Seek First

Not everyone that knows God seeks him. We must love Him enough to diligently seek Him.

I think that is why I love nature so much! I seek God when I go to water whether it is the beach or a lake. I lived on a small pond and every time I sat outside I met God there. I loved watching the turtles sun on the bank, the ducks, egrets, and the geese flying in formation and skidding to a halt on the water. God was already there waiting for me to seek Him. I went there expecting to see Him and I saw Him. The more I did this the more I desired it.


The God-size hole in our heart gives us the desire to seek God. Everything else tries to pull us away - our sinful nature, the world and the devil. We are told over and over that we are to seek God. And over and over we are told if we seek Him we WILL find Him. Deuteronomy 4: 29, "But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find Him, if you search after Him with all your heart and with all your soul." Proverbs 8: 17, "I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me." Jeremiah 29: 13, "You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart."


We can seek God to receive guidance, wisdom, knowledge and insight for our next steps. Because He knows everything these are our best directions! Jeremiah 29: 12-14, "Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart." Matthew 6: 33, "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." Our faith gives us the desire to seek Him all of our lives. He wants us to seek Him daily in prayer and Scripture and we will be blessed with peace and joy no matter the situation. Seek Him today!
