The Price and Prize of Seeking the Lord


Word Of The Day:

“The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.” – Psalm 34:10

The Lord filled the bible with His promises. He is Lord, and He will make His promises come to pass. Never in the history of mankind did He forsaken His people. God is God, and He is true to His promises. Then why did we want? Why did sometimes He allowed us to pass through circumstances we think bigger than we can handle? Let’s take a look at Paul’s experience.

 “I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. – Philippians 4:12”

Even one of the greatest (and humblest) servant of the Lord did want! We are not exempted, indeed. As we learn to follow the Lord more and more, we are facing each day various circumstances and situations that sometimes we experience over and over again. We even asking God to “take away if there’s anything that hinders me to  overcome this situation.” I often come in that kind of scenario. Little did we know that it’s not all about what’s wrong with us, but it’s all about the process! Paul endured that, may it be our driving force to endure it, because as we all aware of, we are a living testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are bringing once more into life the marvelous power, guidance and provision of God that He showed among His people in every generation.

So I say, rejoice! If we suffer want, then it’s not all about our fault. Let’s realign our attitudes over it. Ask God to seek our hearts to see if there’s something that He don’t want us to have so that He may lead us to His righteousness. If we can’t discern any unrighteous attitude within our hearts, then it’s about time to accept that we’re under the process. Look it this way, then after all of these, we can encourage other people as well. That’s the testimony: displaying who is the God of your life.

That’s my God. I hope He is your God too 🙂

God bless you!
