It’s Seeking Time

My, Devotion to Him #226

Verse Passage: Hosea 10:12 “Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.” – NIV

My daughter and I love to play. We play hide and seek which is usually not a long game nor a hard game because she’s 2 years old. But nevertheless we play the game. She hides by getting on the bed and pulling the covers over herself but she leaves a foot out or her hair is showing. Sometimes she moving and other times she’s giggling. I pretend that I can’t find her and sometimes I call out her name. She will either lift the covers off of her and I pretend to be frightened or I might have to take the covers off and find her. Other times I hide and she tries to seek. I’ll wait till she gets close then I will spring out from where I am and usually give a “boo!” Which in turn she laughs. 

She doesn’t realize that it was her who was actually sought no matter what role we were playing in. 

In the above passage we are told to seek the Lord until He comes and rains righteousness on us. The object of the story I had told you is that in our seeking of Him it is that His eyes are on us all the time. He intercepts our path, pours out vast amounts of blessings upon us for He Himself had actually been seeking us. 

Search for Him and He will be found. He longs for your path and His to interwind together. It is a Fathers joy to interact with His children. As I love to be with my little one and know the feeling of a happy heart so is it true for God concerning us. We are at the forefront of His thoughts, His actions, and His motives.

Stop playing around with trivial things with this world and start playing with the Father. It’s time for you to seek. There is treasure to be found. Theres a connection to be rekindled. There is a relationship to be tended to. Don’t give up. Because it is in the seeking that what is sought will be found and what is found is something beyond our wildest dreams. 

God bless!
