Seek God

The admonition in the Bible to seek God is repeated about a dozen times, and each time it is, there is a blessing attached. My favorite one is “those who seek the Lord will not be in want of any good thing” God says, “If you seek Me, I will let you find Me, and if you draw near to Me, I will draw near to you”.”If you seek Me with all of your heart, you will find me.” What exactly does that mean to seek God? It means that we truly want more of God in our life, God waits to be wanted. God will not be second place in anyone’s life, if we start putting other things and activities before God, He will “hide His face from us”. Life without God’s presence around us is depressing, without joy, and lacking in energy. Psalms 16:11 says, “In Your presence is fullness of joy”. We seek God by reading the Bible, by giving Him time in prayer, by gathering together with other believers, and by worshiping Him. Psalms 42:1-2 are a couple of my favorite verses, “as the deer pants for water, so my soul thirsts for you O God”. The more crazy life gets the more I seek God’s presence, because His presence gives me peace, joy, strength, and great security in regards to the future.
