I recently heard it said “you can choose to see wonder, beauty and awe, and there is plenty to see. What you look for you will find.” Jesus said “ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” how profound a thought is this? as we act toward God the return will be in proper response. there needs to be an understanding that this asking, seeking and knocking is done with a heart that is transformed by God, one that lives in the light of the experience of supernatural love.
something that i have come to understand in the last year is that those who are in Christ, should live a life of balance, because the Gospel is a Gospel of balance. in Matthew 5-7 one of the largest recorded teachings of Jesus we see this being emphasized in each topic. as we live in balance, as week seek the Kingdom there is a great amount of beauty to been seen, wonder to behold awe to be had. we are given time on this earth to find joy in these things, but the joy will not come if we do not live in balance and seeking His kingdom to be established here and now.
as we move through this life we have to look for God where we are, because he is there. as we seek God we will see beauty we will have joy we will live in awe. as we seek to see God’s kingdom established we will find beauty, wonder and awe. our responsibility is to these things, it is to seek after the Lord that we might find his favor. in all of these things we have to live in freedom, enough freedom to open our eyes and see all that God has for us.
