Seek good and not evil, That you may live; So the LORD God of hosts will be with you, (Amos 5:14)

The LORD God of hosts desires to be with you. The One who formed the mountains and created the winds seeks to commune with you. He who calls the sun in the morning and the moon at night is calling you to Himself. The only one able to tread the high places of the earth has followed you everywhere you have journeyed and will never leave you nor forsake you. The creator of Heavens and Earth has a created this earth so that we may see His glory and seek Him.

What better time then now to seek His face. Seek Him while there is still time. Seek Him and live. Come and find the satisfaction that your soul longs for. Apart from God there is no resting place for your soul. He is the living waters that your soul thirsts for. He is the giver of all good gifts and the source of goodness, only by His common grace do we know any good. Any seeking that is not for Him or his glory leads to death. Only He can satisfy what your souls long for.

In heaven all of eternity will be a seeking after God. There is no reason to wait until then to begin that seeking. Now is the time to begin looking for His power and wisdom in all of creation. Don’t let another day start without thankfulness for God’s unfailing faithfulness that woke you up. Let every breath be a reminder of His favor on your life. Allow nothing to inspire more awe then the fact that the King of the Universe sent His Son to die for you. Now is the perfect time to take in glimpses of His glory so that Heaven will not be a complete shock when we see Him in His majesty and splendor. That truly will be the true essence of living.
