Shun Evil~Seek The Lord

We learned that Rehoboam did evil because he did not prepare his heart to seek the Lord. My dad always had a Scripture car. On the back of the vehicles I remember was Isaiah 55:6. It says, “Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near.”

What does it mean to seek the Lord? He isn’t lost. Psalm 46:1 says that He is ever present to those in trouble. Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

I believe this verse is helping us realize that seeking the Lord is to make Him our priority. First. Predominant. Focus. Center. We can gain this perspective from David’s words. Psalm 27:4 says, “One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.”
