Hello friends! 🔆
Indeed! It’s time for believers to fasten the rate of seeking God everyday! Yes, it’s a daily process of seeking and finding. New Testament saints have been called to become like Jesus. If that has to happen, then we must seek Him daily, that is, search the Scriptures, pray and keep ‘chewing the cud’ of His Word.
Moving on now, to the second part of seeking the Lord in our everyday life:
Seeking through prayer
Daniel is a beautiful example of a man seeking God through prayer, daily. He was a man of prayer. His friends and colleagues were witnesses of Daniel’s prayer life and the way God led him through in the kingdom of King Nebuchadnezzar. During the captivity of the children of Israel, Daniel understood from the books that the desolations of Jerusalem would end only after 70 years. See what Daniel did — And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: Daniel 9:3. Daniel prayed and God heard him.
Seeking early means to seek earnestly, without any distractions. David sought the Lord earnestly. This was a man who loved God dearly and thus, God in turn testified about David — a man after my own heart! Acts 13:22. What an honour! O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; Psalms 63:1.
Seek by preparing the heart
Yes, the heart of a man needs to be prepared before he sets out to seek God. You know why? Here’s the answer — Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 4:23. Prophet Jeremiah quotes about the heart saying, The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9!! Our heart can become a hard heart if we aren’t careful in preserving it. For if ye turn again unto the Lord, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for the Lord your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him. 2 Chronicles 30:9
Seek till He rains righteousness
Salvation is the righteousness of God. He does not desire even a single soul to perish. Once, we were drowning in the miry clay of sin, with none coming in to rescue us out of that. But God, in His lovingkindness, sent Jesus His son to pull us out of that mire of sin and made us to stand on the Rock. Psalms 40:2. Therefore, Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. Hosea 10:12. Until God rains His righteousness over us, let’s wait and continue to seek Him. May the Lord help us!
Be blessed! 💕
