How to Become a Bible Seeker

bible seeker

There are different levels in God ( e.g. the Outer Court of the Tabernacle, the Inner Court, and The Most Holy Place) and this level ( becoming a bible seeker) is not for the faint of heart.

To grow great heights in God will need determination and dedication. No longer can 5 minutes or 10 minutes of prayer be enough. We must begin to really seek God for his glory to be revealed in our lives.

So, enter at your own will.

We are taking this a notch higher!


Matt 6: 33 KJV

But seek ye first the kingdom of God,

and his righteousness

and all these things shall be added unto you


In Matthew, Jesus told us not to simply be acquainted with God or have knowledge of His Word, but to seek after the Kingdom of God. And what I aim for. The Kingdom.

I have grown past being satisfied with just Sunday worship: I want to see God!  I want the real truth of who He is to be revealed to me.  I want the love that the saints of God had in the bible; and the peace that literally passes all understanding.

If Moses, was able to see the face of God, then I want that too and even more!

That’s what I need; and I am going after it.

It’s a different walk when you mean business with Jesus.

It changes everything.

Will you join me?

Mind you, this journey is going to be a little rough, so you must ...

Put some effort into seeking

When someone seeks after an object, this simply means that it cannot be easily seen by the eyes or easily found. It is hidden out of sight. Right?

So in order to find what you are searching for, there must be some kind of determination and diligence on the seeker's part.

Have you ever tried to find something you've misplaced?  You'll literally turn your home upside down and would not rest until you've found what you were searching for. Am I correct?

The same thing applies for seeking after God. Do not stop until you find what your heart longs after. Do not stop until you've reached the place in God that you yearn to reach; and even then, still do not stop, because there is still so much more to attain.

Seeking God is not about convenience. We should not have to 'find' time for God but 'make' time for everything else! He should be the number 1. But that is honestly not always the case.

Seeking should not be a task but a pleasure

When we begin to really seek after God, it will light a fire of 'Desire' within us. This makes seeking not a task but a pleasure. We will crave him more and more. This desire creates the 'Drive' in our hearts to get the job done.

What does seeking really involve?

The Hebrew word for Seek, actually means

  • to aim at or strive after
  • to desire (to have a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen)
  • to endeavor (try hard to achieve something)
  • inquire (to ask for information about something. To conduct a formal investigation)

Wow! Such a strong message lies within this one word 'seek'. So now we realize that God is not asking us just to become familiarized with information about him, No!

He wants us to strive and search and inquire after him, with a strong feelings of longing. He want us to become a Bible Seeker.

You are not alone in the seeking

Here's a list of bible seekers that searched after God with their whole heart:

  • Enoch was a bible seeker
  • Abraham was one too
  • Moses was a bible seeker
  • And so should you

Ha! I just made that poem up on the spot.

There are many bible seekers

Back to the bible we go:

  • Daniel: seeked God through prayer and fasting that angels visited him with messaged regularly
  • Paul: lived in the desert areas for 3 years of his ministry seeking after God
  • John the Baptist: dwelled in desert regions seeking after God
  • John: was thrown on the isle of Patmos for his testimony and there Christ himself was revealed to him.
  • And there are more: Jacob, Elijah, Isaiah, Ezekiel ...

This list is endless! They were all not satisfied. God gave them a promise and they held on to that promise and would not let go, like Jacob, until he blessed them!

Part 1: God's promises for a bible seeker

That if you seek Him, you will find Him

Jeremiah puts it so sweetly:


Jeremiah 29:13 KJV 

And ye shall seek me, 

and find me,

when ye shall search for me with all your heart


God promised his children that we will find him, once we seek him with our whole hearts. He will not hide himself from us. He will show up.

This is a promise I hold dear: that when I seek him, I will find him ..him whom my soul loves; I WILL FIND HIM.

Part 2: What should a bible seeker seek?

The Kingdom

I pause here with a very important tip:

Never take any word in the bible for granted. Every word has a meaning and a purpose for being there.


Matthew 6: 33 KJV

But seek ye first the kingdom of God,

and his righteousness;

and all these things shall be added unto you


For spiritual growth, Jesus told us EXACTLY what to seek, to get EXACTLY what we want. He was specific when he said that we should seek ; 'the Kingdom of God'.

Have you ever noticed that before? ... Jesus was very specific ...Seek after the Kingdom of God.

So What is the Kingdom of God?

Romans 14: 17 KJV

The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink; 

but righteousness,

peace and joy in the Holy Ghost

1 Corinthians 4:20 KJV

For the Kingdom of God is not in word,

but in power'

The Kingdom of God is Righteousness,  Peace, Joy,  and Power that can only be attained through the Holy Ghost.

Jesus commanded us to seek after the Kingdom of God, FIRST. So in actuality he was saying :

  • seek after Righteousness, First
  • seek after Peace, First
  • seek after Joy, First
  • seek after the Holy Ghost, First
  • seek after his power, First

This is some Powerful Stuff!

Make God's righteousness, peace, joy, his power, and the attainment of Holy Ghost the number one priority in your life,  and 'all these things shall be added unto you'

Part 3: Then all These Things Shall Be Added Unto You


What things?

One of my first questions, when I read this verse, was 'what things will be added unto me if I seek God's Kingdom first?'

I found the answer!

It's in the previous verses of this same chapter. If you read the previous verses you will realize that Jesus was speaking to the issues of today.

Presently in the 21st century everyone is worried  about tomorrow. About their job, food, mortgage, financial worries and the list goes. Jesus is speaking to us in Matthew 6: 25. He says

Take no thought ( do not worry) about your life

  • what you will eat
  • what you will drink
  • what ye shall wear

Jesus admonished us to build our faith; the same God that takes care of the fowl of the air and the grass of the field will take care of us as well, for he knows what we have need of even before we ask .

So what is all 'these things that shall be added unto you', if you seek the Kingdom of God first? Everything.

  • Everything that you need for survival.
  • Everything that you are concerned about.
  • Every need that has to be met.
  • Every need that had been met and more.
  • Every desire of your life.

If you align yourself to the Will and purpose of God by seeking first the Kingdom of God then everything will be added unto you because all things belongs to God.

And if you walk in his Will, He cannot do anything but fulfill his promises found in his Word.

My Oh My, how this is getting mighty sweet!

And one thing God cannot do is lie. He means exactly what he says.

So this means then, that as a bible seeker our priorities have to be adjusted a little ( or maybe a lot).

No more shall we 'try to find time for God' in our busy schedules. We will instead put the Kingdom of God first in our lives and we will seek diligently after Him. And everything - I mean everything - that we desire will be added to us by God.

10 Tips For Bible Seekers


Implementing one or more of these tips can change your lives drastically.

  1. Make a daily schedule and separate yourself to earnestly pray for at least 30 minutes daily. Does this sound impossible? Then begin where you are with the amount that you can, and work your way up.
  2. Use a few minutes for prayer and bible reading during your lunch time.
  3. Seek him before any major and minor decision in your life, and after the decision has been made, seek him some more.
  4. Schedule a Vacation Day for God. Prepare your kids for school as usual, and designate that time away from your Job as a time to seek after God through prayer, bible study, bible reading or even fasting.
  5. Driving in your vehicle - play gospel music, sermons, or spiritual uplifting messages. It is important to keep your mind centered on God
  6. Try praying around the clock. Set your watch to alarm every hour as a reminder for you to whisper a quiet prayer in your heart as you go through the day
  7. Have Morning Family Devotions before going to work: ( song, prayer, bible reading.) If this is too difficult to get done: make it a weekend ritual instead.
  8. Schedule an hour for personal bible study time every week. To maximize on your bible study, buy a CD concerning what you are studying and play it in your vehicles during that week.
  9. Separate 1 day, or a week end, for prayer and fasting.  Make preparation in advance and all the arrangements necessary, to reduce interruptions.
  10. Designate a time for quiet meditation on the things of God. Take a walk in the park; at the sea side or quietly at home in your room.
