Our lives are so focused on searching, searching for truth, love, friendship, work, joy, freedom, and so much more. We may be looking for the best route to becoming the healthy you, or how to be the most productive you at work and in life, but with all these lofty goals, which may be good, our sight and paths have become crowded. Crowded with all good things, but forgetting the key to all happiness in life. The Bible tells us to seek the Lord with all our heart, and if we seek Him with our heart we will find Him.
(Jeremiah 29:13) “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” (Luke 11:9b) “Seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
So, can I ask? Are we seeking the Lord with our whole heart? Are we knocking each and everyday on the door through prayer and supplication to have the Lord rule, and reign in our lives? Theologian and author, C.S. Lewis, said this about seeking God: “Look for Christ and you will find Him. And with Him everything else.” So once we find Him, and let Him reign in our minds and hearts, everything that we worry about will come to rest. And everything we are searching for that is good and holy will be found. In the book of Amos 5:4 it says “Seek me and live;..” Do you desire to live? Then seek Him!
Now I’m not saying if you seek Him all of your biggest dreams and desires will be granted right away, but I am trying to say that God, in due season, and as He sees fit, will bless you, and help you to live. So, my challenge for all my friends is this: This week let’s seek the Lord with all our hearts and live.
