Verse for Today: Friday, April 27, 2012
Psalms 14:2 – The Lord looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.
Man is a seeker, but often he goes after the temporal which do not meet his deep inner needs. In essence human life is one of seeking after a series of things and situations which do not give lasting satisfaction and so it makes man move from one desire to another all through his life. This makes human life empty and unfulfilled. All the while, God seeks after man and asks him to seek after God who alone can meet his every need and desire to its full satisfaction. God comes to man with all that will satisfy him in this life and the life after. God meets all the cost involved in giving man things and situations which are eternal because God loves man in spite of man’s imperfections and limitations. In fact, God has paid the price for meeting all the needs of man by giving His only begotten Son as a sacrifice on Calvary’s cross. All who trust in the death of Jesus on the cross will have their soul’s needs paid for. Along with the salvation of his soul, man is also given all that He needs to live a life of satisfaction and fulfillment in this world and beyond. God is seeking man to give him all that He needs, but man has to respond to God’s call. He is keen to know who among the human beings will diligently seek after Him and His way of salvation of their souls. Once they respond to God positively and accept the salvation God offers, their spiritual needs are fully met. Along with it, God guarantees them emotional well-being for which they could trust God. The Spirit of God who dwells in the hearts of those who accept God’s salvation will grant them peace in a chaotic world. They will be given answers to their puzzling questions in life. They will be able to live a life of trust and faith in the Lord and thus cast all their cares upon Him. They will then work for God’s cause as His ambassadors in this world and as they keep going, He will meet their basic needs as human beings to live a contented life here on earth.
Dear friend, have you been a true seeker of eternal things here on earth? Have you found God and His free gift of eternal salvation? Today God is seeking after you to give you His great gift of salvation. It is a matter of going to the One who is seeking after you to meet all your spiritual, emotional and physical needs and that person is God Almighty. He will give you salvation of your soul, eternal life, peace in all situations, joy unspeakable and holy boldness to face all your situations. He will grant you fellowship with Triune God. His angels will guard you in all your situations. He loves you without expecting any thing in return. His love is willing to forgive you of all your past sins and faults. His love is deeper than the deepest ocean and higher than the highest peaks in this universe. All He expects is that you live for Him with a grateful heart. It is supernatural life in a natural environment. It is life in the power of God. Today God is seeking for those human beings who are willing to understand and accept the offer of spiritual blessings that He wants to bestow. He wants to give you Jesus Christ as His greatest gift and along with Jesus, He wants to give you all that you need to live a life that is totally surrendered to Him. If you are a seeker today, know that the God of this universe is seeking after you. He will not rest until He finds you to give you all that you are seeking after.
Romans 8:32 – God who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all – how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give all things?
Thought for Today
When man responds with his searching heart for God who is seeking after the heart of a repentant man, there is a complementary relationship.
