Benefits of Seeking God

There are a lot of things in life we can pursue.  Most of us are pursuing a career, an education, a dream of some sort, but the most important thing we can ever go in search of in life is God!  When we search for God the Bible promises that we will find Him and we will be rewarded!  Seeking God should be a daily pursuit.  It requires persistence and discipline.  You have to get a, ” Never Give Up” attitude in your quest for God. The Bible tells us to seek God first above all other things (Matthew 6:33).

 

Seek: to go in search or quest of, to seek the truth.  Synonyms: Pursue, Follow.

God promises to give us tremendous benefits when we seek Him.  I was reading Psalm 34 today and I had to read verse 10 over and over again.  This is what it says:

“The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.” NIV

“Young lions on the prowl get hungry, but God-seekers are full of God. ” The Message

I don’t know about you, but I want to be full of God!  I decided to find out more benefits of seeking God.  What would we do without Google.  Seriously?  This is what I found:

When we seek God, pursue Him, and follow after Him we will have no lack for any good thing, we will find Him, we will be filled with joy and gladness, God will reward us, and we will be blessed! Check out these scriptures below!

“When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. ” Jeremiah 29:13 The Message

“But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, “The LORD is great!” Psalm 40:16 NIV

“So, you see, it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” Hebrews 11:6 NIV

You’re blessed when you follow his directions, doing your best to find him.” Psalm 119:2 The Message

 

 

 

I hope I have stirred you up today to make a fresh committment to seek God first in your life.  If you are already seeking Him, Keep it up!

God has amazing things in store for you today! Pursue Him and follow after Him with all of your heart!  YOU WILL FIND HIM!
