May 6: Seek God to Find God

This morning, my thoughts continued with the subject of seeking God. In the natural, man is limited. There are times a person must “Seek God” for Himself. When we truly “seek God” for no other reason but to know Him, we will find Him. How do we find God? Get alone – Set your goals high. Simply say NO to all other voices; forsake television, cancel hobbies, and put away the newspaper, magazines, and cell phones.

Are you hungry? Are you desperate to hear from God? Those who desire to find God will find time. It will take more than the “normal” that of not measuring up to others but go after God with your whole heart. Paul rebukes the Corinth church because of their walk…be not “like mere men” as Paul states in: 1 Corinthians 3:3, For ye are yet carnal: for whereas [there is] among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? (KJV).

God wants so much more for His people. He desires us to be like Christ, not merely “normal” but Christ like! God’s desire is to overfill our lives with the very power of Christ; God’s anointing in and through our lives, being that vessel of honor that God has created us for.

This power (the anointing) is available to all He has chosen and called to “come out” of the “familiar” and “normal daily routine” of doing things. We are not to place our security in the familiar things around us. So many times, we get in the routine of doing life and leave out seeking God for the truth. We stay in lifeless churches simply because of familiar faces. This is not the answer.

We must be rooted in Christ in all that we do, which is to be continually growing spiritually in our lives. Our lives are to be based on and in the truth of Christ.

Again, let me say, we don’t like change. But God does call us out of the everyday routine of working all day coming home to sit in front of the television and then collapse in bed only to see our life become a chain of bondage. If this has been your routine and you have noticed your daily routine has lost its zeal, maybe it’s time to get away in that secret place with God. Just you, His Word, and spend some time in prayer in communication with your Heavenly Father, God.

Just as Moses and others left the “familiar” and pitched their tent “outside the camp” where they would then seek the Lord, so we are to do the same. Jesus also went “outside the camp” that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffering outside the gate.

Outside the camp is simply getting alone, without distractions. You and God. Talking to God and He talking to you. Hebrews 13:12-14, Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come (KJV).

Matthew 6:6, But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly (KJV).

God is looking for a Holy people… there must be a sacrifice of time in our daily routine to get away from the familiar and place our tent in the presence of God. NOW is the time to pray…seek Him. My wish for this day to all is to seek HIM and to find that place in God, in HIS presence, of joy peace and happiness…only God can provide through a life of knowing Jesus as your personal Savior and allowing the Holy Spirit to have full reign in our lives.

As always, may God’s BLESSINGS and FAVOR be with you and your family. May we become that vessel of honor that God can and will use with the flow of His anointing that changes lives for His purpose.
