The Lord seeks
For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
I am really really glad the Lord seeks me out, providing I am in a state of acceptance and submission. I can walk away from Gods grace and I have done so a few times but it’s a wonderful thing to be sealed by the Holy Spirit that draws me back from the darkness. What an incredible system of salvation God has bestowed upon man kind through Christ Jesus.
It is a mutual seeking. He seeks us we seek him.
Scriptures to meditate on today
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well”
“The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God”
“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water”
But Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, “First seek the counsel of the Lord.”
Song for my day
Hillsong (Sinking Deep)
Oh My Lord I continually seek you in total amazement that you love me even though I am in no way shape or form worthy of you reconciliation. But I thank your son Jesus Christ for giving his life that I may live in eternal peace. I am thankful the Lord seeks me first.
