He has not forsaken them that seek Him.

Psa 9:10  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

What a mighty promise. The Lord never forsakes His own. Can you see how the Scriptures tell us that those who know His name and put their trust in God are those who seek the Lord? Knowing and trusting and seeking. The trinity of relationship with God. And for His part, the Lord never leaves us nor forsakes us. Now what does it mean to seek the Lord? It is one of those magnificent paradoxes. To know and yet to seek. And not just seek the Lord, but to seek Him with our whole hearts. With everything in us, we seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness. To seek the Lord with our whole hearts is to remove any and all obstacles that stand in our way. Fear must go, anxiety must vanish.

Do not be fooled saint, we have work to do. Obedience. Discipline. Responding. Abiding.Loving. Forgiving. Sacrificing.  Taking up our cross daily. Laying down our offenses. If you are the Lords you have been empowered to do all of that and more.  You have been empowered to possess that which was given to you, another mighty paradox. This is the work, to do the will of your Father in heaven. Those who are determined to walk with their whole hearts, they will bear the marks of such a pilgrimage. They will praise Him with everything that is in them. Not just on the high mountains of blessings but also and particularly in the depths of the deepest valleys of afflictions. They will testify of all His marvelous works to anyone who will want to listen, and also to those who don’t. They will be glad in the Lord and their joy will radiate from their countenance.

In all of that, in the presence of our glorious God, our fears and our anxieties perish. The destructive aspects of our characters are vanquished forever. And the Lord our God endures forever in their place. The Lord becomes to us a refuge in times of trouble. He is our ever present high tower and when trouble comes we run into it and we are safe. He has created in His children, a fragrant band of priests who are humbled and contrite. And He always hears the cries of the humble, and He dwells in High places with the broken and the contrite. The expectations of the poor in spirit shall not perish. We know the end of all things and we know that the nations and the powers that be are but men, but we serve the God who brings all men to their knees, one way or another, in the end. Will you praise Him today saints?
