Seeking God starts with needing Him. Let us face it. We never seek something that we do not need. It is the same with seeking God. We only start to genuinely seek God the moment we realize that we truly need God in our lives.
All who seek God have experienced a hole in their lives that nothing and no one else could ever satisfy. Unless a person experience this need of God, he or she could not honestly seek God.
Some may ask, “why would I need God?” or “why am I in need of God?” The answer is simply because we are not perfectly self-sufficient whether mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. We lack the ability or the power to live life with meaning and purpose without the power of God working in our lives.
But he answered, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'”– Matthew 4:4 (WEB)
We need God. We need Jesus Christ. So, seek Him while there is still time. While breath and strength are our comrades in this earthly life, seek the Lord. Seek Jesus. It is not only rewarding to do so, but seeking Jesus is finding life.
Seek you Yahweh while he may be found; call you on him while he is near:– Isaiah 55:6-9 (WEB)
let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to Yahweh, and he will have mercy on him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says Yahweh.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Tomorrow may be too late. Start seeking God today. Now. Let us forsake our sinful ways and unrighteous thoughts. God’s sweet words of assurance are that He “abundantly pardons”. No sin is too great for God to not forgive us. He is unlike man that keeps a record of sins. He forgives lavishly and cleanses us from sins when we put our faith in Jesus Christ. He enables us to turn away from sin and live godly lives through the power of the Holy Spirit. He changes our hearts from hearts of stones to hearts of flesh. He is a loving, gracious God, full of compassion and mercy. We only need to come to His presence in total surrender.
Seek God with a glad heart. May your days be God-seeking and God-fulfilling!
