Seeking God

We know that God is not lost. Neither is He playing a game of Hide-n-Seek with us, cleverly ducking out of view as soon as we come around the corner. So when we talk about “seeking the Lord”, we are certainly not talking about it in our traditional sense. Both the Hebrew and the Greek words translated “seek” have the meaning of seeking after someone with purpose for something that is deeply desired. We’re not just seeking for God so we can say, “Tag! You’re it!” We’re not seeking Him to prove that He exists. Rather, we purpose in our heart to seek His face, so that we might be conformed to His image. It is true that we become what we behold… if we seek things of the world, we will become like the world. If we seek God, we will become more like Him. Meditate on these scriptures and allow them to compel you to SEEK GOD!

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. – Deu 4:29

The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that SEEK the LORD shall not want any good [thing]. – Psa 34:10

Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that SEEK the LORD. – Psa 105:3

SEEK the LORD, and his strength: SEEK his face evermore. – Psa 105:4

SEEK ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: – Isa 55:6

And ye shall SEEK me, and find [me], when ye shall search for me with all your heart. – Jer 29:13

And I set my face unto the Lord God, to SEEK by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: – Dan 9:3

But SEEK ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Mat 6:33

Ask, and it shall be given you; SEEK, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: – Mat 7:7

That they should SEEK the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: – Acts 17:27
