What does the Bible mean when it talks about “seeking” the Lord?
If God’s address is with broken people why do I need to search for him?
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands. (Psalm 119:10)
You’ve experienced this idea of seeking in all of your growing relationships. Parents and children seek to know and understand each other. Friends spend time and energy in order to know each other better.
Seeking the Lord is the same kind of thing. Seeking God means investing time and effort into building your relationship with him. God is not lost and he is not hiding. He does live with you but like all your relationships growth and intimacy with the Lord is not automatic.
So, seek the Lord and believe he will reward you with a deeper relationship with him. (Hebrews 11:6)
PRAYER SUGGESTION FOR TODAY:
I will seek you, Lord.
