SEEK GOD

Last Sunday, Pastor Terry taught on the importance of seeking God.  Here are some great scriptures for you to meditate on:

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Matt 6:33 NIV

God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. 
Acts 17:27 NIV

He sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God; and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper. 2 Chron 26:5 NKJV

…if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 
2 Chron 7:14 NKJV

Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart! Ps 119:2 NKJV

Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore! 
Ps 105:4 NKJV

Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him 
while He is near.  Isa 55:6 NKJV

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jer 29:11-13NIV

The Lord looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.  Ps 14:2 NIV
