God loves to add and multiply;the devil loves to divide and subtract. Jesus came to give life more abundantly,the devil came to steal,kill,and destroy life. The question is why does people spend all their lives seeking things,that will never be beneficial to them ,while others seek things that are detrimental to health,strength,and well being.Why aren’t people interested in seeking God. Didn’t they get the memo,in Hebrews 11:6,which says,”He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him”. However,Luke 12:29-32 says,” And seek not what ye shall eat,or what ye shall drink,neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after,and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God,and all these things shall be added unto you . Fear not,little flock,for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom “.Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight thyself also in the Lord,and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart”. Then 1 Chronicles 16:10-11 says,”Glory ye in His holy name;let the heart of them rejoice who seek the Lord.Seek the Lord and His strength,seek His face continually.”
There are short and long term benefits when we seek the Lord. Psalm9:10 says,”And they who know thy name will put their trust in thee,for thou,Lord,hast not forsaken those who seek thee”. Why aren’t people seeking the Lord ? Isaiah 55:6 says,”Seek ye the Lord while He may be found,call ye upon Him while He is near”. The reason why He suggested that you call or seek Him now because ,if you should die today without accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior,then you are going to hell. For the Lord is good unto those who wait for Him,to the soul that seeketh Him.(Lamentations 3:25). David when the Lord told him,seek ye my face ,his response,my heart said unto thee,thy face,Lord,will I seek(Psalm27:8). That was the main reason why David,and many others in the Bible were successful.
If my people who are called by my Name,will humble themselves and pray ,and seek my face,and turn from their wicked ways,then will I hear from heaven,and will forgive their sin,and will heal their land. [ 2 Chronicles 7:14].Won’t you seek God today,and see the difference He makes in your life. To get started go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and get started.
