Seek Him by prayer and worship

June 14th, 2010

I was reading Deuteronomy chapter 4 the other morning. When I got to verse 29 I had to pause and reflect.

It says, “But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul”.

As I reflected I really wanted to understand what God meant by seek. How did He want me to seek Him? This caused me to look at the Hebrew word for seek that was used in the passage. It was “baqash” (baw-kash).

When you look up the meaning it says to search out by any method; but specifically in worship or prayer. It also has implications of striving after or to ask, beg, beseech, desire, enquire, get, make inquisition, procure.

I found it interesting to note that the same word “baqash” was used in Jeremiah 29:11-13 where it says to seek Him and we will find Him when we seek with all of our hearts.

If you want to find God today. Seek Him by prayer and worship and seek Him with all of you heart. He promises to be found by you.

God Bless,
