In the kingdom of My Son, seeking IS finding, if you do it with a true heart. I have never turned anyone away, if he sought Me with a true heart, just wanting to know Me, and obey Me. I have said this so many times, in so many ways, that you really should "get it" pretty easily, but some of you think in the backs of your minds, "He'll never listen to me, I'm too ____________ (sinful, insignificant, rebellious)--you fill in the blanks with your own reasons. Your reasoning is bogus. This is an unconditional promise, made so many times that I honestly don't see how you can miss it:
"you shall search for Me, and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart."
"Seek, and you shall find....he who seeks, finds."
"The LORD is good to the soul who seeks Him."
"From there you shall find the LORD your God, if you seek Him with all your heart and all your soul."
"If you seek Him, you will find Him."
"The hand of our God is upon all those who seek Him, for good (and not evil)."
"Your heart shall live, you who seek God."
"I did not say... seek me in vain."
"Thus says the LORD...I will seek My sheep, and I will search them out..." [He's seeking you, too].
"The day is coming and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking people like this to worship Him."
So you see, "Seek Me" is not a pointless command. I have promised that if you seek, you will find, and you will! Do this from an honest and good heart, and I will reward you in ways that you cannot even imagine.
Ever wonder what God might have to say to YOU today? Here are things to ponder, and things to receive into your heart. If you have a question, put it in the comments. I respond as much as I can.
A note for all my readers: I've been experimenting with YouTube videos for Bible teaching, and now I'm working my way through the New Testament. I encourage you to subscribe to my YouTube channel for better coverage. I'm still writing, of course, and my written posts appear here.
