Stepping Stones: Why We Search

Stepping Stones: Why We Search
September 24, 2009 Lighthouse Network

Transformational Tip
When you are searching for your keys, it is because they are not in the right place…lost. When we are in Washington, DC and searching for the Washington Monument, the monument isn’t lost, we are lost. We search for the Truth not because it is lost, we search for the Truth because we are lost. We were designed by God to search and find Him. Our search is usually for comfort, peace, love, happiness, being valued…all things God can and wants to give us. Unfortunately, instead of one-stop shopping, going to God for everything, we search in many other places and things for the desires of our heart. We try to find relief at work, computer, food, relationships, kids, our grown-up toys, getting ahead, but we are looking in the wrong places.…we search because we are lost. God isn’t lost, He is in the same place all the time…you’ll find Him in His word, thru prayer, and orchestrating your circumstances to direct you back on track to Him. Where is your searching leading you? Let the word of God be submerged into your mind and spirit; “Seek and you will find” “I am the way, the truth and the life”
Today, If you are searching for anything other than His Truth…it’s time for a route correction. Identify what you are searching for, and where instead of God you are trying to find it.

Dear Father,
I have been searching my entire life Lord…but I have been searching in the wrong places. My searching has led me to some very bad decisions which caused pain and suffering for me and for those I love. I thank You Father for the lighthouses you have brought into my life. For those who have helped guide me step by step to You. I thank You for the new focus of my search. I search for You Lord, for a deeper and deeper relationship with You. I pray Father for the Stepping Stones community that they too may focus their search toward the Truth…toward You Father. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ whose Truth became flesh, and all God’s people said, – AMEN!

The Truth
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8
Then the woman said to Elijah, “Now by this I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in your mouth is the truth.”
1 Kings 17:24
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14
