“I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears” (Psalm 34:4).
While you seek the Lord, the blessings which reach you are numerous. His eyes are longing to see you seeking Him. If you seek Him, you will definitely find Him. He is so rich in mercy that He opens the doors to those who knock and He gives to those who ask. If you seek Him with all your heart, you will definitely find Him (Jeremiah 29:13).
Jonah sought God from fish’s belly. God heard him, pardoned him and graciously allowed Him to continue to do God’s Work.
Look at Psalm number 142. It is written as “Maschil of David when he was in the cave; a prayer”. The lions will dwell in the caves with their cubs. The lion which goes out of the cave in search of food may return to the cave anytime.
In a worse manner, Saul was searching David. The roaring lion which prowls around looking for someone to devour which is satan was also against David. Even in that situation, David sought God. The witness of David was “I sought the Lord and he answered me; He delivered me from all my fears” (Psalm 34:4).
While seeking God, the thought of the lion came to David. “The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing” (Psalm 34:10).
Dear children of God let not the problems you face make you tired. Do not get upset over the problems you face. Whatever be the situation, seek God. He will hasten back to help you.
Maybe, for so many years, some good things might not have reached you. The marriage proposals of your children might not have materialized. Seek the face of God through fasting. Think “Where do I lack? What is the sin on me? On whom I have bitterness and enmity?” and pray breaking the shackles. God will definitely answer you and bless you with goodness.
When Hannah was a barren woman, she was not willing to continue to hear the unsavoury words. She went to the temple and sought God. She prayed pouring out her heart with a vow. God helped her by giving a blessed posterity. He will do a miracle for you also. You will not face blame or shame. Your days of sorrow are coming to an end.
To meditate: “If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you” (II Chronicles 15:2).
