GENERATION OF SEEKERS

GENERATION OF SEEKERS

Psa. 24:6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him,
Who seek Your face.

Before the return of Christ, I believe there will be a surge of people who are seeking after God. This could be called spiritual hunger and this hunger is a gift from God. It is not natural for fallen man to seek after God. Think about it, all of us were bored in church growing up, it can actually be said that many times we hated those religious services. Our hearts were far from God and He was not in any of our thoughts.
If you are a Christian, there came a day in your life when all of that changed. You became a seeker of God the day Amazing Grace captured your soul. The Lord began to draw you with His love, you became a seeker of God. Richard Sibbes spoke about God seekers hundreds of years ago, listen to his words.

“This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face. Christians must be seekers. This is the generation of seekers. All mankind, if ever they will come to heaven, they must be a generation of seekers. Heaven is a generation of finders, of possessors, of enjoyers, seekers of God. But here we are a generation of seekers. We want somewhat that we must seek. When we are at best, we want the accomplishment of our happiness. It is a state of seeking here, because it is a state of want; we want something alway. But to come more particularly to this seeking the face of God, or the presence of God … The presence of God meant here is, that presence that he shows in the time of need, and in his ordinances. He shows a presence in need and necessity, that is, a gracious presence to his children, a gracious face. As in want of direction, he shows his presence of light to direct them; in weakness he shows his strength; in trouble and perplexity he will show his gracious and comfortable presence to comfort them. In perplexity he shows his presence to set the heart at large, answerable to the necessity. So in need God is present with his children, to direct them, to comfort them, to strengthen them…”

It’s funny how The Lord draws us to Himself. It may start off with a broken heart from family problems or sometimes it comes from a health crisis or financial chaos. Whatever your problems may be, these problems often cause us to call on The Lord. When He answers the prayer, He does it with more than just a change of circumstances. He Himself comes to you and loves you. Often, our problems don’t matter anymore. We have been captured by His love.
This reminds me of Peter’s fishing dilemma, He had been fishing all night with no luck when Jesus shows up. “Launch out into the deep and let your nets down for a catch”. Before he knew it, Peter’s boat was overflowing with fish. Suddenly the fish were no longer important, he was in the presence of The Lord of Glory. Peter was hooked, he had become a seeker of God.
