Seeking God

Knowing that God is my help is not enough: I must ‘seek God’. I must invest time in discovering his heart, and in finding His intentions and motivations. I must be bold to carry my dilemmas and problems to him, and ask my Father to help me. His help and deliverance is available…as I seek him.
=============================
Scripture

Psalm 70:4-5
May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you! May those who love your salvation say evermore, “God is great!” But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay!
Observation
The psalmist knows who God is (his help and deliverer)…but he knows that he is not yet experiencing the full measure of what God has made available to him. God is his help…but his help is not yet fully realized. God is his deliverer…but he is not yet delivered. Merely knowing that these things are available is not enough: the full measure of God’s help and deliverance is only found in ‘seeking God’.
Application
I need God’s help! I am not able to accomplish everything that needs to be accomplished in my life. I am not able to win every battle that I fight. I am not able to provide every resource that I need. This week has made it abundantly clear to me again, just how much I need God’s help.

Seeking God is not about figuring out where he is hiding, like a game of spiritual hide-and-seek. God is not hiding from me, he is ever present and faithful. If I can’t see him, then it means that I have turned around and am looking in the wrong direction.
Prayer
God, I need you! I can’t solve every problem, or fill every need in my life. I humbly bring my burdens to you today, and ask for your strength, provision, deliverance, and wisdom. Thank you for being my help and deliverance, and I choose today to seek you and daily turn my heart back to you so that I could walk in the full measure of your provision and strength. Thank you for your faithfulness!
