Seems simple enough:
OBEY God’s laws
+ SEEK Him with all your heart
Thing is, we have to be careful to be sure we understand God’s law. Too often I have listened to people and accepted what they say God’s law is without checking it out for myself.
That’s where that second part of the equation comes in: seeking Him.
We simply must make Him the source of all answers. God has promised that if we will seek Him with our whole heart, He will allow us to find Him. What a deal!
When we spend time in the Bible, reading and asking God questions about what we’ve read, we’re seeking. When we are relentless in learning Truth, we are seeking Him (John 14:6). When we do what we’ve learned He says, we’re obeying.
Bottom line: if you want joy to fill your life, choose to obey and seek God. That’s it. No long, drawn-out plan.
Just obey and seek.
Let’s start today.
