Seek Me.

Who is God?

Someone who wants you to seek him.
Someone who is seeking you.

Jesus said, "For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost."  Luke 19:20

The subject of us seeking God is all through the Bible. God seeks for us through the Holy Spirit speaking to our hearts, trying to draw us all to God. Man then must seek for God, but not in a half-hearted way. We must eventually put God first in our lives, so we must seek to understand and know him as much as we are able. If we don't, he will just be on the periphery of our lives. We need him much more than that.

"The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it."   Matthew 13:45

"You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart."  Jeremiah 29:13

"But from there you will seek the LORD your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul."  Deut. 4:29

My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding—
indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:1-5

Who am I?

Someone who has sought for God my whole life and has found him. The best thing I've ever done.
