Then [with a deep longing] you will seek Me and require Me [as a vital necessity] and [you will] find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13AMP
Welcome back to The Fire Place! As we gain more momentum in our series on the making of God’s battle axe, we shall be discussing more important ingredients necessary in our formation as God’s special weapon here on earth. In man’s quest to become God’s battle axe, one important factor that must be learned and experienced in detail is the lifestyle of seeking God for a lifetime! It may look like there is no time we will discuss about God’s training mechanisms and not touch this principle, but the fact remains that we have not been given any other pathway except this ageless pattern of seeking God.
Seeking God carries an urgency that keeps fueling the desire of man to pant after God and follow Him intentionally for a lifetime.
Seeking God is far more than just having the intention to know and understand the Person of God. Seeking God carries an urgency that keeps fueling the desire of man to pant after God and follow Him intentionally for a lifetime. Men that lived to truly seek God never looked back again after hitting the track! Why? The level of hard work and consistency that brought them to the altar of seeking God is the kind that one might not recover from again for a lifetime! Today, I invite you to journey with me in this episode on the dimension of seeking God as a needed ingredient in becoming God’s battle axe. Get ready for the Fire Experience!
Men that lived to truly seek God never looked back again after hitting the track!
Until your quest for God leads you to a lifetime decision to seek God for a lifetime, you cannot enter your destination in God! In our anchor scripture, God speaking through Prophet Jeremiah revealed the blueprint needed to guide man’s journey into experiencing God; the art of seeking God! This special verse reveals God’s unwavering desire to see men seeking Him “with a deep longing”. God loves to be sought after! Remember, Our God is a God of principles and systems. He already instituted systems around all that man needs to do in accessing Him through man’s lifetime. So, if any man ever desires or nurses the intention of finding God, the man must be ready to seek God and search for Him passionately so as to find Him!
Until your quest for God leads you to a lifetime decision to seek God for a lifetime, you cannot enter your destination in God!
God delights Himself in hiding His face from man! Why? The journey into seeking and finding God was designed by God in such a way that it is impossible for anyone to seek Him, find Him and not return with an eternal evidence that cannot be erased from the person’s life ever again! The hurdles and steps to be followed in the quest of seeking God was designed to frustrate the effort of any fake seeker! So, if your motive for seeking God is wrong, it is only a matter of time, you will eventually get tired and back off! Why are you seeking Him? It can be that the reason why it is taking so long for you to experience God is because of your intentions. Watch it now!
The hurdles and steps to be followed in the quest of seeking God was designed to frustrate the effort of any fake seeker!
It is not enough to say “Yes” to God. What is more important is a commitment to stay with God long enough for Him to cook you for destiny fulfillment! We are in a generation that seems to be in a rush to see results. We have forgotten that anything that will last takes time to form! The law of process must be obeyed at all times! Until you are willing to pay the price needed in bringing down the purposes of God for your life, don’t expect so much of God’s influence in all you do! When a man pays the sacrifice to meet God, it becomes impossible for the man not to manifest God’s glory on earth! Everyone that succeeded through God knew they walked through a path that refined them and set them on the path of greatness.
Until you are willing to pay the price needed in bringing down the purposes of God for your life, don’t expect so much of God’s influence in all you do!
Seeking God takes time. It takes time to know God and understand His ways. Remember, He longs to have us come up higher into His presence and learn of Him. Whoever will pay the price to meet God must be ready for a lifetime of sacrifice! All through the scriptures, we have stories of men that waved the ways of this world goodbye for the singular purpose of spending quality time with God enough to understand Him! Moses spent 40 days and nights twice in his lifetime all to see His Glory and fellowship with Him! The standard of God stands firm forever. If it is true you love God and desire to seek Him, then it is simple; Pay the price and set your heart on God, decide to spend more time with Him daily until it pleases Him to reveal Himself to you.
When a man pays the sacrifice to meet God, it becomes impossible for the man not to manifest God’s glory on earth!
No man can successfully represent God before men without first having a track record of knowing God! It is when the journey of seeking and finding God is already in motion that God begins to brood over our lives and re-order it for the purpose of destiny fulfillment. Our world is filled with men that claim to be representing God to our world but yet their results loudly speak of their incomplete incubation. In this kingdom, when you skip classes and jump processes, the results you produce will always show forth the lessons you failed to learn! Until we realize where others missed it and start to live differently, it is only a matter of time, we will soon repeat their mistakes consistently!
It is when the journey of seeking and finding God is already in motion that God begins to brood over our lives and re-order it for the purpose of destiny fulfillment.
Every student in the school of purpose fulfillment must make a commitment with God never to repeat the failures of the older generations. We have been privileged to have access to all that have done; their success and failures, where they missed it and where they performed excellently. It is therefore our responsibility to allow God to use their life stories to show us clearly how our lives might end if we fail to take care of the little foxes that are still walking unarmed in our vineyard. If those character flaws could stop the past generals even with all their anointing and the mighty move of God they hosted, then our generation will be no match for those flaws if we fail to address them and ensure our lives are free from them before we embark on the journey of destiny fulfillment!
Every student in the school of purpose fulfillment must make a commitment with God never to repeat the failures of the older generations.
Finally, you must understand that the souls of men are counting on your decision to follow God and seek Him for them to also succeed in the battles of life. We are God’s answer to our world. Until men start to pant after God and fulfill His requirements for experiencing His ways, souls will keep dying without fail! Our motivation in seeking God must be fueled by our love for God and humanity. God already sowed the seed of love into mankind by sacrificing His only begotten Son for the remission of the sins of man. We have no excuse not to follow this path of love shown by Our Father.
Therefore, make a decision today to start to seek God with your lifetime! Start by walking with Him consistently. In the place of obeying His leading, every other thing will fall in place and set you on the plane of meeting God. God bless you as you do so! Were you blessed?
