It is pertinent that children of God develop the hunger and lifestyle to seek God. There is no need to postpone the action or to wait for a more convenient time to seek Him. This was why David wrote in Psalms 63:1; “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where there is no water”.
David was trying to say that there is no convenient time to seek God, that he will seek God even when the times are bad, he will still seek the Lord.
Another example we saw in the bible was when Haman made plans to annihilate the Jews. Mordecai, told his niece who was the Queen as at the time what was about to happen to the Jews and told her that if she refuses to do anything concerning his advice, that God will send them (The Jews) help but she would perish. Queen Esther didn’t go into panic or had any form of fear, rather she quickly told Mordecai to go and announce to the Jews that they are to fast for three days, both animals and humans alike, so that they may seek the face of God and enquire from Him what to do. It was after the fasting and prayers that she held a meeting with the King and God gave her favor before the King and her request was granted.
In the same vein, the times we are into are turbulent times, just like the bible told us, that in the last days, there will be perilous times. It is not a time to panic nor live in fear. It is not a time to start feeling self-pity. Even if you lost something very dear to you, it is not a time to start nursing the pain as though there is no hope. The face of God matters in life no matter what one is going through.
Make up your mind to seek the Lord like you have never done before and let no one or nothing, no matter the challenge stop you from seeking God’s face. Do not stop yourself by giving irrelevant excuses. The time is now!
