Dearly Beloved , I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Psalm 34:10 says, “The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.’’ From the above context we learn that this Psalm, was written by David at one of the very darkest days of his wanderings, and was living, in the hills with a band of outlaws. In such a situation one might have grumbled at God, But instead, his words were running over with gladness, and the Psalm begins ‘I will bless the Lord at all times, and His praise shall continually be in my mouth.’ Similarly here he avers, a great deal of what the world calls ‘good,’ that ‘they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.’ There were lions in Palestine in David’s time. He had often fought with one of them. Very likely they were prowling about the rocky mouth of the cave, and he weaves their howls into his psalm: By saying “ The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good.”
So, then, here are the two thoughts-the struggle that always fails and the seeking that always finds. The young lions take violent effort and struggle, and exercise supreme strength, with all their teeth and claws, yet ‘they lack, and suffer hunger.’ This statement suggests that the men whose lives are one long fight to hoard for themselves more and more of outward good, are living a kind of life that is often a failure or deception. A fierce struggle for material good is the true description of the sort of life that most of us live. There is no satisfaction or success ever to be won by this way of fighting and struggling and scheming and springing at the prey. No matter how soft is the mattress, if there is one tiny thorn sticking up through it all the softness goes for nothing. Thus we see that men count up their disappointments, and forget all their fulfilled hopes, count up their losses and forget their gains. They think less of the thousands of blessings that God has blessed them with rather than dote over the half- crown that they were cheated of.
Now, how do we ‘seek the Lord’? Our search of God, is search after the one who is near to us, and who delights in nothing but in pouring Himself into our heart, mind, our will and life. And if only our heart, mind, and life, are willing to accept Him. Then we find Him. We must seek Him by desire. Do you want Him? A great many of us do not. We seek Him by communion, by turning our thoughts to Him, amidst all the rush of daily life. We seek Him by obedience. And they who thus seek Him find Him in the act of seeking Him, just as certainly as if “ I open my eye I see the sun.’’ For He is always seeking us. ‘The Father seeks such to worship Him.’ For the Bible says, ‘Seek, and ye shall find.’ By seeking Him, we shall be sure to find everything in God. Hence look at the grand confidence, and the utterance of a life’s experience in these great words: ‘So, then, here are the two thoughts-the struggle that always fails and the seeking that always finds.
For those who seek God there will be no lacking in their life. I am sure you have gained confidence in the Living God while reading this message that when you desire to search for Jesus, then you can be rest assured that God will fulfill all the desires of your heart. May be until now things did not work the way you expected. But from today God changes the nothingness into abundance. Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank You so much for clearing all our doubts about seeking God. Through this message , You have taught us the great truth. Help us to apply it in our hearts and start seeking God. May we seek Him when He is found and not delay our search for Him. Teach us to realize that when we seek Him with our whole heart He will be found. And once we find Him then we will not lack any good thing. For He satisfies the longing soul and will abundantly bless our provision, and satisfy our need with bread. He makes peace in your borders and causes our sleep to be sweet. Thank You Jesus for all Your blessings. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
