The bible is filled with scriptures on seeking God. To seek Him is our greatest privilege. It is in the seeking and the finding where we encounter our greatest treasure, Jesus Christ Himself. As you read through these scriptures, don’t be in a hurry, take some time to really ponder what it is you are seeking today.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)

Look to the Lord and his strength;1 Chronicles 16:11 (NIV)
seek his face always.
You, God, are my God,Psalm 63:1 (NIV)
earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
where there is no water.
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 (NIV)
