Day 8

“Gideon was threshing wheat”
Judges 6:11-12

God cannot be contained in a box. It is sad that some see Him only as a Sunday morning ritual. Others see God as ‘up there’, meaning distant. We try to interpret God by theology, doctrine, experiences and sadly make pronouncements as to what position God takes on matters.

God refuses to be contained by man. He continually breaks out of our preconceived concepts of whom He is and where He is. Look at how He met many in scripture:

• Adam met with God while taking an evening walk;
• Abraham first met with God when he was with his family, and   another time when he was sitting near his tent;
• Jacob met God in a dream, and later in life through a night of        wrestling in prayer;
• Moses first met God while working as a herdsman;
• Joshua met with God just before battle;
• Gideon was working at threshing wheat;
• Elijah and Elisha were out farming;
• Peter while he was at work fishing;
• Nathanael was meditating under a tree;
• Matthew was at his tax collector’s job; and,
• Two men met God while walking home.

God is looking to meet with you and He will meet you wherever you are. He wants to talk with you. Are you looking for Him?

“For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: ‘I will live with them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.'”

2 Corinthians 6:16

Day 2

“That they should seek God”
Acts 17:27

Somehow, the grass is always greener elsewhere. We may be dissatisfied with any number of things that leads us to look for greener pastures. The problem is God has determined where we were born and our appointed times for one purpose, to seek Him in that place.

Our Father’s one great and overriding purpose is for us to have a growing relationship with Him that increases day by day. Our salvation is not an end unto itself, but a key to the door that opens to a life of fullness in Him. Where he put us is where we find Him. He has determined all of our days, but we attempt to determine our own direction without seeking Him first. We want to escape many things in life which are often the very opportunities He has given us to find and know Him. Oddly, we believe that negative events in our life should not be, yet scriptures show us a history of men and women maturing through adversity. Why? God has allowed it so that His glory is seen in us.

Paul tells us to be anxious for nothing, for the Lord is near. Peter tells us that we have been equipped with everything for life and godliness. Matthew records Jesus saying to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you. Instead of looking at what could be better, seek Him who will fulfill you in everything.
