Can God Be Found?

Can God Be Found?

2 Chronicles 15:3-4 NLT For a long time Israel was without the true God, without a priest to teach them, and without the Law to instruct them. [4] But whenever they were in trouble and turned to the LORD, the God of Israel, and sought him out, they found him.”

God makes Himself available to all who earnestly seek Him regardless of adverse circumstances. The above passage proves that God can be found even if there aren’t any true preachers around, and even if there aren’t any good Bibles around too. Israel was without priests and the law and still found God. How? They humbled themselves, repented, and cried out to God for help.

Jeremiah 29:13 NIV “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Notice God says He can be found ONLY when we seek Him wholeheartedly? He didn’t say it’s when we find that great preacher to listen to, or when we find the right church. He didn’t say, ‘Once you find the right Bible translations and study books you’ll find me.’ These things have their place but they’re not prerequisites to finding God.

Matthew 7:7-11 NET “ASK and IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU; SEEK and YOU WILL FIND; KNOCK and THE DOOR WILL BE OPENED for you. 7:8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 7:9 Is there anyone among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 7:10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 7:11 If you then, although you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”

Finding God; being connected to Him, is the greatest gift anyone can have. God is willing to fully give Himself to anyone who sincerely ask.

John 3:16 NIV “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that WHOEVER BELIEVES in him shall not perish but HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.”

Finding God means having ETERNAL LIFE! And as we have seen in Matthew 7:7-11 all we have to do is ask, seek, and knock. Yes, finding God is that simple. So don’t let anyone play tricks on you when it comes to finding God. Pray to Him; let Him know what you want. If your desires are honorable and sincere, and you seek Him with an undivided heart, HE WILL answer you and let you find Him:

Hebrews 11:6 NET “Now without faith it is impossible to please him, for the one who approaches God must believe that he exists and that HE REWARDS THOSE WHO SEEK HIM.”

Acts 17:27 NIV “God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though HE IS NOT FAR from any one of us.”

Psalm 9:9-10 KJV “The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. [10] And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.”
