Why we need to seek the LORD
“When you call me and come and pray to me, I will listen to you. “When you search for me, yes, search for me with all your heart, you will find me. I will be present for you, declares the Lord, and I will end your captivity,” Jeremiah 29:12-14.
While in an intense season of seeking the Lord many years ago, I asked Him why He wanted me to seek Him, even though He already knew all of my wants and needs.
He said two things to me that day that changed me forever, and this is what He whispered “I Just love the chase.”
Then He said, “And because, I just want to hear your voice…..”
I cried until the carpet under the pew was soaked that day because I realized what He had died for. I realized that day that He had died just to have sweet fellowship with me…..
Yes me, a little bitty no name nothing, but he wanted my companionship. I realized that He had died a horrible death because He wanted my Heart to seek Him….
Yes He loves the chase because if you Love Him enough to chase Him your heart is revealed….
“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away.
O my dove, in the clefts of the rock,
in the crannies of the cliff,
let me see your face,
let me hear your voice,
for your voice is sweet,
and your face is lovely,” Song of Solomon 2:13-14 (ESV).
Today Lord, we choose to seek you with all of our heart, and when we do, we know we will find you because you want us to…
The King of all glorious things comes in intimacy
Intimacy with God is where the seed is imparted into the womb of creativity and all things are birthed from that one thing…. When you seek His face, the king of all glorious things comes in ….
“Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Selah
Lift up your heads, O gates!
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in,” Psalms 24:6-7 (ESV).
