On Seeking God.

leave a comment »


I have heard some say they searched for God and found nothing.  I have heard people say they have found God, yet I see no evidence in the way they live their lives.  I have heard people say there is no need to search for God; it is His task to seek us.  In short, we have all heard many versions of this statement.  The following is an observation regarding seeking God.

He says “You will seek me and find me when you seek for me with all your heart.  And I will be found by you”.  The promise is true.  I can testify to that.  So why don’t more people find what they’re looking for?  They seek Him with wrong motives.  He will not honor pride.  So the one who looks for Him as though He was an anomaly won’t find Him.  That one is looking for God as if God were the created one.  That person is still holding himself up as God and taunting God by forgetting who made who.

Some say they have found God, yet there is no apparent difference in the life they live.  These people lie by their actions.  It is possible they can identify what God is.  But that’s as far as they intend to go.  God is not mocked.  A man reaps what he sows.  He who sows to the sinful nature, will reap that crop.  He who sows from the Spirit of God will reap his reward according to God’s will.

He who thinks it is the Creator’s task to find and secure lost souls is missing a great mark.  God knows where you are.  He knows who you are.  He knows what you’ve done.  He knows your attitude.   And He makes the demand that you seek Him.

By His Grace.
