“Seek the Lord while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the Lord,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon” (Is 55:6, 7)
There are many believers who ask me for counsel, how to have a financial breakthrough. This is my basic answer: Seek God first and prosperity shall be added to the seeker! (Mt 6:33). The devil deceives and confuses people. He tells them to seek wealth first giving them false hopes that God shall later follow. This will never happen, for God wants to be first in your life. Others ask: ‘how do I seek God’? In the scripture above you see how to do it.
*Seeking God is a command. It is not just a suggestion. Jesus is the Captain of our Salvation and He commands you to seek Him. Your answer should be ‘Yes, Sir!’ Start seeking God thru the Word of God, fasting and prayer! Seek God until you find Him!
*Seek God ‘while He may be found’. The Holy Spirit moves as He pleases. There are seasons when He does not move and He keeps silent. If you sense a drawing at your heart, it means He is calling you to seek Him. Do not waste that precious opportunity! You never know if or when another comes.
*Call upon the name of the Lord! Shout Jesussssssssssss!!!!!!! Be active spiritually and desperate to find God!
*Forsake your sinful way of life and your selfish thoughts! Separate from any friend who is not interested in God.
*Once you find God you shall receive mercy for He shall ‘abundantly pardon’ all of your sins! There is ‘abundant’ pardon, beyond your imagination pardon for you when you find God!
Let me use a picture to describe this seeking. A man has abandoned his loving wife for another woman. He now lives with his lover. From time to time he remembers his wife with some regret. That is not seeking! For as long as he only thinks about his wife, with love or with regret, that is not seeking his wife. One day, when the lover is gone shopping, he feels guilty and makes a phone call to his wife. He tells her that he misses her and still loves her. The wife has the right to ask: ‘Did you forsake your lover’ He says: ‘No”. That is not seeking! But if one day he tells the lover: ‘I am tired of this relationship! I love my wife! I go back to my wife!’ Then he phones his wife that he is on his way home. Then he shall find mercy and forgiveness from his wife. It is love, reconciliation and the grace of a new beginning! That means true seeking!
If you have read this note to the end, it means that God is calling you! Come like the prodigal son! Your Father has never stopped loving you! Come to Jesus! Come home!
