Seek

Deuteronomy 4:29 

“But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.

 

I love seeing Christians on fire for the Lord. Especially when they are pouring themselves into the study of scripture. A few days ago, someone reached out and sent this passage of scripture and asked, “How do you “seek” God? The power behind this Word and the transformation that it offers forever changes the person when we understand how we are to seek the Lord.

 

To expound on this, we need to look at the meaning of “seek” in Hebrew. The meaning of “seek” is the means to attempt to possess, to seek with care, and with care for. In Deuteronomy 6:4-6 it further reiterates this passage. If we take the meaning of the word “seek” and apply it to our walk with the Lord, it would say something like this. “We are to desire the Lord and care for Him in a way that in our seeking Him we desire to hold Him as Lord and we love Him with everything we desire; with our heart, soul, and might/strength.” Understanding the word “seek” injects passion and a desire to know Him in His fullness. This requires wholehearted devotion and a desire for communion with our Lord and Savior.

 

Deuteronomy 6:4-6 “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one!

 “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

“These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.
