If you seek Him....

This Scripture seemed very timely this morning with the overall state of our nation, the upcoming elections and even disunity between various denominations. We truly need to seek and move closer to God especially now we need to seek His heart and direction for upcoming elections we need to vote not based on party line or race or who is the best speaker, but on who is holding up the strongest Biblical values. And our churches need to get beyond their barriers held up by traditions of man and start rebuilding on the structure of love and relationship that was established by Jesus and the early apostles. If we aren't loving each other we are not preparing the way to present Gods kingdom to the lost. They are to know us by our love not our division.
THE SPIRIT of God came upon Azariah son of Oded. And he went out to meet Asa and said to him, Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: the Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him [inquiring for and of Him, craving Him as your soul’s first necessity], He will be found by you; but if you [become indifferent and] forsake Him, He will forsake you. Now for a long time Israel was without the true God, without a teaching priest, and without law. But when they in their trouble turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, and [in desperation earnestly] sought Him, He was found by them. And in those times there was no peace to him who went out now to him who came in, but great and vexing afflictions and disturbances were upon all the inhabitants of the countries. Nation was broke in pieces against nation, and city against city, for God vexed and troubled them with all sorts of adversity. Be strong, therefore, and let not your hands be weak and slack, for your work shall be rewarded. 2 Chronicles 15:1-7
