Seeking God

God said to Solomon in 2nd Chronicles that if God’s people that were called by God’s name would humble themselves, pray, and seek His face. God graciously offers to pardon us and give us peace and happiness if we seek Him. However, there is a day coming when God will not be found. At death and judgment, the door will be shut to us if we have not accepted God in this life. To seek God, there must not only be a change from the way we do things, but also a change of our minds. We must correct our judgments about people and things. It is not enough for us to stop practicing evil; rather, we must also struggle against evil thoughts. To repent is to return to God. If we do so, God will gladly pardon our sins. We forgive, but we cannot forget; but when God forgives sin, he remembers it no more.

The sacred truths of the Scriptures produce a spiritual change in the heart and mind of men. The Scriptures shall not return to God without producing the desired effects. When we read the Scriptures, we shall find what great things God has done and will do for us. The Scriptures makes great changes in us. It delivers us from the wrath of God. The Scriptures brings peace to the heart and mind of the repented child of God. The Scriptures changes us from being wicked, controversial, selfish, and carnal. It makes us long-suffering, humble, compassionate, and peaceful. There are many ways to get various information about God, but the Scriptures still remains the best source of information for the child of God. Only the Scriptures can reveal to us the will of God for our lives.

Looking For the Will of God

As children of God, we should desire to know what the will of God is, and make an effort to do it since a change has taken place in our lives and behaviors. We are to conduct ourselves justly and honestly in everything, we do. The Spirit of God has placed the love of God in our hearts and he will help us to control our actions. Our actions are good when the Spirit of God controls them and the glory of God is the result of them. The main concern of a child of God must be to please God. The Scriptures clearly state in Hebrews 11:6 that it is impossible to please God without faith. God is a rewarder of those that seek Him.

We are to make every effort to control our desires. We are told to strive for the prize of the higher calling of God. Nevertheless, we cannot expect the prize unless we obey the laws. We are to do good to everyone, so that God will be praised. We are told to conduct ourselves in the right manner so that the good that we do may not be spoken evil of. We must do the will of God, before we receive the promises of God. If we want to receive help from God, we must seek God. God is a great rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.
