Day 3 Whom do you seek?
Yesterday, we looked at those that did not seek God’s face. Take out your mirror again and look deep in your soul. Ask yourself, whom do I seek? Is it wealth, friends, the perfect body, a nice house, drugs, or a relationship where you feel loved? Over the years, I have sought most of these objects. We seek objects that others have hoping it will give us the peace we so desire. As humans, we are looking to fill a void but we tend to look in the wrong places. We cannot have true peace until our eyes are open to our creator. He is the only one that will give us that true peace and love.
Psalm 27:4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
Why does God want us to seek him? Does He tell us to seek Him? Being a child of God, you need to know how to follow His will and make decisions that reflect a godly life.

Read Acts 9
Take a minute to think about Paul. When he was known as Saul he still sought after Christ! Are you surprised? He was always seeking or in pursuit of God’s people. He was, in reality, keeping God close. He never went a day without hearing about God. Crazy, I know, right?? On the way to Damascus his drive took a different path. God was leading Saul on that dusty road to get him in a specific place, call his name and speak to him. Saul, now Paul, is seeking God in a different way. The same goes for us; before we are saved we are trying to fill that void. We just didn’t know it was leading us to the place where God would call our names and change our path. As a sinner, we are always seeking and in search of what will make us happy when the only thing that will give us peace and make us happy is seeking God’s face.
