Seek the Lord

Deuteronomy 4 29

Verse of the Day:  Deuteronomy 4:29

But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.

God isn’t far from you, He’s always with you, you need only to seek Him with all of your heart and soul. He wants to have a relationship with you but even though He could, He’s not going to force you to have a relationship with Him because He wants you to choose to love Him. The most important thing you can ever do isn’t found in the busyness of your life, it is found in the quiet times seeking God. Seek Him with a sincere heart, pray, read the Bible and turn from sin. God loves you and He is merciful, if you give your heart to Him and make Him a priority in your life you’ll see for yourself how good your heavenly Father is.

Hearing from God

Romans 10 17

Verse of the Day:  Romans 10:17

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

We know God can speak to you and grow your faith through His Word when you read the Bible, when you hear a sermon and when you pray. But did you know He can also speak to you through other believers, through music, nature, even social media? We cannot confine or limit the ways in which God can speak to us. Have you ever been going through a rough time and you get into the car and at just the right moment a song comes on the radio that gives you the encouragement you needed? That’s God. Maybe a friend sent you an encouraging text or a Bible verse that you needed to be reminded of, that’s God. God is able to speak to you in many ways if you would only surround yourself with the things of God and put yourself in a position to be receptive to His voice.

Knowing and Trusting God

Psalm 9 10.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:10

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

The only way to know God is to seek Him with all of your heart.  Spend time with Him in prayer, read the Holy Bible and really make an effort to understand who He is. The more you seek God in faith, the more you will come to know Him. You will know His true nature, power, wisdom, faithfulness and goodness. When you experience God’s love, grace and mercy for yourself you will come to completely trust in Him and realize that He is always there for you.

Understanding God’s Word

Psalm 119 130 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:130

The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

If you read the Holy Bible in faith, studying the truth, asking God to give you understanding of what was, what is and what is to come – the Lord, by his grace, will enlighten your mind and soul. He will help you understand the scriptures, His plan for salvation and He will give you spiritual peace and comfort. God’s word gives understanding to all who earnestly seek Him and are willing to learn.

Walking in God’s Word

Psalm 119 105

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:105

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Navigating this world is no easy task.  At times you may feel like you’re lost or walking in the dark but God’s Word is here to guide you and to show you the way you should go.  The Bible is a light shining in the darkness. The more you know and study God’s Word, the more you can apply it to your daily life.  The more you apply it to your life, the clearer the path becomes.  Let God guide you through life with His Word.

Read During Prayer

2 Timothy 3 16

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 3:16

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness

 

Reading the Bible as part of your prayer can lead to enlightenment.  God speaks to us in many ways especially, His written Word. He may open your eyes to something new when a passage you’ve read before suddenly becomes clear and impacts you like never before. Try reading scriptures during prayer and ask God to open your eyes and make clear what He is trying to show you.
