Whenever you’re having your devotional time and you’re cruising through the Scriptures … do you ever just kind of skim over the verses that read … “seek the Lord”? Do you subconsciously ignore them? Do you think, “Hey, I don’t need to seek the Lord - - I already know Him!”
Well, if ‘seeking the Lord’ is just a once-in-a-lifetime event then I wonder why the Scriptures encourage us over and over to ‘seek Him’?
Maybe we need to take a clue from our good ‘ol friend David in the Old Testament. In Psalm 63:1 David is fellowshipping with God and as he does he acknowledges that He already knows God … yet, he continues to ‘seek Him’!
To us as Believers, as His children, ‘seeking God’ should be a daily journey - - a desire and a hunger that is never satisfied.
Oh, and let’s remember that our search should always be for GOD HIMSELF - - not for what He can give us. I fear that many Christians get frustrated on their daily journey of ‘seeking Him’ because they are oftentimes only giving a list of ‘give me this and give me that.’
Again, let’s look at David, specifically in Psalm 27:8 - - he admits that God commands that we are to ‘seek His face’; and then, look at David’s response … “Your face, O Lord, I will seek.”
Will you be an obedient child today, tomorrow and in the coming days? Will you begin to ‘seek His face’ with your whole heart? If you will begin this journey - - I guarantee - - you won’t be disappointed!
