How To Seek God
All of us who are Christians have heard the scripture in Jeremiah 29:13 which says,”… seek Me and find Me when you search for me with all your heart.”
How many of us really believe if we seek God we will actually find Him? If we truly believe this, why are we chasing after entertainment instead of trying to seek first the kingdom of God?
Finding God Himself has got to be the most amazing find of our lives.
It occurred to me that people spend millions of dollars at archaeological digs. Excavation is a tough process of removing one level of earth at a time. The area must be cleared, mapped out,and then the slow process of the dig begins.
Every bucket must be sifted through in this extremely tedious operation. During this process, time and effort and much patience is required. All this to find old, smelly dead or ancient artifacts.
I realize there is value in this effort, but I believe there is a treasure so much greater to be mined. Will we spend the time, money, and effort learning how to seek the kingdom of God?
We have also heard of the ridiculous government waste found in projects seeking the importance of a frisbee, or a pickle. How do these things compare to gaining wisdom in how to seek God?
How To Seek God Personal Time
During one of my quiet times with the Lord, I became overwhelmed by His presence and His love. As I was reading Psalm 11, this passage stood out in verses 4-5 : “His eyes behold, His eyes test, His countenance looks upon the upright in heart.”
The only way we can qualify as being upright in heart is through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
But it was as if I could feel His eyes penetrating me and making me whole. It was a bit like Superman looking at me with His laser eyes. I could sense something was being healed in me.
As I continued to study the scriptures on how to seek God, I became overtaken with His great love for me and for us all. In many places the Bible, we are instructed to seek God first above other things.
How much better off this world would be if we spent time learning how to seek God first in our lives, hearing His thoughts, feeling His love, and getting His plan for the day!
