Seeking is a Cornerstone of the Christian Life. When the children of Israel needed God’s help. He sent them Manna. And even though God provided the Manna for them. They still had to go out daily and gather it. Everything we receive from the Father comes in this way. He wants us to want Him. He earnestly desires relationship with us. But will not force the issue.
Seeking is our way of telling God that we want Him. Seeking is our way of appropriating the provisions of His grace and guidance.
Every great treasure was found because someone was seeking. The greatest spiritual Revelations come to us, when we are deeply looking. Seeking is a law of the Kingdom. It is akin to planting. No seed can burst forth into New Life, unless it is first placed carefully in the ground covered and watered, and allowed to grow by keeping the soil tilled and free from Weeds.
Every Hunter knows that he must carefully seek to know more about his game their behavior and feeding habits to be successful. Every fisherman knows that he must seek to know where the fish are and what they want to bring in a catch. Every businessman knows that he must seek to hone the edge of his tools, understand the nature of his profession and intensely sharpen personal skills to win at the task.
God has made it an intrinsic part of nature in everything we do, to see that seeking is critical to life. In the spiritual world it is no different. The words “Seek and you shall find” are among the most powerful words in the whole scripture.
Want a closer more meaningful relationship with God. Seek Him through reading your Bible. Seek Him through Reading devotional materials. Seek Him Through other believers who are intensely devoted. Seek Him in Earnest early morning prayer. And seek Him in nightly vigils of adoration, worship, supplication, intercession and heartfelt communion and Thanksgiving.
Seek and keep on seeking. Seek and you shall find! (Luke 11:9)
