I am currently working on a short book that talks about Seeking, specifically seeking God and finding him, as is promised in the Bible. I was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts in general, or specifically?
I'm going to be doing more biblical study on the terms and how it applies to/in Scripture. So far I have a long list to look through, thanks to the Nave's Topical Bible. It lists a LOT of entries under the category Seekers.
I find it interesting and in a way very creative that, for the most part, God has set up a system where he can be found only if you desire to look. It seems to allow for the right amount of free will for all of us. Of course, it only lasts for a hundred years or so (usually less) so our job is to seek while the offer is there, I think. But I'm interested to hear if anyone else has opinions about it.
The last chapter of the book I plan to cover "seeking and not finding." That is to say, people who say or believe they "sought with all their hearts" but still did not find God. (I do not want to make brash assumptions or arrogant criticisms, but I must admit most people who I have spoken with personally and make that claim tend not to know much about actual Christianity, so while perhaps in their view they DID seek, I am not sure what they did while seeking if they didn't even open the Bible and understand it. But I'm sure there are other cases where someone sought more thoroughly than that.)
