6 And without faith it is impossible to please him. He who comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.2 [The Lord told us to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness as the highest priority of our life. Mat 6:33. Then he told us us how, the one thing that is needed; to sit at His feet and listen to His words that he speaks to us, Luke 10:39-42; we sit at his feet by waiting in humble silence, listening, and watching while thinking of the name of Jesus. When we obey what we hear Him tell us to do, we are following Jesus. From the Word of the Lord within: "In humble silence we sit and wait. Think on His name. Sit with me, and I will make you clean. Sit with me, and I will reveal all. Follow me as fast as you can; you start by sitting. If those who hear will obey, their progress will be swift."]
29 But if from there you will seek the LORD your God, you will find him, if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul. [Where is God to be turned to with all our heart and soul and found? In Deu 30:14, God tells us: "the word," (who is God, John 1:1), "is very near to you, in your mouth and in your heart so that you may obey it." From the Word of the Lord within: "God is not found going to services or reading about him." God has given the light to every man who comes into the world so that each man might believe, John 1:7,9. Christ, the word and light, is within you, patiently waiting for you to seek Him in your heart so that he might teach you how to live godly and righteously in this present world. From the Word of the Lord within: "He told us it was not enough to seek God, we must seek with all our heart and soul. You will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart. It is not enough to believe in Jesus; we must believe what He says and then act on it."]
|1 Chronicles 16:11|
11 Seek the Lord and His strength; yearn for and seek His face, to be in His presence continually!1[Turn inward to seek God for what may be known of God is revealed in them, Rom 1:19; God and Christ are only known by revelation. Mat 11:27. The kingdom of God is within you and around you. Luke 17:21. Faith comes by hearing the word which is in your heart and mouth to obey, that is the word of faith we preach. Rom 10:8,17]
17 I love those who love me; and those who seek me early and diligently shall find me.1 ["The Father is in you all, Christ is in you, and the Kingdom of Heaven is in you; there, in your hearts, is where you will find them all. Know him there searching your hearts, and find him there trying your minds and hearts; incline your ears, and give ear to him there, who will render to everyone of you according to your words and works whether they are good or evil," (by George Fox).]
25 The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him. [To wait on God is to seek. To wait on God is to persistently sit in humble silence, listen for his voice and words, watch for his revelations, hear his commands, and then obey Him; only those who heed and obey Him receive eternal salvation. Heb 5:9. He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Heb 11:6.]
|Isaiah 26:9 |
9 With my soul I have yearned for you in the night; yes, with my spirit within me I will seek you early; for when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
