Seek God and You Will Find Him!

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” – St. Matt. 7:7-8 (NIV)

All of us want to be accepted by our peers. All of us want to experience a sense of belonging … a feeling that we are not alone and that someone in this world loves and cares about us. And so we spend most of our lives trying to live up to others expectations … seeking the approval of others.

Sadly, many times the acceptance and approval we seek are rejected because of the addictions and baggage that we carry on our journey through a world that tells us we are only accepted if we meet certain standards. Or we are only good enough if we are in a certain tax bracket.

In this material world we are only accepted when we look the part and for what we own and who we hang with, but God looks at us differently; “for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” - 1 Samuel 16:7 (KJV)

Very often we can look completely put together, fully in control, or totally committed to a cause in our effort to live up to what the world says we should look like. However, every time we seek to live up to the world’s expectations we ultimately fail because the world cannot satisfy our deepest needs.

Only God can satisfy our need for acceptance, approval and unconditional love. All we have to do is ask, seek and knock.

Seek God today! He is waiting to open the door for you. Every other door will be a miserable failure of your hopes and expectations but when you seek God you will find Him and your whole life will change … for the better!!
