When it comes to seeking after, to following, to looking for, to going after, to being resolved to go after something or someone until it or he/she or they are found, we are to seek one above all else. That one is Christ. That one is the Lord. That one is God. But just as our number one seeking after should be Jesus, this seeking should not be the end but the beginning when it comes to seeking. For we should seek the Lord, and ever more of Him, and His Spirit, and ever more of His Spirit, and His Word, and ever more of His Word, and His will, and ever more of His will, and His ways, and ever more of His ways, and of loving, pleasing, adoring, honoring, obeying, serving, and glorifying Him, and ever more of this!
Always we should seek more of the Lord and everything He desires for us to be and to do. The Lord makes clear by His Spirit through His Word and by His Spirit to our hearts personally in line with His Word His will and ways, and here in these verses is a small but critically important portion of what God reveals to us we are to seek as part of our seeking Him. Let us seek and follow after with all our hearts, friend, the Lord and all to which and to what He calls us! Let us seek Him! His ways! His will! His plans! His purpose! And, oh, yes, let us seek to bring Him love, honor, praise, thanksgiving, adoration, reverence, honor, service, obedience, joy, pleasure, and glory in all that we think, say, and do! Oh, hallelujah, oh YES! Amen! Amen and Amen!
Please note in the following verses the word “pursue”. When we passionately pursue something or someone, we are strongly committed and dedicated to going after it, to searching for it, to seeking it, and to finding it. In these verses is just a tiny snippet of what we as God’s children and servants should be seeking in our everyday lives lived for Him!
