When You Seek You’ll Find

I’ve read this Bible verse many times, but on this day like many other days, the words jumped right at me and made more sense. It’s moments like this that I’m so grateful to have such an awesome teacher (Holy Spirit).

One thing I have asked of the Lord, and that I will seek; That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. To gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple. -Psalm 27:4

What stood out to me most in this verse is that David used both words ASK AND SEEK. He didn’t just ask to dwell, he sought to dwell; meaning that he pursued what he’d asked for. It got me thinking of how we sometimes ask for more of God without seeking it.

We say we want more, but do nothing to get more. In other words, our words don’t match our actions. It’s like someone saying they love or desire you but do nothing to show that they do. Love that’s not backed up with actions is incomplete. If we say we truly desire God then we must SEEK HIM OUT.

Why Seek?

Why do we seek God?  I’d like to answer this question by asking another question. Why do we eat? We eat to live. We eat because our body needs food to function. Applying this same principle to our spiritual life shows that we seek God to keep our spirit healthy and active.

Oftentimes, people seek God only when they are in need. They seek after God’s hand, not His heart. In the above Psalm, David was after God’s heart, not His hand. I find that we are often very serious in seeking God’s hand but slack in seeking His heart. But I believe that we must seek God’s heart much more intently than we seek His hands because seeking God’s heart opens His hands. God wants our focus to be on this ONE THING which is to dwell daily in His presence.

How to Seek

We seek God by spending time in His presence. Choosing to set our eyes on things above by reading the bible, praying, and fasting. Having a set time to spend with God is great but don’t be limited by that time. This is to not let yourself get caught up in the routine, thereby missing the experience.

We can spend all day staying connected by meditating on God’s word and praying in the Holy Ghost. I also like to read Christian books, listen to Christian music, worshipping and loving on Him as I go about my day. On the days where I’m distracted, I acknowledge how my day was and pray for strength to do better the next day.

In seeking God, the posture of our hearts is what really matters. We must remain in tune and focused on this ONE THING. God is pleased when we seek Him. He knows we aren’t perfect but He’s pleased when our hearts are willing.

And you will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart- Jeremiah 29:13

Beautiful Pursuit

The beautiful thing about pursuing God is that we fall more in love with Him and become more like Him daily in pursuing Him. In this pursuit, we not only find Him but we find ourselves also, for in Him we live, move, and have our being.

I encourage you to spend this week seeking God. Pay attention to the promptings of His Spirit. Don’t just say you want God but show you want Him, and you’ll find Him.
