Standing Rightly

Position is a function of place and time. It determines what you possess, actualize, attain, receive, among others. Humans are tripartite beings, this is made up of a spirit and a soul that are enclosed in a body. This is confirming the three folds existence of man; spirit, soul, and body. It implies that every human is a spirit, that possesses a soul and these two are enclosed in a body.

Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again- 1 Thess. 5:23NLT

This Scripture talks about getting ready for the return of Jesus Christ by making spirit, soul, and body blameless (making yourself blameless). This is further illustrated and for clarity purposes concerning the day of our Lord Jesus Christ, the perfect day.

who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ –      1 Cor. - 1:8 NKJV.

                                                                                               How do you seek God?

It has often been said that not all eyes that look actually see. Thus, looking is not a sufficient condition for seeing. Our position or where we are standing is a function of place and time.  

One of the reasons why God created humans is to worship Him, fellowship with Him, and have communion with Him.     

No wonder the Psalmist says;

As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God - Ps.42:1NLT

We must always seek God. Seeking and finding God is what gives peace, joy, and rest to the soul. Scripture makes it clear that it is not only the soul that is involved in seeking God, heart, and flesh are not left out. Our entire being must be involved in searching and seeking for God and His righteousness.

I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the LORD. With my whole being, body, and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God – Ps. 84:2 NLT.

How eager are you seeking Him and how soon do you want to receive Him?                                                            

Are you seeking Him with the whole of your heart or otherwise?   

But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul – Deut.4:29 AMP.

The ’how’ of your seeking will determine how serious you are. God wants us to seek Him with our ‘all’.

For thus says the LORD to the house of Israel: “Seek Me and live – Amos 5:4 NKJV.
