TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am pleased with your pursuit. Come into the secret place. Read My story and let it speak into your heart. I want to know you and be known by you. I Am an open book.
AS SIMPLE AS THAT
There is a Kingdom principle that makes Father God smile. It melts His heart and makes Him willing to give you the Kingdom. That principle is seeking.
Seeking proves that you want it. Seeking qualifies you for the thing you’re looking for, whether it’s your identity, your purpose, God’s face, deeper relationship – whatever it is. Seek and your Abba says you will find.
Think of it as an Easter egg hunt. You want to go after something good in your life that glorifies God or draws you closer to Him? Those “eggs” are hidden in plain site. He rolls them right past and all you have to do is pick them up.
It’s so important it is to live a seeker-lifestyle. Someone who is seeking the Kingdom and seeking to go to the next level in everything they do. Why? God meets people in the place of seeking.
Anytime you see Jesus say, “Lo,” what He’s saying is ‘“look for me.” Jesus meets you in the place of seeking. He likes to be pursued. And when you’re not seeking Him and He shows up, you don’t know that He’s there.
Don’t let that be you. Don’t be so focused on lesser things that you forget to continually seek Him in that secret place. It’s His presence that qualifies you for upgrade.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. – Matthew 7:7
The number seven is all about the Spirit of God. That’s what you’re seeking. That’s the door you’re knocking on. It’s His good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. It’s as simple as that.
