Seek your God every day
Seek your God every day – God is looking towards your face that you will speak to Him because He is your father. Holi Scriptures prophesied – His eyes are wide open and His ears attentive to the prayers we offer to Him (Bible, 2 Chronicles 6:40; 7:15). This is the reason it is important that every day you seek Him for your needs and thank Him for all the good things / deeds He has done in your lives. Seeing the gratitude of your hearts, God will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go and will counsel you with His loving eye on you (Bible, Psalm 32:8). Then, the blessings and honour will come searching your way and take you to greater heights. Therefore, in spite of your busy schedule, don’t neglect prayer and reading His word because, the Lord is waiting to hear from you and speak to you.
God wants to share His Life with you, and in return He wants you to share your life with Him. He is interested to move into your world, and involve Himself totally in it – in every relationship, every business transaction, every meal, every bill, every family problem, every joy.
God will be as involved with you as you let Him be involved. That is the reason why He encourages you to seek Him. He doesn’t expect you to be a monk and seek Him in seclusion, somewhere apart. He provided a simple, realistic way to do it.
Bible, Philippians 4:6 has prophesied – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Bible, 1 Peter 5:7 has prophesied – Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.
God is calling you having hope, come to Him in every detail of your everyday life. Your face is putting your picture of heart that you are in great trouble and you have no solution in your hand. Stand face to face in your daily prayer and ask God to remove it. You might be surprised how marvelously He provides things to get involved in that the whole family will enjoy.
Sometimes God uses circumstances to remind you to pray about everything. Some problem emerges that you have no control over. Instead of worrying, or trying to get control by finding your solution, think that God is calling you to submit the problem to Him, and watch His solution. It might be something totally out of your ability to control, but He does it for you.
Bible, James 4:2 has prophesied … ye have not, because ye ask not.
So often, rather than ask God, we like to resort to the other things James mentioned in the verse.
We try to express our strong desire, even going to great lengths (like getting others out of the way), we get competitive and aggressive, to get what we want. But we don’t ask God for it! If we think of God at all, we grumble to Him about it, blame Him for it, we ask “Why is God doing this to us ?” Or “Why is God letting this happen?”
How much better, if you desire and don’t have, instead of resorting to aggressive ways of getting what you want, why not straightaway ask God to provide?
If the Israelites in the desert had gone to God with requests instead of grumbling, their journey would have been full of thanksgiving and praise.
It takes some work to remember to pray about everything, because sometimes it doesn’t seem straightaway that you need to pray.
God does want you to be successful in business ventures, but you’d be better off consulting with your Partner before you make any “sure-fire” investments.
Why seek God? We need to be clear on why pray about everything.
The idea behind it is to open your life to God so that He will be free to do whatever He wants in your life and circumstances.
We pray about everything so that it will go God’s way, so we are living in the center of His will, and so that His will might be accomplished on earth as it is in heaven. And that is 100%.
Seek God in Your Daily Decisions. God didn’t intend that praying about everything would be a burden to you, but rather a help.
Many of you really want to do what God wants, if you can only be sure of what that is. You care about circumstances; God cares about your hearts.
Most of Scripture deals with what you are on the inside, not the effect that has on your outside style of life. God is not impressed by those who do the right things on the outside, but aren’t with Him in their hearts. In fact, the Lord rebukes His people when He says in Isaiah:
Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Jesus was not impressed by the Pharisees. He was more impressed by fishermen, tax collectors, and even former prostitutes who honestly trusted him than with the Pharisees who had a religious job but didn’t have a right heart.
He cares more whether you are living by faith than whether you are a missionary or a carpenter. More about you having a loving attitude towards your fellow workers than whether they are engineers or church staff. More about His order in the home than whether it’s an expensive house or a cheap rented apartment. More about your heart being free from pride and covetousness than whether your car is a silver Mercedes or a cheap second-hand car.
That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t ask God about these areas of life. Just be sure that you know what God’s main concern is, and make that your concern. Before you ask God about His will relating to your vocation or vacation, your car or your investments, ask yourself this: Has the Lord already shown you some things that He wants you to be doing that you aren’t? Let God be concerned about giving you the right directions.
Let your concern be whether or not you are obeying the will of God that you already know.
You need to be more concerned about whether you’re living in obedience to the light that you already have than in whether God will give you new light on a decision you have to make.
The reason you can relax about finding God’s will in your life decisions is that God is more concerned about showing you His will than you are in finding it!
All you have to do is to wait for Him to show you, and then do what He tells you to do.
