From the Pastor’s heart
Deu 4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
The preposition “if” in the verse denotes a condition of the heart of man. Not everyone is seeking God because they are busy with other pursuits in life. Therefore, seeking God first is a choice which must be a pursuit of the heart and soul. Furthermore, some have sought God in a lazy manner. Half hearted pursuits of God have ended in frustration and discouragement for many.
On the other hand, some have not sought God but found Him. This seems unfair in the light of a condition placed on us in finding Him, which is, to seek Him to find Him. Why should some not seek but find? I think they were seeking God but were waiting to be found of Him because they found themselves in desperate trouble in the process of seeking Him.
