"What Are You Seeking?"

"Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near."  Isaiah 55:6

We seek for a lot of things-- wealth, riches, popularity, provision, dreams, desires, love, freedom, etc. -- but is the Lord one of the things we seek?  Do we seek after only that which can satisfy our flesh?  Or that which can give us inner peace and contentment?  Do we seek after that which is material or that which is spiritual?  Do we seek after that which is temporary-- it is here today and gone tomorrow, like the grass that withers?  Or do we seek after that which is eternal-- it has no end, moths can't destroy it and thieves can't steal it?

What is the focus of what you are seeking today?  You have a wonderful invitation to seek the Lord who is the source of all that you need.  Only He can provide it all.  He is the giver of life, of peace, of provision.  He gives abundantly.  He gives liberally and generously.  He gives strength, rest to the weary, hope to the hopeless.  He gives wisdom and grace. He gives mercy.  There is no good thing that He withholds from those who walk uprightly before Him.   

So seek the Lord today.  Seek Him first.  Don't stop seeking Him.  You have been invited to seek Him and you have a promise that when you do, you will find Him.  And when you find Him... you find all you need.

Have a great day.  What are you seeking?
