Diligently Seeking God

Diligently Seeking God

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

What does it really mean to seek the Lord? David indicated that people who truly seek Him are serious about their relationship with Him. They worship and pursue Him. They “require Him as their greatest need.”

They understand that God created all things. Everything belongs to Him. Everything we have comes from Him. We owe everything to Him. As David wrote, “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world, and those who dwell in it” (v. 1).

They understand that He created the principles that govern everything. To really understand the world, we need this foundation. This must shape the way we approach life, our values, interests, goals, and behavior.

David also understood that God desires to fellowship with His creatures. But intimate fellowship is reserved for those who really approach Him with the right spirit. People with “clean hands and a pure heart” (v. 4). Those who live in this way will receive special rewards: “a blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation” (v. 5). These are characteristics of people “who diligently seek Him” (v. 6).

How serious are you about your relationship with God? Are you seeking to live in ways that please Him? Is knowing Him your greatest need?

Don’t just approach God as a religious duty or through times of casual prayer. Make this a serious commitment – the foundation of your life, shaping your actions and attitudes.
