I loved the game “Hide and Seek” as a kid. I kind of like it as an adult doing the high tech treasure hunt called Geocaching. It’s where a cache is hidden somewhere and the coordinates are loaded into the website so that others can find the location of the cache and find the hidden “treasure” inside. Most of the caches hidden have a log inside for you to sign. The seeking and finding is really the point –not the prize in the cache.
Seeking the Lord is similar. There are hidden “caches of truth” through out scripture that are only found by those who are seeking. I was reminded of this again this morning in the words of King David. Check this out…..1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. 2 The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. 3 All have turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. (Psalm 14:1-3 NIV)
To find the Lord, I don’t have to look far. His Presence and His Influence in my world is all over the place. He is the Designer and Creator and I see His hands in every area of my life. Seeking the Lord is a daily journey for me. I believe in seeking Him, I learn lots about me in the process. When I seek His Heart, I pick up characteristics of Him that I need in my heart. As I seek the Lord daily, I’m reminded that that even though I’ve found Him, I want to stay in pursuit of His Heart.
I want to be a seeker of God the rest of my days here on earth.Pressing On! Dwayne
