What does it mean “sought the LORD?” Sought means to attempt or have a desire to obtain or achieve something. Sought is the past tense of seek. What do you seek or have sought in the past? Perhaps you seek a better job, a better life, or perhaps you have sought someone to love. Regardless, if you have or have not, we all seek something out of this life we are living. We may seek different things, but we may all be passionate about seeking out of dreams, our purpose in life.
“Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the LORD your God. Begin to build the sanctuary of the LORD God , so that you may bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD and the sacred articles belonging to God into the temple that will be built for the Name of the LORD.”1 Chronicles 22:19 (NIV)
“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.”Psalm 9:10 (NIV)
God instructs us to seek him. There are many many verses in the Word of God which speak regarding seeking the LORD, however, we are given a choice whether we desire to seek Him or not. As for me, I choose to seek the LORD. When I was younger I was more passionate about seeking the LORD. When one gets busy with life, sometimes, you let slide the things which are truly important. When you get older, as I am, you reignite your passions for the important things in life. One of those important things for me is to be passionate about seeking the LORD daily. To trust Him with my life, to guide me, to comfort and strengthen me.
God bless. As for me, I will seek the LORD continually. Have a great day. Thanks for visiting. Remember I appreciate y’all.
