Devotion: The Future Begins Today


Scripture tells us “those who come to God must believe that he is or that he exists” (Hebrews 11:6).  That all sounds good, because those who come to God, most of the time, do believe that he does exists.  We are also told that those who come must believe that “he is a rewarder of them who diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).  If we come already believing that God exists, then why do we have to “diligently seek” him?  What exactly are we to look for?

Not only are we to seek him but we are to him.  “Diligently” means “to carefully, attentively, thoroughly, conscientiously, and very meticulously search for something.”  But if we come to God already believing that he is and that he exists, then why do we have to seek him?  You would think that if we come to him, believing that he exists, then we would have sought him before coming to him.  Apparently, this be not the case because we are told to “diligently seek” him.  In diligently seeking God, what exactly are we to look for?  Some believe that we are to seek his presence, while others believe that we are to seek his face.  Some say seeking his hand is the thing to do, while others mention seeking his rest as the ultimate thing to seek.  Most believe that we are to seek his righteousness, while others believe that his grace is sufficient.  The thought is that those who “diligently seek” God will not be disappointed, but will instead, be rewarded.  But if we do not know exactly what we are looking for, then how would we know when we have found it?  So the question remains, what exactly are we to look for?

We are looking for “ANY AND EVERYTHING AS IT PERTAINS TO GOD.”  God wants us to find everything we can find about him.  God wants us to “diligently seek” his heart, his face, and his holy presence.  God wants us to “diligently seek” his fellowship, his love, and his rest.  God wants us to involve him in every aspect of our life.  If you have not involved God and his word in every aspect of your life, then now is the time to start.  We guarantee it will change your future.  Now is the time to seriously consider starting your future, especially if you have not do so before.

As always, we pray that today’s inspirational message will bless you, inform you, and that you will be the better for having read it.  If blessed by this message please share so that others may be blessed as well.  Amen.
