The Importance of Seeking the Lord

Seeking God is so important as stated in Deuteronomy 4:29, “But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find Him, if you search after Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Matthew 11:29-30, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” We must seek to learn of Him.

Matthew 6:33 states seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness and things will be added to us. I admit this was not always easy, but necessary. Proverb 8:17-18 “I love them that love Me; and those that seek Me early shall find Me. With Me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity.” Seeking Him should be about loving, honoring and obeying Him, not what He can give us on earth–that is His business!

Spiritual Mother Copeland sent below image, and the Scripture falls in line with the message. When seeking God, approach His throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy and grace to sustain us in steadfastness on our Christian journey.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Perhaps most, if not all, have at least once diligently sought endeavors deem important to us but did not put forth the same, or more, effort in seeking to learn about the Lord? (Luke 12:31)

Do we still honestly examine ourselves to ensure our efforts have not weaken and we are seeking the Lord above all things and people. It is You that I seek first, Lord. You have said to seek Your face. (Psalm 27:8)

If we want to live eternally in Heaven, we must run this race despite whatever circumstances we face in life. In Amos 5:4, the Lord said to the house of Israel “Seek me and live.” We must not seek Him regrettably but in gladness and in love for our Great Lord. (Psalm 40:16).

“And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” (John 17:3)
