in victory, and experiencing eternal happiness. It takes readers through the principles of intimacy with God and becoming one with Him. It unveils the mystery of true worship, love and sacrifice - helping readers to achieve the closer relationship with God that they seek. The book uncovers myths and misconceptions about intimacy with the Lord and about the trials and challenges that are encountered in life. It outlines simple truths that will lead readers into deeper understanding and relationship with God.
Eternal Obsession draws a unique correlation between an active relationship with the Lord and every realm of life and living - revealing how intimately knowing God is the key to everything.
Part I: lays out the elements for developing intimacy with the Lord. It reveals the importance of focus, thirst, pursuit, and consistency in obtaining a continual intimate relationship.
Part II: addresses the requisites for developing oneness with God. Oneness in relationship is more often developed in the presence of trial, challenge, and conflict than it is in their absence. Part II discloses correct ways to deal with difficulties and struggles, and how to seize such times as opportunities to grow closer to the Lord.
Part III: reveals how to insure a continual, eternal intimacy with God by developing devotion. This final part explores undiscovered continents of Spiritual Living and encourages readers to continue in their own search for greater dimensions in God. It conveys the importance of keeping Jesus as First Love in every area of life - because it is complete devotion to Him that keeps the intimacy alive and flourishing.
This book addresses what it means to know God on an intimate level. It is about experiencing life in His Presence, so that knowing Him intimately would no longer be just a concept, but a reality in life. If you have wanted to know and experience God intimately, but you have not known how - be encouraged that God is already reaching out in love and desire for you. And He will not just meet you half-way. He has already stepped over the line and is just waiting for you to turn around and slip into His embrace. There are infinite universes just awaiting your exploration - universes saturated with the glory and presence of God Himself. And as you get to know Him, you will find that knowing Him really is the key to everything.
The book was inspired by the author’s own journey of spiritual hunger and quest to know God intimately. Encouraged by the writings of Brother Lawrence and Rev Frank Laubach, the author’s desire in the book is to continue the legacy by leading future generations into the presence of God.
