If you’ve ever played the game, hide-and-seek, you always hoped that you would find the person(s) that’s hiding from you. So you tried to think smart, going about diligently looking for that person. Hoping, if you look hard enough and think smart enough, you will find that person.
We go through life trying to think smart, seeking what we believe to be good, doing things we believe to be good, so that we may have peace and a good life. Without reading God’s word, we go through life blinded, playing hide-and-seek, hoping to find the finer things in life, by being guided by ourselves, in our own strength. Stumbling and falling, trying to pick ourselves up, making the same mistakes, trying to figure it out on our own.
Well, that’s not God’s plan for us. God wants us to have the finer things in life, and live in abundance. To do that, we have to seek after God. Our trust should be in God, and seeking Him and His goodness, who gives us peace, should be first, not the last resort.
One of God’s promises say, that if you look for him wholeheartedly, you will find him. And if you call on Him, and pray to Him, He will hear you.
Seek after what God has promised you. He can’t lie, so get what He said he wants you to have. Ask Him. He’s waiting for you to ask. Get what is yours, it’s yours!
John 10:10 (KJV) – the thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Matthew 6:33 (KJV) – but seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Jeremiah 29: 12-13 (KJV) – then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
Like 11:9 (KJV) – and I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
