Seeking God

[not counterfeits or illusions]

"If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You."

"One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.
 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion...
He shall set me high upon a rock."
Psalm 27:3-5

"If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you."
Matthew 7:7

O God, You are my God; early will I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You
In a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.
So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory.
Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
Thus I will bless You while I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
My soul shall be satisfied...
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.
Because You have been my help,
Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
My soul follows close behind You;
Your right hand upholds me."
Psalm 63:1-8

And will magnify Him with thanksgiving....
The humble shall see this and be glad;
And you who seek God, your hearts shall live."

And let those who love Your salvation say continually,

"But as we have been approved by God  to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God  who tests our hearts.

"O Lord, Teach me to seek you,

and reveal yourself to me when I seek you.

For I cannot seek you unless you first teach me,
nor find you unless you first reveal yourself to me."

Ambrose of Milan, (340 - 397 AD)

This faithful saint battled deception in the early church. He led believers in a firm stand against the heretical beliefs promoted by the current emperor of the Roman empire,  Constantius (son of Constantine the Great).
