Seek God All the Time

    

Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you  will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you. —Matthew 7:7

In 2 Chronicles 20, King Jehoshaphat proclaimed a fast to show his  sincerity to God. Missing a few meals and taking that time to seek God is not a  bad idea. Turning the television off and spending the time you would normally  spend watching it with God is not a bad idea either. Stay home a few evenings  and spend extra time with the Lord instead of going out with your friends and  repeating your problem over and over to them. These things and others show that  we know hearing from God is vital.

I have learned the word seek means to pursue, crave, and go  after with all your might. In other words, we act like a starving man in search  of food to keep us alive. I would also like to add that we need to seek God all  the time not just when we are in trouble. Once God spoke to me that the reason  so many people had problems all the time was because that was the only time  they would seek Him. He showed me that if He removed the problems, He would not  get any time with the people. He said, “Seek Me as if you were desperate  all the time and then you won’t find yourself desperate as often in  reality.” I think this is good advice, and I highly recommend that we all  follow it.
