RCCG Open Heaven Devotional for 28th July 2023 Message:
Yesterday, we discussed three ways we can seek God, namely – through His word, with all of our hearts and by obeying His will. Today, we shall continue to look at how we can seek God and the blessings that come to those who seek Him. We can effectively seek and find God by faith. Hebrews 11:6 says: 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.
It takes faith to find God because He is a Spirit. He is invisible to the physical eyes and can only be worshipped genuinely in spirit and in truth (John 4:23). The Bible says something very profound about the life of the children of Israel – “He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel” (Psalm 103:7). The implication of this is that while Moses knew the ways of God, the children of Israel went along with Him through the miracles they saw God performing. Therefore, Moses was deep in God, but the children of Israel were shallow and easily tossed here and there by the challenges they faced on their way to the promised land.
Moses believed in God and took Him by His word; the children of Israel lived by what they saw. This is why they responded negatively to situations they encountered in the wilderness. They refused to see God in all those experiences. Moreover, seekers of God go the extra mile to get to Him. In our Bible text for today, we read about the Greeks who believed in the Messianic message. They came to see and have an encounter with Jesus.
Beloved, who are you seeking in the Church – the Pastor, the choristers, who? I congratulate you if you are a seeker of God through Jesus Christ. God seekers are never put to shame. The Bible speaks of those who seek God as being protected from shame. “They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied” (Psalms 37:19).
As we navigate through this second half of year 2023, seek the Lord earnestly and you shall find Him mighty to save, mighty to bless and mighty to keep you alive.
Father, I thank You for revealing Yourself to me. May sin not hide me from You anymore, in Jesus’ name.
