What are we to seek the Lord for?

That’s a great question. I’ve found

7 things in scripture that we are to seek the Lord for

1. His Kingdom and His Righteousness

Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 13:44–46 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field. Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!

2. His Salvation and Eternal Life

Acts 17:27 His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him — though he is not far from any one of us.

3. His will to be done

Daniel 9:2–3 During the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, learned from reading the word of the Lord, as revealed to Jeremiah the prophet, that Jerusalem must lie desolate for seventy years. Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes.

4. His Wisdom and understanding

Proverbs 2:3–5 Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God.

5. His Guidance and Direction

Proverbs 3:6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

6. His Strength and His Presence

Psalm 105:4 Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually!

7. His Peace (Deliverance from Fears)

Psalm 34:4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.

But ultimately, what are we seeking when we seek the Lord?

This answer might surprise you, that is until you experience it for yourself.

When we seek His Kingdom and His Righteousness, His salvation and and Eternal life, His will to be done, His wisdom and understanding, His guidance and direction His strength, and His peace — what are we seeking?

It’s a metaphor that’s common in scripture:

We are seeking His face.

His face is understood to represent His intimate presence.

Psalm 105:4 Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always

Psalm 27:8 My heart said, “Seek His face.” Your face, O LORD, I will seek

Psalm 27:4 One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.

You were created to walk with God in the garden in the cool of the day. One day you’ll be with him in paradise. Today you are meant to seek His face always, you’re meant to seek him and find him when you seek him with all of your heart, and you’re meant to seek him and live!
