Message for March 1, 2020 from Pastor Shirley

    The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any who understood, dealt wisely, and sought after God, inquiring for and of Him and requiring Him [of vital necessity].  Psalm 14:2 

      The word sought means: seek to go in search of, look for,  to pursue. God first pursued us because of his great love he has for us.  Then there is a desire in us to pursue Him. We love Him, because He first loved us 1 John 4:19.  Jeremiah 24:7 tells us, “I will give them a heart to know me.” 

      Psalms 142:2 tells us that the Lord looks down from Heaven to see if anyone is seeking after Him.  God promises us that if we seek Him with all our heart we will find Him.  

      God is not trying to hide from us or even makes it hard for us to find Him.  It is all for the purpose of getting to “know” Him. Know is to be aware of through observation, inquiry, or information.  In the Bible the Old Testament and the New Testament words for “seek” God will all your heart means: to seek the face of God, to desire, to seek earnestly, to diligently for to pursue.

      Everybody is pursuing something.  What a difference it would make in our lives if our first pursuit would be to “know” God.  To put Him first and allow that to be the foundation of everything else is in our life!
