SCRIPTURE: I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. Proverbs 8:17-18
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Those who seek God early are privileged carriers of His Presence.
The Scripture makes it clear that it is profitable to seek God early. Our anchor scripture says that those who seek God early will find Him. That is a major profit.
Now, in addition to finding Him, we will explore those things that you stand to benefit when you seek Him early.
1. Access to counsel, sound wisdom and understanding. To seek God early is to be positioned in counsel, sound wisdom, and understanding (Proverbs 8:14).
2. Access to royalty, authority, and ruler-ship (Proverbs 8:15). If you can access God early, you will stand as a king; you will stand in royalty and authority.
3. Access to supernatural strength (Proverbs 8:14). When you seek God early, you connect supernatural strength.
4. Access to Divine Presence. Those who seek God early are privileged carriers of His Presence (Proverbs 8:17).
5. Access to supernatural abundance and supplies (Proverbs 8:18). That is, God will show you something that will take you off the realm of poverty and scarcity. If you seek God early, you are not permitted to seek gold the way others seek gold.
6. Access to honour and dignity (Proverbs 8:18). When you come close to God, He clothes you with honour and dignity; you cannot be a victim of shame and reproach.
7. Access to righteousness and uprightness. You become more conscious of living through the day in His uprightness (Proverbs 8:20).
Beloved, this seven-fold package shall be your portion as you consistently seek God early.
Remember this: Those who seek God early are privileged carriers of His Presence.
1. Arise early in the morning and seek God; endeavour to attend the early morning service where it is available.
2. Make demands on the seven benefits of seeking God early mentioned in the text as you seek God early.
