Finding God

Deuteronomy 4: 29

But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.

Yesterday, we saw that God gave us power to create wealth. One of the intended results of this power is that God may confirm His promises to us. His promises are designed to create wholeness in every area of life. God has and is giving us power to create success in all facets of life.

There are some key things which will facilitate your reception of all that God has for you. Yesterday we were told to remember the Lord our God and that it is He who pours blessing into our lives. Today we are instructed to seek the Lord, our God. We also receive the promise that we will find Him if we seek Him with all our heart and soul. I can attest to this. I chased Him and was found by Him. I was already a Christian and had been for many years but I wanted more of God. In fact, I wanted all of Him and was frustrated that I didn’t seem able to hear or feel Him the way some people did. So, I determined in my heart that I would have all there was to have and I sought God. He was good to His word and my life and our relationship were dramatically altered from that time on. Everything in our relationship change because I sought Him with my whole heart.

Most of us lead busy lives these days. There are not possibly enough hours in a day to do everything I must do much less all the things I want to do. So, I had to make some choices. Honestly, we all have to make choices daily. I saw in the lives of other people that which was missing in my own. I remember reading books about people whose lives demonstrated the anointing of the Lord on them. I wanted that for myself. I still want it so, one of the primary ways to position myself to receive everything I want from the Lord is to seek Him. Therefore, I have to decide to set aside time that is just for seeking His heart and His thoughts. You know it is not easy to find the time for such exploits but what am I going to do with my time which is more important? What better can I do to move forward in my life?

Ultimately, we must all make these daily choices which will, in the end, determine what kind of year we have this year. I adjure you to make the single most effective choice you can. Seek God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your soul. Seek Him with all your strength. Do not let Him rest. Be relentless! I make you this promise. If you seek Him, if you really and truly determine to pursue Him, not only will you find Him but you will have the best year of your life. I join you too. I have committed to seeking Him more this year than last year. So, I know I am going to have a good year, well, as long as I actually do what I have resolved to do.

Let’s go to great heights this year. Let’s grab handfuls of clouds. Seek the Lord, seek His face continually.
