Seeking GOD is something that we cannot do without. It ought to be part of our life, it ought to be a HOLY CULTURE that we live by as long as there is breathe in our nostrils. Because if we want to get to know GOD more, if we want to go far with GOD, if we want an intimate relationship with GOD; then seeking GOD is a necessity and not a thing of choice.
How we seek GOD will determine how far and how high we go spiritually. It is a life time thing that helps us boost our spiritual growth .
Seeking GOD is not a spiritual exercise that we should be begged, dragged or forced into doing, it’s a thing we ought to do willingly and with the whole of our heart. Then it will be much more acceptable and perfect before the LORD and draws HIS attention towards us.
Seeking GOD is very important. This message will be a reminder to some of us that already know about seeking GOD and also an eye opener to those of us that need to know that when we have given our life to CHRIST it just doesn’t end there. There is a place of seeking GOD that will make us to grow in fellowship, in relationship and get to the realm of intimacy with GOD.
We can seek GOD in several ways, especially in the place of prayer, studying etc. Seeking GOD is necessary for us not only when there is troubles or pressures but as a means of expressing our gratitude towards GOD. And also to be able to wait on HIM to know if HE has any instructions for us.
Seeking GOD should be a culture whereby the strength of our love for HIM will also be improved and increased.The more you seek GOD the stronger your bond with HIM get.
Jer.29.12 – Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
Jer.29.13 – And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
GOD has made us to know from the above scriptures that when we seek HIM, we will definitely find HIM. HE is not a wicked father and won’t hide HIS FACE from us as long as the seeking is done with the whole of our heart, that’s the only criteria for HIM to be found.
