How do you look for God?02/12/2014 - Author: Jennifer - No Comments
“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 (NLT)
I have missed something very important.
Sincerely seek Him. I am not saying that I missed it because I am not rewarded.
I don’t believe I have sought Him sincerely in every area of my life. I rely on Him to get me through the day. To guide me. To get me out of pickles. There are a lot of times that I feel alone—where I don’t feel like He is helping me out.
I know that there have been times where I have prayed, knowing I am going to do what I am going to do and deal with what comes later. This type of praying really isn’t genuine. This type of praying isn’t seeking Him with sincerity. It is lying to ask for help and then ignore it. Let’s face it–God isn’t going to validate sin.
They say to take a step of faith. Well, I did that and it failed. I did what I truly believed was what God was leading me to do, and I was wrong. I am still living with that. So guess what? I can’t. I can’t do it. I need Him to keep opening the doors if He wants me to do something. My faith is a little weak.
I do believe this: There is a God. He meets me where I am. I need to seek Him more sincerely. It is not enough to believe that He is there. (Satan knows that and I want to be better than that). I need to seek by studying the Bible better and praying with confidence that He will answer. Then–trust and obey. Easy? For me, not always.
I know that I don’t have to have all of the answers. I am not expecting perfection, but I would love clarity. Maybe it starts by seeking Him sincerely. What do you think? How do you sincerely seek God?
Be blessed 🙂
