Are you afraid to ask for help? Are you seeking God? Take this study.
“Seek the LORD while He may be found; call on Him while He is near” (Isaiah 55:6).
Have you ever really wanted something? Wanted it so desperately that you were willing to spend whatever time, energy or resources it took to acquire it? Imagine seeking God in that manner.
Jesus likened the kingdom of heaven to a treasure hidden in a field or a pearl of great value – worth selling everything we own, in order to buy it. Zechariah prophesied that there will be a day when, “[T]he inhabitants of one city will go to another and say, ‘Let us go at once to entreat the LORD and seek the LORD Almighty. I myself am going’” (Zechariah 8:21).
I sense within my heart the need to say, “I myself am going to seek God, won’t you come with me?”
Almighty God, thank you for the promise that I will find You when I seek You with all my heart (Jeremiah 29:13). Give me the courage and the strength to seek after You regardless of who goes before me or if anyone else follows. Amen.
Questions: Is anything holding you back from seeking God now? Why is seeking God of greater value than any other thing?
