Learning to Sit at His Feet

31 Days of Following Jesus

Seek the Lord Wholeheartedly

“Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near” (Isaiah 55:6).

Have you ever played the game hide-and-seek? You count to 100, and in the meantime your friends hide. I remember as a child I would strive my hardest to find my friends who were hiding. Something motivated me to really labor to find, or seek, my friends!

Have you ever felt that way as you seek after God? How hard do you work at seeking Him? I’m afraid that sometimes I don’t labor in my striving after God! I seem to coast too often and not pursue the Lord with all my heart.

In Numbers 14:24, Caleb is said to have “a different spirit”–he followed God “wholeheartedly.” Be like Caleb! Take time today to seek the Lord fervently through worship, the Word of God and prayer, and follow through with wholehearted obedience.
