Those Who Look Will Find Me

17 I love those who love me, and those who look for me will find me. –Proverbs 8:17

This is a promise from God. He doesn’t make promises lightly. God keeps His promises. He promises this kind of thing again and again within the Holy Bible. There are several verses that tell us this is the case.

 

 

God assures us that those who look for God will find Him. This has been the case in my life and the lives of millions of others.

What could prevent us from finding God if we were diligently looking for Him and couldn’t find Him? The bible tells us that there are several things that could “hinder” our search for God.

Hindrances to seeking God:

Unrighteousness Hos 10:12-13 See also Isa 59:1-2

Pride Ps 10:4 See also 2Ch 26:16-18

Trusting in human resources Isa 31:1 See also 2Ch 16:12; Hos 5:13-15

Idolatry Zep 1:4-6 See also Ro 1:21-23

Superficial religion Am 5:5-6 See also Isa 58:1-9

Seeking God through occult practices is forbidden

1Ch 10:13-14 See also Lev 19:31; Lev 20:6; Dt 18:10-12; 1Sa 28:4-20; Ac 16:16-18

Have you been looking for God?

God isn’t hiding, nor is He some great mystery. He wants to be found by all who are sincerely seeking Him. You can actually know God.

 29But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. –Deuteronomy 4:29
