The Journey of a Seeker

I happened to talk with someone yesterday that I used to know quite well. We had bumped into each other a couple of times, but we had not actually held a conversation in over a year. Our paths had gone in different directions as they do often times throughout the course of life. Hers, leading to a second year of Bible college, and mine, well I wasnít really sure. It seemed that I was just doing the things necessary to exist in life without a definite purpose.
So, we began to discuss the events of the past year. I went on and on about the changes the Lord had made in my life and the people whom I had encountered very briefly yet learned life-long lessons. I talked of the miracles I had seen, the revelations of the Word that the Lord had given, the prophecies that were spoken over me, and the many doors that were opened by His mighty hand. Then I asked about her life over the past year. As she tried to recall the highlights, sadly, there were not many. Now, knowing this person as well as I did before, it was obvious that she had returned home in nearly the same if not exactly the same place that she was before she left. Still unsure of the calling on her life, the direction in which she was going from here, and just what she needed to do. Still using others as an excuse for the lack of progress toward her future, as if she were dealt an unusually unfair hand in life. We finished our conversation and with a disheartened goodbye, I hung up the phone.
Thinking about all of the things she had said, I became saddened and disappointed to hear that this is how the year had turned out for her. I understand that life is not always fair and I too had many setbacks, hindrances, and trippings, yet there was still so much growth and provision that the Lord had allowed along the way. So, I went into prayer and I asked the Lord why it had been so different for the two of us. And it wasnít a thunderous audible voice, but even still it was the voice I have come to know so very well saying, ďBecause you sought Me.Ē
Matthew 7:7 says ďAsk, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:Ē God only promises things to the seekers. He doesnít reveal things to those who are not searching because to them it would be worth little to nothing. The funny thing is that overall; I didnít even know what I was searching for. Itís at that point that the best thing one can do is search for the greatest finding ever... the face of God! Somewhere along the way we will absolutely find things we have never even dreamed of. It is NOT our responsibility to find, itís our responsibility to seek. Itís His responsibility to get in our pathway and reveal the findings. One thing that I know now is that finding is not a destination as I once thought it to be, however it is an ongoing process. We will never complete the journey of searching here on this earth. We will never come to the end of all that God is or all that He has in store for a willing soul seeking. And when it seems that the seeking is to no avail, be assured, thatís when God is moving the most in your heart and in your life.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
