Gods Purpose That The Nations Seek After Him
by: Carel

Hi Tiena,

Paul also touches on this inborn restless longing for the divine that God has placed in every human, even though we may not be fully aware of it. We read in Acts 17:22-29 NLT:

“So Paul, standing before the council, addressed them as follows: ‘Men of Athens, I notice that you are very religious in every way, for as I was walking along I saw your many shrines. And one of your altars had this inscription on it: “To an Unknown God.” This God, whom you worship without knowing, is the one I am telling you about.”

“He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, and human hands can’t serve his needs – for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries.”

“His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him – though he is not far from any of us. For in him we live and move and exist. As some of you own poets have said ‘We are his offspring.’ And since this is true, we shouldn’t think of God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone.”

Let us pray that in our day the nations will truly follow God's purpose of seeking Him and finding Him!
