“Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near.”
Every born again Christian is a seeker of God, because God graciously sought out unbelievers, and by the Holy Spirit God drew them to Himself. In seeking and drawing unbelievers God places a desire within their hearts to seek Him (Eph 2:1-10, Act 17:27). The Christian life begins with God, ends with God and in between cannot exist without God. Therefore it is vital for the believer to seek God.
A seeker of God is consumed by a desire in his life to have more of God, he is never spiritually satisfied always hungering and thirsting for more of God, he is overwhelmed by a zeal for God. People should look at the Christian and see that he is seeking something more in this life than the temporary pleasures the world offers. Seeking power, popularity and plenty of money in this life is secondary for the seeker of God. What comes first for the seeker of God is always God.
What do we seek when seeking God? We seek the precepts of God, they are His moral and spiritual commandments, His ways for living the Christian life while on this earth; the righteousness of God that we may be holy as He is holy and be transformed to the likeness of His Son Jesus Christ; the strength and help of God to live according to His commandments and ways; the will, counsel and direction of God for our future in Christ; and the blessing, prosperity and success of God. Above all else when seeking God we must first, Jesus tells us “seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness”.
The Kingdom of God is His rule and reign. It is to God’s rule that Christians must submit their lives to before all else. Christians must make God their King that His righteousness may be experience and revealed in them.
The believer should seek God is with his whole heart, with his mind prepared and determined to find God and with his body offered as a living sacrifice.
