Seek to Know God

Posted on

I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.

Proverbs 8:17

The more we are motivated to know God, the more we will seek him, and the more he will reveal himself to us. Understanding our Lord is an ongoing spiritual growth process that comes through reading and meditating on his Word, prayer, fellowship with our Christian brothers and sisters, and walking in obedience to his will.

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:11). If our hearts are truly devoted to seeking the Lord, then God will reveal himself to us. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, (Colossians 3:23). The more we live to serve Christ, the more God will reveal himself.

The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God (Psalm 14:2). The Lord is pleased when we are seeking to understand him more. We seek the Lord by reading and meditating on the Word, praying and communing with him through our days, worshipping the Lord in fellowship, and being a light for Christ in this world. As his love fills our hearts, we become closer to the Lord because God is love. The more of Gods love that fills our hearts, the more like-minded we are with the Father and the Son.

Today seek to be closer to the Lord; pray and commune with the Lord throughout the day. Praise him, give him thanks, and seek his guidance. Let his love in your heart flow to others, through kindness and encouragement. The more we are Christ-like the closer to Christ we will be.

Prayer: Lord, draw me closer to you as I seek to be Christ-like today. Let the Spirit fill my heart with your love so that I can reflect it to others. In Jesus name, Amen.
