They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob. Psalm 24:5-6
The world does not even attempt to look for God. Instead, the world is constantly trying to disprove God. They do not want anything to do with God and want to do everything on their own.
Most people feel as if they have earned what they have and are proud of it. All the blessings that they have in their life is because of their own personal hard work. As they take this view, they push God out of the picture. Along with pushing God out of the picture, all morality is gone with Him. All that is left is judgement of guilt in the end.
David talks about who can ascend God’s holy hill and what they will get there. Those who live for God will get a blessing and be vindicated–cleared of all guilt.
This was written at a time when the Israelites were under the Law. It was do or die. There was no grace being shown. David was looking forward to the Messiah that would come–Jesus.
In order to receive these blessings and being cleared of guilt, people have to seek God. The world is trying to get the blessings without seeking God. Believers seek for God and what He wants. It is not about self, but about God.
Seeking God is taking time to find out what God wants. How does God want a person to live? What does God want a person to do?
God wants all people to follow Jesus. Jesus provided the truth and way to get to the Father. He provided forgiveness of sins and the Holy Spirit to give power to live for Him. These are the blessings of seeking after God.
As with all people, you have made mistakes in sinning against God. Seeking Jesus will lead you to repent and follow Him. Jesus will clear you of all sin and give you the blessing of getting to the Father.
Seeking the things of this world will fail you. They are temporary and fade away.
Put seeking after God at the top of your priority list as to what to do each day. As you seek Him, all other things that you must do will fall into place correctly.
I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will seek after God with all of your heart; that you will find God each day; that you will know the blessings of serving God; and that you will know the forgiveness Jesus gives.
