NOW set your heart and your soul to seek the Lord your God. I Chronicles 22:19. This is just the first part of the verse and I have emphasized the word now by typing it in capitals because I believe that this is a word for all of us. If you are a Christian, now more than ever is a time that we should be seeking the Lord with everything within us. God has things that He wants to do IN us and THROUGH us. He wants to speak to us and give us direction but we need to be in a place where we are listening and can hear what He is saying. If we are distracted and not giving Him preeminence (first place) in our lives, we might miss what He is trying to say to us. If you are not a Christian, the Bible promises that if you seek Him, you WILL find Him! When you find Him, you will find what He has provided for you (love, forgiveness, mercy, grace, peace, joy, and every other great thing!). This short part of a verse could provide so many sermons but I pray that this short word will minister to you today and create a desire in you to set your heart and soul to seek the Lord.
Matthew 6:33 seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you.
