Dear beloved, Thank You for coming around this morning, so sorry that the site is down presently, it will soon come up again. Here is an opportunity to forward the message to your beloved one who will are yearning for the Word that heals. Thank you for being there also. My prayer for you is that as you seek Him today, you will not seek Him in vain. He will find you and will not pass you by in Jesus Name.
Have you come across the word “Seek” and what are your understanding or findings? Here are some of my findings. ‘Seeking’ involve above every other thing personal commitment. It involve self, either mentally or physical or which might be physically commitment or by extension (indirectly) in this case, you get someone involve while you are making contribution alongside. These references will help further understanding. (Deut 4:29; Heb 11:6; Act 10:19; Mk 16:6; Matt 2:13; Matt 7:7; Acts 9:11; Acts 17:27)
The topic before us is placing a demand on us to go before the Lord. Is getting our personal commitment in the place of prayer and service. So many leave their Christian faith to chance which is very risky. Beloved, we must be committed to God to be heard by Him.
Many used God as mechanic to fix things in their life and situation. Imagine having a friend who only remembers you when he wants something from you. No phone call to find out how are doing or otherwise? But each call or visit places a demand on you. I guess you will not like such a friend. So why do we treat God same way?
Even in the place of prayer, some are in the habit of ‘give me this’ or that O Lord! And rarely say ‘Thank You, Father’ for the ones received.
However, God by the way of today’s teaching is encouraging us to always seek Him. It will shock you to know that though God seemeth far because of our slothfulness in prayer, He is the very breath you breathe to stay alive. Irony of life, isn’t it?
What about seeking Him early? So it also behold on us to seek after God early on any issue in our life. Whatever be it an early commitment into God’s hand will help resolve it faster than you can imagine. (Isa 55:6- seek God while he will found; Jn 9:4- while is still day we have to do the works of Him who sent me; the night comes when no work may be done)
Are you ready to seek Him now? Miracles and deliverance are result of seeking after the Lord. Restoration and healings are all fruit of faithful seeking of God.
Is someone ready to pray now? Are you ready to make intercession that will be heard from above? If you are then come along with me as we go through the message and get more enlighten:
The Lord is with you when you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you, but if you abandon Him, He will abandon you.—2 Chronicles 15:2
Our response to God greatly determines His presence in our lives. If we seek God with all of our hearts, then we will find Him (Jer. 29:13–14). The Lord wants to have fellowship with us, but He will not force a relationship upon us. We cannot reject fellowship with God and expect Him to remain near. He does not merely follow us throughout our day in case we need His assistance. If we continue to forsake Him, a time will come when we desperately need Him and He will not be near (Isa. 59:1–2).
It is an affront to sovereign God to treat Him like a servant who should wait upon us. God will relate to us on His terms, not ours. God desires a close walk with us. He will make His presence real and personal if that is our desire. If we repent of our sin and seek God on His terms, we can look forward to intimate fellowship with Him (James 4:8–10). We are to continually seek Him, not content to enter a new day without the assurance that God is walking beside us.
Do you say you want to experience God’s presence while your actions reveal otherwise? If you say you want to know God better but neglect studying His word, are you truly seeking Him? Have you regularly forsaken the place of prayer? If your actions reveal that you are genuinely seeking God, then He promises that you will find Him (Matt. 7:7).
Remember that a neglect to seek after God is severe, so beware. It means abandonment by Him; it means separation from Him, so be careful.
