In a previous blog, I asked the question who is God to me? This was followed by a long list of who God is. He is my Saviour, healer, provider.....

 

As I meditated on seeking God this morning, the thought came to me that God cannot not be compartmentalized. If He is not Lord of all, He is not Lord at all. He is Lord God all mighty. He is the all powerful God. We cannot say that He is God of our health but not God of our heart or our finances. It is only when we seek God as God, that we will see Him as God. Many times we underestimate His power. We think some things are too big or too small for God. God is appealing to us not to insult His souverinty! He is God of all. He wants us to surrender everything to Him. He says 'I am the Lord God Almighty, besides me there is no other.' In Genesis 17:1, the Lord declares, 'I am God Almighty. Isaiah says in Isaiah 47:4, 48:2, 51:15, 54:5 'The Lord Almighty is His name'

 

Some times we limit God and by so doing unknowingly find 'alternate gods'. In the Old Testament, we see there were different Gods. Some cultures today have the same. In 1 Kings 18, Baal was the God of fire. We hear of the God of light, wind, fertility and thunder.

 

There are cases when some people have waited on God for so long, that they shift their dependence and sometimes decide to do God'd work for Him. Sometimes, we become our own God. Isaiah 55:8 states 'For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,' declares the Lord. Some Christians go to church on Sunday and go to the witch doctors, the 'medicine men' for things they think God cannot do or things they feel He is taking too long to handle.

 

In Hebrews 11, we find people who trusted God as Lord God Almighty, who are referred to as people of faith. What we believe is what we do. When we run from our enemies, we are showing how weak our God is. When we start depending on people and not God for our wellbeing, we show how insufficent our God is. David says in Psalm 62:5, 'My soul waiteth patiently on you O Lord for my help comes from you'

 

Troubles, circumstances, stress and pressures make us lose focus of who God is. Problems with work, family life, ministry, finances, children marriage or being single, if not taken to the Lord in prayer can cause us to shift our focus. Psalm 55:22 says 'cast your cares upon Him and He will sustain you'. Take your problems to the Lord and He will solve them for you. Seek Him regarding that which concerns you. 1 Peter 5:7 says 'cast your cares upon Him for He cares for you;' We have a God who cares for us; we seek a God who cares for us for He confirms this in Isaiah 43:2 'when you go through.....I will deliever you for I the Lord am with you to deliver you' say the Lord.

 

May we seek the Lord God Almighty who will never forsake us nor fail us because He created us for HIS glory. Deut 4:29 says 'You shall seek the Lord your God and you will find Him when you search for Him with all your heart and soul.
