1Chronicles 16:10-11 Glory to His holy name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord. Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face forevermore.
This scripture in Chronicles was a part of a Psalm David wrote for the people to use to thank God. He used it to encourage the people to not only be thankful but to seek God and to remember to tell others about all of God's wondrous deeds.
Oddly enough as it may sound we often need someone to remind us of these things. Especially things such as being thankful, seeking God and telling others about His wondrous deeds. Too easily we get so wrapped up in the every day hustle and bustle of life that we forget to do some things that are vital for our spiritual well-being.
We are often to busy seeking other things such as a career, love, personal gain, fame and fortune and praise from others that we forget to seek God. Often it's not that we forget but we think we don't need to or don't have the time. We are more apt to seek out where our cellphone is for hours or days than seek God.
We play what seems to be a game of hide and seek with God. We are the ones who hide from Him and expect Him to be the one who seeks us out. We treat it as a game that only happens once and then there is no further need for seeking.
Wrong! We are the ones who need to be doing the seeking. God hasn't hidden himself from us as we do Him but we still need to be seeking Him on a regular basis. We need to seek Him daily looking for Him wherever we go in all that we do.
Seeking His will, His companionship, guidance, love, discipline, and strength. Things we need to be thankful for as God supplies our every needs. It's all a part of the wondrous things God has done for us that we need to be telling others about.
It's vital to remember we cannot find unless we seek. We can't tell others what we fail to look for and appreciate ourselves. It's time to seek God's face forevermore and His strength and stop playing hide and go seek. Instead it's seek and find.
Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added into you.
Seek and you shall find...Matthew 7:7,8
