Topic: SEEKING GOD!
Psalm 34:10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing .
Yesterday we started the discussion on Seeking God and we defined what it means to seek God! We also spoke about the how part i.e how do we seek God?
Today as we continue we want to look at :
THE BENEFITS OF SEEKING GOD!
Are there any benefits that I get when I take my time seeking God? Definitely because the text above says, The young lions lack and suffer hunger BUT THOSE WHO SEEK THE LORD SHALL NOT LACK ANY GOOD THING!
Sk benefit number:
1. You will NOT lack any good thing when you seek God! Psalm 34:10
Thats why David spoke in Psalm 23:1 and said, The LORD is my Shepherd I shall not lack!
David was someone who sought God and he never lacked as long as he ran after the Shepherd!
2. Matthew 6:33 When we seek God and his righteousness All things will be added to us!
As believers we should not run after things, or run after money, cars, miracles or all other things that the non believers are chasing! Our duty is to seek first God’s kingdom in our lives and in this world and All these things will be added (Just added/given to us)!
3. When we seek God, we will find Him!
Matthew 7:7-8 he who seeks finds, so when we seek God we will find Him.
2 Chronicles 28:9 … if you seek Him He will be found by you.
4. Hebrews 11:6 GOD IS A REWARDER OF THOSE WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.
God Will reward you for seeking Him diligently!
5.Psalm 34:4 When you seek God He will hear you and deliver you from all your fears!
6. When you seek God, God will make you to prosper!
– seeking God will cause you to succeed; to advance!
2 Chronicles 26:5 The bible talks of Uzziah that … as long as he sought the LORD, GOD made him to prosper!
7: Seeking God will make you a carrier of the Presence and Power of God!
Luke 4:14-19 after fasting and praying for 40 days/nights Jesus returned in the power oc the Spirit!
Acts 6:5 talks of Stephen, a man FULL OF FAITH AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ! I think Stephen knew how to seek God!
And in Acts 6:8 we hear that…Stephen, full of faith and power did great wonders and signs among the people.
I believe when we genuinely seek God we will also witness genuine miracles, signs and wonders!
No gimmicks or tricks!
In Exodus 34:29-35
Moses’ face shone with the Glory of God when he returned from the mountain after 40 days and 40 nights in the Presence of God!
When we seek God we will carry His Glory upon us as Micah 3:8 says:
But truly I am FULL OF POWER BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD!
HALLELUJAH! LET US SEEK GOD PASSIONATELY!
The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing!

NKJV, Mark 5:36
As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”
When fear is in operation then faith can’t work. That is why Jesus told Jairus, Do not be afraid, only believe! No matter what’s happening around you, do not allow fear in your heart! Believe God and all will be well!
Shalom and blessed day!

“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Five sparrows are sold for two copper coins but God watches over every sparrow! The Bible says, fear not for you are more valuable than many sparrows! You are valuable to God and He is concerned about every detail of your life! Don’t be afraid just trust Him! God cares for you! Shalom and blessed day!

1 Peter 5:5-6
Submit to God, Resist the Devil
Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time
God resists the proud but gives Grace to the humble. Continue to walk in humility and God will pour more Grace on you! Pride is a cancer that kills but you will never lose with humility. Shalom and blessed day!

NKJV, 1 John 5:4
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
The Bible says, whosoever has been born of God overcomes the world! It means every born again child of God overcomes the world. And the Bible goes on to say this is the victory that overcomes the world – our Faith! Our faith in Jesus Christ overcomes the evil satanic system and all the arrangements of satan against believers. Faith is spiritual and is the weapon God gave us to overcome satan and his evil plans/schemes! Walk in victory today by faith in the finished work of Christ! Shalom and blessed day!

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
The Bible tells us that the greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength. The second is to love your neighbor as yourself! I challenge you today to love the Lord your God with everything in you and to love people as you do yourself! Love is of God and God Himself is love! Shalom and blessed day!

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
The Father Revealed
“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us. Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.

The Parable of the Persistent Widow
Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’” Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
Jesus spoke a parable to teach them that people must pray always and not give up. Most people lose or fail simply because they give up too early! Prayer calls patience and persistence! PUSH – pray until something happens! Refuse to quit, refuse to give up! Continue to pray until you get what you want! Shalom and blessed day!
