The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.
- Lamentations 3:25
We should be seeking God like it’s our job. Because, well, it is.
We were made to know God, to be in relationship with him, and to connect with him. All of our heart’s deepest longings are met in him. All throughout the Bible, God urges people to reach out to him, because he loves us, and longs for us to seek him.
So, let’s get practical here folks. How do we go about this? How do we seek an invisible God? It’s not like we can just ask him out for coffee. However, since he is God, he can and has made a way for us to know him and interact with him. While we can’t actually sit down over coffee and discuss life, we can sit down with a cup of coffee and his word. We can read about him, learn more about him, pray to him, and ask him for direction in our lives. And thankfully, getting to know God isn’t rocket science. It’s a relationship, much like any other. The same rules apply. If you want to have a good relationship, you have to put forth the effort, spend the time, keep pursuing, and keep moving forward. If we really want to know God, if we want him to be a part of our lives, it takes daily effort. And, that’s what seeking is all about. When we’re seeking God, he promises that we’ll find him. Our verse says that we won’t merely find him though, we will find him to be good.
