Seek the LORD

“I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears” (Psalm 34:4)

Being a Christian doesn’t change what we deal with. Being a Christian changes how we deal it.

Life is life.

As the writer of Ecclesiastes wrote so eloquently in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8:

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Such is life. The difference is how we respond to life.

The key is seeking the LORD. Don’t just think your way through things. Seek God and God’s will. In every situation, in times of joy and in uncertainty, seek the LORD.

He is our strength. He is our comfort. He is our deliverer. He is our Savior.

Seek the LORD.
