What do you seek?

Matthew 7:7-8 (NET) “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

I was in a campground where many people go to pray. I saw old, young, and middle-aged men and women praying everywhere in that campground. I was getting excited about what I saw when I sensed the mood of the Lord. It was as though the Lord was saying: "I wish they were truly seeking me". Indeed, many of the people were seeking things(breakthroughs, open doors, healing, prosperity) in the name of the Lord, but pleasing the Lord was scarcely the object of their quest.

Many people understand the principle of seeking. They apply themselves to serious spiritual disciplines and stay consistent until what they seek materializes. The question today is "what do you seek?"

Time on earth presents us with the opportunity to seek the kingdom of God and lay hold on eternal life. But we can use that same time to seek the things of this world and lay hold on material things that perish. The fact that you're using prayer and fasting to seek it does not mean that what you seek is accurate.

We don't only have the ability to ask and receive, we have the ability to seek and find. But unlike asking, what we seek has a way of dominating our hearts and minds. That's why the Lord tells us what to seek. We are advised to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. See Colossians 3:1 also.

Go into today remembering that you have the ability to seek and find. God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. Don't waste this precious time you have to seek mundane things. Seek to please God always, and He will ensure that you don't need to seek any other thing.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me always remember to seek Your kingdom and Your righteousness above all else. Thank you, In Jesus’ name. Amen.
