VerseD: James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
James 1:5 ESV

God desires that we each turn to Him for true wisdom, which is His righteousness in Christ.

Turn to Him today, and receive God’s wisdom.

VerseD: Isaiah 55:6-7

“Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord , that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”
Isaiah 55:6‭-‬7, ESV

Today is the day of salvation. Once this life is over, there are no more chances to seek and call on the Lord.

Choose today to know God and be pardoned of all sins!

VerseD: James 4:8

Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
James 4:8, ESV

God is always near (omnipresent). Yet, we are more aware when we diligently seek His face through Bible reading, prayer, and fellowship with other Christians.

And only by Him are we made clean and can we think rightly.

VerseD: Jeremiah 29:13

You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13, ESV

“When I have time …”

“After I do this …”

“I have so many other obligations …”

We wonder why we do not see God … when we refuse to make seeking Him a priority.

Make time for God every day.

VerseD: Isaiah 26:9

My soul yearns for you in the night; my spirit within me earnestly seeks you. For when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
Isaiah 26:9, ESV

When God ordains calamity and strife, the wise see His reproof and grow closer to Him. It is easy to grow complacent amidst blessing.

Seek God continuously.

VerseD: 3 John 1:2

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
3 John 1:2, ESV

This is no prosperity gospel teaching. It is a prayer that as we pursue Christ we remain or get healthy, but not a guarantee. That only comes at the resurrection.

VerseD: Jeremiah 33:3

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
Jeremiah 33:3, ESV

Do not merely test God. He says to earnestly seek Him, and, when you call to Him in faith believing Jesus is His Son who died for you, He will answer in ways you do not know.

Walk with Him. Talk with Him.
