“But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. 30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; 31 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them” (Deuteronomy 4:29-31, KJV).
One other deed of the hand is seeking. We have considered several acts that the hand can be used for. Today, we’ll be considering another.
To seek is an act of the wise. Wise men are seekers. Moreover, great men today, who have very well lived their purposes, are those who sought God. Even more, those who are living their purposes are God-chasers.
Knowledge preserves, however, depth of knowledge comes from painful drilling and time taking explorations. It is not for lazy men to find because commitment and consistency are two keys that seekers need which laziness does not in any way depict.
Moses warned the Lord’s children that God would only be found by those who sought God with their hearts and souls. God is faithful to reward His true seekers—those whose eyes are fixed on Him alone.
The act of seeking is not a one-off mission, rather it is a continuous one that involves patience, determination, and consistency. True seekers are disciplined, and committed and may not have time for many pleasures.
True seekers never become ex-champions, every discovery is relevant to them. Hence, they continue to seek, find and seek again, they have their hands ever placed on the plow.
Relevant knowledge is never superficial, hence, continuous work is required for the discovery of rare treasures.
Of all the things that you may seek, God is superior—those who seek God never end up regretting it. That’s because the best ally that any human can have in life is God. He holds and owns the secrets to all things.
Seeking God involves:
Communicating to Him through prayers. Reading, studying, and meditating on His words. Waiting on Him through fasting and prayers. Seeking godly counsels. Reading and listening or watching contents of godly persons. Worship draws His attention.
Seek God above all, friends!
