Diligently Seeking God…

20 Sep


“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. Deuteronomy 28:1.

In a time when it is more socially acceptable to be the commander of your own destiny, we forget the God of the Bible. Today’s society is consistently placing the power and ability all in your hands to create when in actuality everything moves by way of the Holy Spirit of God. This is why we need to diligently strive to know the Lord’s will. God’s will is more than just a conscience feeling that we get but divine instruction. The way to receive that instruction is to be constantly in contact with Him. This works the same way as a light bulb. A bulb cannot produce light on its own but must be connected to a lamp for power. The most powerful way to remain in contact with God is through prayer.

Prayer is our own personal time to talk with the Father. This moment we use to ask for guidance, strength and the ability to overcome the enemy. It is through prayer that we gain confidence in our faith and find peace in our trials. Matthew 7:7-11 reads, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

Another example of staying connected to the divine power of God is through reading His word, the Holy Bible. 2 Timothy 3:16 states, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” It is through reading the Bible we know how to pray the will of our Father. A true fact is that we can always tell what the Lord is going to do, based on what He has already done. So simply by reading we know exactly what to ask for in prayer. I urge everyone to take a few minutes a day to read a couple of chapters of the Bible, or if reading cannot be fitted into your daily schedule listen to an audio Bible. It is important to diligently seek the will of God to not only bless ourselves but others, Shalom…
