The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

TODAY'S PASSAGE: ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:13‬ ‭NIV‬‬ | Where is My ...

Have you ever had a time in your life when you were seeking the Lord? What did the Lord reveal to you during this time? How did that affect your actions? The Lord tells us if we are really seeking Him, we will easily find him.

Jeremiah 29:13  If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.[1] I find it reassuring that the Lord is easy to find when we desperately need His guidance along our spiritual journey. 

King Asa Went Seeking the Lord

King Asa of the Southern Kingdom of Judah knew the importance of seeking the Lord. and he wanted to pass this experience along to the people. 2 Chronicles 14:King Asa commanded the people of Judah to seek the Lord, the God of their ancestors, and to obey his law and his commands.[2] The King knew he could not change people’s hearts, but God could. As the people sought the Lord for guidance, He would show them how to obey His commandments. Then good things would take place in their lives.

The Lord Blesses Those Who Seek Him

When we seek the Lord there are many blessings. Take time today and seek the Lord and be amazed how He will speak to you through His word and the work of the Holy Spirit.

Psalm 37:I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. [3] When we seek the Lord, He not only hears us, but He answers our prayers. He can do the same for you.

1 Chronicles 16:11 Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him. [4]  The Lord wants to give us strength when we seek Him and desires that we continually seek Him. As we do this, He is able to give us daily guidance and develop our relationship with Him.

2 Chronicles 7:14 Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.[5] The Lord wants us to humbly seek Him in prayer. As we as ask the Lord to forgive us and turn away from our sins the Lord brings healing to us and our nation. Wow! The Lord is so merciful!
