Seek God
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 • Posted October 10, 2013

“I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.” Isaiah 43:11-12 KJV

Leviticus 19:31 - “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.”

Deuteronomy 4:29 - “But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.”

Deuteronomy 12:5 - “But unto the place which the Lord your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come.”

1 Chronicles 22:19 - “Now set your heart and your soul to seek the Lord your God; arise therefore, and build ye the sanctuary of the Lord God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name of the Lord.”

1 Chronicles 28:8 - “Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation of the Lord, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for all the commandments of the Lord your God: that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance for your children after you for ever.”

1 Chronicles 28:9 - “And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.”

2 Chronicles 11:16 - “And after them out of all the tribes of Israel such as set their hearts to seek the Lord God of Israel came to Jerusalem, to sacrifice unto the Lord God of their fathers.”

2 Chronicles 14:4 - “And commanded Judah to seek the Lord God of their fathers, and to do the law and the commandment.”

2 Chronicles 15:12 - “And they entered into a covenant to seek the Lord God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul;”

2 Chronicles 31:21 - “And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.”

I’ve copied just a handful of the Scriptures that came up, when I did a word search for “seek God.”

This last one says it all so well. Seek God with all your heart, keep His commands the best way that you can, and prosper in all you do. God knows our hearts, as it is written in 1 Chronicles 28:9 above; “for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.”

If you want to be worn out, weak, ill, angry, confused, fearful and defeated, continue to try to survive this world by yourself, relying on friends and family who don’t know it all.

If you want the peace of God in your heart, prosperity, serenity, composure, joy, wisdom, and success in your day and contentment with what you have, knowing this world and what you have is temporary, and there is a better mansion prepared for you, then seek God each morning as you drink your morning tea or coke, preparing for your day.

Proverbs 16:3 – “3 Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.”

Proverbs 16:9 – “A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.”

Seek God and His Son, Jesus Christ; peace be with you.
