Seek God and Find Him

Azariah the prophet told Asa, king of Judah, “The Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you” (II Chronicles 15:2).

What is it that the majority of people in today’s world seek most? It is God? Is it money? Pleasure? I think you know that whatever the correct answer to the question is, it’s not God. Many do their best to hide from God, or even deny that God exists, but relatively few people in today’s world spend much time seriously seeking God.

Perhaps we could ask ourselves, what it is that we seek most. It is God? There are many scriptures that instruct and encourage us to seek God, and tell us what rewards we can expect to receive in doing so. And what does it mean to “seek God”? How does one go about it? The Bible has the answers, which we explore in this message.

Psalm 119 — A Psalm of Devotion to God

The 119th Psalm contains a range of sentiments, thoughts, emotions, states of mind. It speaks of affliction, of persecution, of trouble, anguish, sorrow and despondency, of pleading for relief and salvation, but also of hope, of rejoicing, of indignation towards evil, of assurance, of faith, of determination to resist evil and obey God, and of thanksgiving.

It seems to touch on almost the entire range of circumstances and emotions that a person of faith might experience over a lifetime. But the emphasis throughout the entire psalm is on a love of God’s word, seeking after it, and being faithful to it.

Discover some important lessons as we review the powerful words of Psalm 119.

Why Did God Choose Israel — Part 2

Because of the faith of their forefathers God chose Israel. But not only for the sake of Israel. Through them the world was to have an example, and be blessed as well. Israel failed to be the example God desired, but God will ultimately bring salvation to the peoples of Israel and all nations as Scripture explains.
