Why Turn to God?

 

How much do you know God?

Have you the heart to know Him?

To seek Him?

To love Him, with all your heart?

Here are verses showing what we can expect from sincerely seeking God:


1. God is our safe haven.

10 The name of the Lord 

is a strong tower: 

the righteous runneth 

into it, 

and is safe.

Proverbs 18:10 (King James Version)


2. God heals our land.

14 If my people, 

which are called 

by my name, 

shall humble themselves, 

and pray, 

and seek my face, 

and turn 

from their wicked ways; 

then will I hear 

from heaven, 

and will forgive 

their sin, 

and will heal 

their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (King James Version)


3. God frees us from captivity.

11 For I know the thoughts 

that I think 

toward you, 

saith the Lord, 

thoughts of peace, 

and not of evil, 

to give you 

an expected end.

12 Then shall ye call 

upon me, 

and ye shall go 

and pray 

unto me, 

and I will hearken 

unto you.

13 And ye shall seek me, 

and find me, 

when ye shall search 

for me 

with all 

your heart.

14 And I will be found 

of you, 

saith the Lord: 

and I will turn away 

your captivity, 

and I will gather you 

from all the nations, 

and from all the places 

whither I have driven you, 

saith the Lord; 

and I will bring you again 

into the place 

whence I caused you 

to be carried away 

captive.

Jeremiah 29:11-14 (King James Version)


4. God shows us great and mighty things.

3 Call unto me, 

and I will answer thee, 

and show thee 

great 

and mighty things, 

which thou 

knowest not.

Jeremiah 33:3 (King James Version)


5. God provides everything we need.

33 But seek ye first 

the kingdom of God, 

and his righteousness; 

and all these things 

shall be added 

unto you.

Matthew 6:33 )King James Version)


6. God gives us the wisdom we need.

5 If any of you lack wisdom, 

let him ask of God, 

that giveth to all men 

liberally, 

and upbraideth not; 

and it shall be 

given him.

James 1:5 (King James Version)


7. God rewards the diligent.

6 But without faith 

it is impossible 

to please him: 

for he 

that cometh 

to God 

must believe 

that he is, 

and that he is 

a rewarder 

of them 

that diligently 

seek him.

Hebrews 11:6 (King James Version) 


8. God gives us contentment.

10 The young lions do lack, 

and suffer hunger: 

but they that seek the Lord 

shall not want 

any good thing.

Psalm 34:10 (King James Version)


9. God gives us strength to keep going.

29 He giveth power 

to the faint; 

and to them 

that have no might 

he increaseth strength.

30 Even the youths 

shall faint 

and be weary, 

and the young men 

shall utterly fall:

31 But they that wait 

upon the Lord 

shall renew 

their strength; 

they shall mount up 

with wings 

as eagles; 

they shall run, 

and not be weary; 

and they shall walk, 

and not faint.

Isaiah 40:29-31 (King James Version)


10. God gives us rest and comfort.

28 Come unto me, 

all ye that labour 

and are heavy laden, 

and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke 

upon you, 

and learn 

of me; 

for I am meek 

and lowly in heart: 

and ye shall find rest 

unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, 

and my burden 

is light.

Matthew 11:28-30 (King James Version)
