If You Seek God, He Will Show Up

Have you ever looked for something and thought you knew where it was but still couldn’t find it? It can be frustrating. When you search for God, you won’t be disappointed in this way.

Right now you might be saying, “How can I find God if He is invisible?” God is a spirit who one day, we will see as He is. For right now, God uses believers to speak to each other and to non-believers. They deliver the message that God wants you to hear. It is thought the obedience of Christ’s followers that God speaks to us.

But, God is not limited to one method of communication. He is the Master of the Universe. He spoke to Moses through a burning bush. Nothing is beyond Him. He spoke to Joseph the carpenter through dreams.

God is not a “respecter of persons.” This means that He will do the same thing for you that He does for others. All of His promises are universal and for everyone. He may not bless you  both in the same way, but He will bless you.

Where is God then? He is as close as your heart. To find Him, read His word and pray to Him. You can get down on your knees or call out to Him while you are sitting at the kitchen table. God wants to hear from you as much as you want to hear from Him. Talk to Him like He was sitting right next to you.

God is not a magic genie. He will answer our prayers but he will not jump out of a lamp in your living room and present you with what you want. God desires more for you than just giving you everything that you desire. He wants to teach you to be like His son, Jesus.

God will show up when you search for Him, but will you know it? Think of it like having a radio. Even with the radio in your possession, it is of no use to you unless you can hear it. You will be no closer to knowing God if you can’t hear His voice.

The book of James, chapter 4, verse 2 says that “we have not because we ask not” (paraphrase). Give God a try. You have nothing to lose and everything in heaven to gain. Ask Him to come into your life and heal your hurts. Ask Him to help you find work to support your family. Ask Him to take away your sinful nature and make you like Christ.

The only requirement that God makes is that you seek Him with your entire heart. When God has your heart, He can use your heart to distinguish His voice. You will hear His answers to your prayers through the preacher on Sunday morning, the apology from someone who has hurt you, the job offer that seemed to come out of nowhere or the friend who offers their support when you are ill. God uses people but only your heart will let you know that it is God blessing you through them.

Exercise your faith. Call on God right now and believe that you will see Him work in your life.

Additional Scriptures:

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.

For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”

-Matthew 7:7-8

…………

Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.

-Proverbs 3:5-6

………….

Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness
while I am here in the land of the living.

-Psalm 27:13

    Thank you! God is teaching me through you today. I hear His voice. I am in what I “feel” like is an impossible situation for me to find contentment in. God moved me, I know He did, yet I cannot see the clarity in it. His purpose is hidden from me and I don’t understand this way He has chosen for me; I can’t see the timing as being a good thing nor the situation as being reconcilable. I am discontent with it because my “feelings” tell me I can’t handle it. LOL! I have even asked God if He was sure this was not more than what I can handle!! I guess that is not really funny when you think about it, it was really arrogant of me. God’s Holy Spirit has shown me that discontentment in this situation for me is the sin of unbelief. I confessed it to God numerous times, and I have begged Him to take away the discontentment. I have woken up with it every day as my situation has not changed, this discontentment just seems to cover my soul. I realized today the reason the discontentment is saturating my soul is because I am asking God for something He is not wanting to change right now and that disappoints my wants, so discontentment is my will pouting through my soul. The truth I read this morning is a light turned on for me. Jesus wants to teach me to be more like Him, therefore I am in this situation that is “stretching my tent pegs” from the contentment of worldly satisfaction to the agreement-alignment of an eternal purpose. Ouch! Yes, I realize my situation hurts, but it is painful for a Kingdom purpose, so it has value, it matters in the long run that I fight a good fight of faith and not allow discontentment to be a part of my pace. After reading the above, I can also see clearly that My Teacher, Jesus is with me in this situation, He has not abandoned me. If I run with the Truth, I can endure until the end. So I thank you this day, because I have exchanged a lie for the truth and discontentment for willessless. I can run this race on this rugged path God has put me on, because it is He that is training me to be a Champion In Christ Jesus and on this seemingly impossible track, He is with me, keeping pace with Me in Spirit and Truth. God Bless You And Thank You Again For The Godly Exhortation Today! I willessly sought God, He showed up! Kimberlymac
