Welcome! We’ve created a Special Series for you this month! We’ll
take 4 weeks and focus on 4 elements to ‘Reset’ our lives for Him.
We’re calling it ’4×4 Reset’. If you missed the introduction, you
can find more details here. Each post will feature a READ IT
(scripture verse), a SEE IT (motivation), & a DO IT (challenge/
call to action). Our 4×4 Reset Toolbox is available and has links
to all the posts and to our resources, including our Build a Firm
Foundation Printable tracking page. Be sure to subscribe to not
miss a day, & join us on Twitter & Instagram using our hashtag
SEEK: Active Faith
The word “seek” is an action word. It is not passive. It is not inactive. It is purposeful, intentional, resolute. God calls us to seek Him.
My little boys love to play hide-and-go-seek. One child joyfully overturns pillows and cushions in search. He jumps behind curtains and runs into shower stalls. He searches high into closets and low under beds. Little eyes, delighted heart, hopeful seeker– he does not give up the search. One brother on a mission to find the other.
This one seeking does not complain it is his turn to hunt because he has become a treasure hunter. He explores our home with excitement and laughter. The suspense eventually fills the air as we all wait to see when one will find the other.
Their seeking has inspired me. Am I seeking after Jesus? Unlike my children, He does not hide in dark corners. Rather – He waits for me. What would my faith look like if I were seeking like them … in anticipation, with joy, hopeful, excited — eager? Do I seek after God as if my heart will burst with every verse I read? Or has the seeking become passive? Rather than hunting for soul-filling treasure, I am waiting for God to put on a show for me.
How have I become casual with seeking God’s goodness in my every day?
Do I look for Him high in the sky and low in the flowers? Are moments spent solely for the purpose of seeking His glory? Or do I pass by His beauty just a bit too quickly as I rush to our next thing.
My boys, so full of life and hope, seek with passion. I do not seek after God with wild hunger determined to be filled with His goodness. Rather than thirst after the Word that refreshes parched hearts … I scratch off quiet time from a “to-do” list.
1 Chronicles 16:11 Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always
Matthew 6:33 seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Jeremiah 29:13 is one of my favorite verses. I love it for a few reasons. 1. God reminds us to seek Him. 2. God promises we will find Him. 3. We are told it requires all our heart.
Will you join me and seek Him with passion? To come to His Word with hunger not obligation nor time restraints? You will find Him!
Ready or not, here I come!
