Seek the Lord
And he sought God in the days of Zechariah who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper (2nd Chronicles 26:5). Uzziah was sixteen years old when he took the place of his father Amaziah as king. Uzziah’s desire was to do the things that was pleasing in the sight of God, because his desire was to please the Father, that did he seek after. As long as Uzziah sought the Lord, God made him to prosper. God hasn’t changed, He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Just as He blessed Uzziah, He will prosper those that seek to please Him. In today’s society, it’s a challenge to live a life that will be pleasing to the Lord. When you turn on the television, you have to almost cover your eyes because you don’t know what might just pop up on the screen. Shopping malls and restaurants have secular music playing while you’re shopping and eating, bringing back memories you shouldn’t be thinking on, or they are making your imagination more vivid. Hurtful actions or words are replaying in your mind like a tape recorder, rewinding the words or actions, but in order to seek the Lord, you don’t deny the hurt, but you forgive the one that brought on the hurt. To seek the Lord is doing the opposite of what your emotions and flesh is trying to influence you to do. Prosperity isn’t always about money, if you have peace in your mind and spirit, that’s God prospering you. In order to please the Lord, there must first be a desire to want to please Him, and as we desire too, He will give us the desires of our heart accompanied with blessings.
