“Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice! Seek the LORD and His strength; seek His presence continually!”
Many of us grew up playing hide-and-seek with siblings and friends. Or if some of you were full of energy, you may have played and hide-and-seek tag! The goal of this game was to find every person who was hiding by seeking them out.
God has placed in all our hearts a seeking heart. There is something or someone that we are looking for in life. The question though is this: what or whom are you seeking, and where are you going to find it?
Psalm 105:3-4 shares Whom to seek and what to seek from Him. This verse reminds us of the joy, value and strength that comes from seeking the Lord God continually. Moreover, as a Christian, Jesus calls us to, “…seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33) May we make it our priority every day to seek the Lord first and His mission.
If you feel that Jesus is far from you, be encouraged by these words, “…that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward Him and find him. Yet He is actually not far from each one of us…” (Acts 17:27)
By God’s grace, may we take that step to seek Him, His strength, and His presence today and this week, wherever we are and may go.
