Luke 11:9

“Seek and you will find.”

+++

What is it that you are seeking?

This is a good question to ask yourself.

What you seek you do tend to find.

If you are seeking reasons to gripe, you will no doubt find them.

If you are seeking reasons to be grateful, you will no doubt find them as well.

Do you believe in a God of wrath and punishment or a God of love?

If you believe in the wrathful God, you will no doubt find reasons to believe that that is what God is like.

And the same goes for the God of love.

Jesus is quoted as saying that if you knew him, then you would know God (John 14:7).

While Jesus is quite stern and firm in dealing with hypocrites (usually the religious leaders), he is not with so-called sinners.

Jesus is compassionate and caring to those who are missing the mark.

He enters into relationship with them and then, through his care and concern, they are moved to change their ways.

Jesus shows us the face of God depicted in another scripture verse that states: “God is love” (1 John 4:8).

When we know that God is love and that we are eternally loved, then we tend to want to share that love with others.

We tend to listen to our hearts’ desires instead of our egos’ desires.

These desires rise from our deepest selves, which would be one-in-the-same with the holy Spirit’s desires for us.

Jesus said that if we know how to give good gifts to our children, how much more will God “give the holy Spirit to those who ask him? (Luke 11:13)”

So, ask for the Spirit to inflame your heart.

Then you can’t help but to find.

Because in the seeking you will be finding in each moment of the way.
