‘I am seeking the Lord’, is a term that you will often hear in any Christian gatherings. It indicates that they are praying to the Lord and asking Him for something. That is a true Christian principle that we should all do from time to time. The only issue that I have with it, is sometimes, I mean sometimes, we use that as a cushion to avoid what we are supposed to be doing as believers.
This is what I mean. There are some answers that we do not need the Lord to tell us through His Spirit. If we take the time to read and study the bible, we will find the answers we need in there. A good and easy example is dating. We know scripture encourages us to marry other believers, being equally yoked. But when we start dating a non-believer and start seeking God if that is His will, well, all you must do is read the scriptures. We know what God says in His word.
The point of this blog is to remind you of the importance of feeding on God’s word. Jesus tells us in Matthew 7:7, seek and ye will find. Seeking is only for a season, and the promise is that we will find. But feeding is constant. Feeding on the word and on Him, is something that we believers must make a priority. Feeding entails waking up early in the morning to study the word and pray. It entails being careful of what you see, hear, and say because you do not want them to enter your heart.
When you are constantly feeding on the word and on Him, your seeking seasons will be short because you will have your answers immediately. But the cost of feeding is always high. The cost of feeding a child or friends is always high, but the reward is so good. So, I encourage whoever will read this blog, let us feed more on the word and on Him.
