Seeking the Lord

“Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually!” (1 Chronicles 16:11)

Wayne Grudem says that “…when we realize that God is the definition and source of all good, we will realize that God himself is the ultimate good we seek. We will say with the Psalmist: ‘Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever” (Psalm 73:25-26).'”

Knowledge of God and our Savior Jesus Christ – the true God as they are revealed in the Scripture – is our defense against the “winds of doctrine” that are blowing at gale voice today: “…to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes” (Ephesians 4:13-14).

Knowledge of the God who never changes, who is eternal, who is faithful, who is love – such knowledge magnifies our praise and intensifies our worship. The One who is always with us, who sustains us, who grants us our very breath is our unfailing refuge. “The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms” (Deuteronomy 33:27).
