Job 5:8 (NKJV)
8 “But as for me, I would seek God, And to God I would commit my cause—
God wants us to be committed to Him. We see here one of Job’s friends was thinking Job’s troubles came from sins. Job was under attack. That is why we need to seek God and allow Him to show us what is happening, where we are to go, how we are to follow, why we go through tough times and seek when He desires to show us. God has a plan in all that occurs.
His plans go deeper than what we see, so we need to seek Him everyday and all through the day. Seek and be committed to His love. If we spent more time asking Him questions instead of spending time questioning ourselves, we would begin to see His will for us. Too many times we seek Him in trouble only and do not talk to Him at all times. God wants to show us His ways and when we are committed we will learn to come to Him and recognize His direction.
So, learn to love Him, to listen to Him, and to lean not on your own understanding. His love goes beyond measure so seek Him and see all that He has for you so that His will, will be done in your walk with Him.
Father thank You for Your love for me. You know the plans You have for me so help me to seek You in all areas of my life. Please forgive me for my lack of commitment at times, my lack of trust at times, and for my not being patient enough to wait for answers. Your timing is always perfect, and You know the direction You have for me. So please guide me as I seek Your will.
In Your Loving Son’s Holy Name, I pray, Amen.
