TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I long to give you rest, to reward you for seeking My presence. It is here you will find peace of mind and the ability to move up to greater things. There is more of My heart to discover. Come! Go with Me.
YOUR REWARD IS WAITING
Seeking is a big deal to Jesus. There is always a reward attached to seeking. Not only will you find, but other levels of intimacy and blessing are always attached.
To seek means to pursue until you see. Do you know what causes you to give up? Offense. That’s why seekers qualify for finding because the only way you can continue to seek is if you get past your offense because seeking isn’t easy. It’s not comfortable and it can cause you to go into some territory you’d rather ignore and hope it goes away.
Jesus Christ will show up in your life – even the uncomfortable parts. He’ll lead you into a place you were not expecting to go. He’ll show up in a way that you didn’t expect Him to. He will tell you to go places and love people you don’t want to. He’ll do things you didn’t even know He did and you have to be able to deal with the offense of that.
I’m going to tell you, there’s a very offensive side to Jesus. It’s outright offensive that He’ll show up and tell you to be a giver when you’re so broke you can’t even pay attention. It’s outright offensive that He’ll wake you up at 3:33 a.m. and tell you to seek Him.
It’s offense that keeps us from seeking and I want to tell you, get over it! If you want to see great blessing, unbelievable upgrade and favor, seek and keep on seeking even when you want to shout, “What are you doing here Jesus? I don’t understand!”
You weren’t called to understand. You were called to seek. Once you do, He’ll be found and you’ll suddenly go, “Oh, there you are. I see you in this. I get it now and I’ll never be the same.”
You’ll be changed forever and that’s the point of seeking. Your reward is waiting.
Sharon will become a pasture for flocks, and the Valley of Achor a resting place for herds, for my people who seek me. – Isaiah 66:10
