He who, with all his heart, goes after what is good is searching for grace; but he who is looking for trouble will get it. Proverbs 11:27
He who diligently seeks good seeks [God’s] favor, but he who searches after evil, it shall come upon him.
Proverbs 11:27 (Amplified)
This scripture really spoke to me this yesterday. What are you seeking in your life right now? The word is very clear about what we should be seeking. “Seek good“, the word tells us. You are not being selfish if you seek good. A lot of us would feel guilty about seeking good but there is no need to feel guilty. The first translation says you are seeking for grace when you seek for the good and the second translation says you are seeking God’s favor when you seek the good!!!
I want God’s favor in my life and I want His grace! Do you??
It can’t be that easy you say. Yes it can and yes it is. Don’t fall into the trap of being “realistic”. The next part of that verse says, “but he who is looking for trouble will get it”. It’s that simple! If you seek trouble it will come upon you!!!
If you want to fail you will fail.
If you want to be poor you will be poor.
If you want to be sick you will.
What are you looking for??? Why don’t you seek good? Trust the word of God. I am not bringing a new thing. This is not my idea. I am just showing you what the word says!!!! The word is saying seek good. You may have your reasons for not seeking good but just do it.
We live in a broken world and it has killed the hope in us. We have been hurt so badly that we have adapted. We expect failure, we expect disappointment, we expect brokenness but God wants us to see and live on another level. He wants us to get up when we fall. He wants us to be able to see victory when we fall!!!! He wants us to have hope. And that happens when we seek the good!!!
So seek good things to happen to you. Expect that breakthrough, expect God to answer your prayers. I am speaking to me as well. Let us seek good always!!!!
God is good indeed!!!! Let us thank Him for his grace towards us…
