Diligently Seek HIM

Hebrews 11:6    But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek HIM.   

Once again, this verse has proven true in my life.  I had the opportunity to attend a women’s retreat this  past weekend with some of the ladies in my church.  In talking with some of these ladies in anticipation of this upcoming event, I found that each of them was attending  with the same purpose in mind.  That purpose was to hear the individual message that God had for us.  And He definitely did not disappoint.  I loved hearing these ladies walk away saying that God had spoken to them in a personal way and that the message they received was powerful.

Hebrews 11:6 tells us that if we diligently seek to hear from HIM, He will speak.  However, life can so easily get in the way. To our shame, distractions have become a way of life for us and time to really seek the heart of God just isn’t a priority.

Let me encourage you today to do something powerful.  Set aside some time to listen to the voice of God.  Start with praise and worship.  Follow with a heartfelt prayer that includes a plea to draw you closer to Him.  Ask Him to allow you to see more of Him.  I have never been disappointed or found the words of this Hebrews scripture to be untrue.  Start with just a few minutes spent each day in your prayer closet.  You won’t be disappointed.
