What Can I Do To Seek God Today?
Jesus sought God. He is mentioned throughout the New Testament for his decisions of going to a quiet place and praying to God. In fact, Luke 6:12 says, “One day soon afterward Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and he prayed to God all night.” It is important to understand, however, what Jesus did after this long time of seeking God in prayer. He chose the twelve disciples that would be with him throughout his journey. Even Jesus, the perfect and powerful Son of God, needed time to pray. After all, choosing twelve disciples isn’t easy.
Maybe you aren’t choosing disciples, but you do have some type of decision waiting for you. God’s word is clear with this truth: “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need” (Matthew 6:33). Jesus not only said this verse; he lived it. Since Jesus is our ultimate example, shouldn’t we do the same?
I challenge you to ask yourself the question I recently have: What Can I Do To Seek God Today? It may be praying, reading the Bible, or taking the opportunities that God gives you to speak life into another. If you aren’t willing to seek God, then your decisions aren’t likely to end well. When we don’t seek God, we fall into temptation, act in regretful ways, and forget that we have a purpose on this earth that is greater than ourselves. You might not know the what, but you know who holds your future. Let me leave you with these two verses of hope as you strive to daily seek God:
Azariah the prophet said under God’s spirit, “…Whenever you seek him [God], you will find him…” (2 Chronicles 15:2).
Hundreds of years later, Jesus reassures God’s promise, “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. KEEP ON SEEKING, AND YOU WILL FIND. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7 emphasis mine).
