Last week I began discussing the topic of healing a broken heart. The Bible gives us a roadmap to healing from many different types of brokenness. The first step is to humble yourself. When we humble ourselves, we are free to truly worship the Lord. It is then that we give full control over to Him and we trust that He is in control, regardless of the pain.
This week I want to discuss step two: To Seek His Face
How do we seek Him?
There are three key ways to seek God.
ONE: READ OUR BIBLES
God has already said everything we need to hear to prophets, disciples and apostles long before our time. They marvelously documented his words and directives.
Every time we read our bible, something new jumps off the pages as if it was brand new.
When you read your bible, I would suggest you journal. Write down anything that moves your spirit or mind such as things that are amazing to you, things that are confusing. Write down things that make you happy or sad. Journaling makes your journey so much more personal.
TWO: MEET WITH OTHER BELIEVERS
Often, God speaks through other people for various reasons. Sometimes it’s because we are tuning him out. Other times God uses other people and their passion to inspire us and change us. Seeking Godly people is the same as seeking God.
Fast wholeheartedly. Biblical fasting is a way to take our eyes off earthly things in order to focus more on the Lord. It doesn’t have to be a sacrifice of food, especially for those with health issues. Fasting can be giving up screen time in order to pray or spend time in the word. This is not meant to be a “one and done” event. The bible indicates that fasting is a lifestyle of serving. Serving God as well as others.
Isaiah 58 (don’t fast just to fast)
7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe him,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness [a] will go before you,
and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
