The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4
What am I doing here? I am so high up!

How can we see God as He really is? We all know it’s something we should be doing, but what exactly do we need to do for it to happen? Oftentimes when we wonder about this question, we are pointed to the following verse:
“You will seek Me and find Me [and be able to see me],” says God, “when you seek Me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:13
Catch that? You see, it isn’t a matter of simply wanting to know God better. Actually achieving this goal depends on how badly you want to do so. You have to seek Him with everything in your being, your heart and your emotions.
St. Irenaeus was a Bishop near Lyon, France and he was known for being an early church father and apologist. His writings were critical in the development of Christian theology. He is most famous for writing the book Adversus Haereses which translated means Against Heresies. This book was a detailed attack on Gnosticism which was a serious threat to the beliefs of the church during that time. One of the most quoted lines from St. Irenaeus’ book goes as follows: “The glory of God is a human being fully alive.” When you read that line what does it mean to you? Though St. Irenaeus was primarily associated with the Roman Catholic faith, the point he brings up with that line has a lot of truth behind it.

Rachab. It’s the Hebrew word mentioned in the first part of v.45, meaning “broad, wide.” Contrast it with stenos, the Greek word found in Matthew 7:13-14, meaning “narrow, strait.”
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
Now ask yourself: Am I walking in a wide place or through a narrow gate?
