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  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.

Many Christians actions have became that of the world. They listen to the music they listen too. They  dance and its not inspired by the Holy Spirit because the music is of the secular world and the Holy Spirit has no part of the world neither should those who profess to be Christians. 

God has left a manual for Christians to read. It gives instructions of what a Christian should be like. He instructs us not to be partakers of the world (Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not, the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty – 2nd Corinthians 6:17-18).

We can’t be partakers of the world’s actions and think there will be no consequences of our actions. The God we worship and serve is holy and He wants His people to live a holy lifestyle daily. We were bought with a price, we don’t have ownership, we belong to God (For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s – 1st Corinthians 6:20).

When you purchase something it belongs to you, well, it’s the same way with God. He gave His Son to die for the sins of the world. Our sins are forgiven only because Jesus died for us to be reconciled to God. Jesus didn’t die for us to continue to practice sin. 

We can’t serve two masters either we’re going to serve God whole heartily or we will serve Satan whole heartily. We can’t serve Satan a little bit; he will take you further than you want to go and he will keep you longer than you want to stay.

Uzziah was only sixteen years old; when he read the instructions God have given the men of God to write on Scrolls, he followed after the instructions with his whole heart. Just as Uzziah sough after God, we as Christians must do the same thing. 

Yes sin is pleasurable, but a cost comes with it. We don’t know when death will knock on our door or when Jesus will come, but we must be ready; living a holy lifestyle in order to return with Him. Sin will not enter heaven, even if you just practiced it a little bit.

If you want to bypass hell, take time read and study the Bible, apply the instructions to your life daily. Decide you will serve God the way He has instructed us to live.
