Points to note:
- God rewards those who deligently seek him
- persue God with the right motives
- pursue God first and all other things will be given to you
- persistently seeking God is learning how to really live
Giving someone your attention is the greatest gift because your time is your life. When you turn your face to someone and focus your eyes on them, it makes them feel like you genuinely care and are interested in what they have to say.
You can do this with God, you can turn your face to him in prayer. Just look up! Show him that you’re checking in and ready to talk. After you listen to God through his Word, then the second step of prayer is to seek him. God makes many promises in the Bible for those who seek him. If you’re having trouble finding God, make sure you’re seeking him with the right motives, wanting to know him and not just wanting to get something from him.
You’re going to find God when you really want to know him. Would you like God to reward your business, your finances, your relationships, and your future? Then seek him. When you pursue God first, you don’t have to worry about all the other things the world says you need to stress over.
Give him your attention. Turn your face to him, and show him that you want to give him first place in your life. As you persistently seek God, you’ll start learning how to really live.
