Prepare Your Heart to Seek the Lord
2Ch 12:14 And he did evil, because he prepared not his heart to seek the LORD.
Nobody had the tools to seek the Lord like King Rehoboam. The book of Proverbs was written for his benefit, yet he forsook everything that was good, wise and holy.
The result was that he did evil and plunged the nation of Israel into wickedness and opened her up to foreign oppression.
We need to be sure to prepare our hearts to seek the Lord. We can do this by having daily devotions, being faithful in the Lord's house, praying incessantly, avoiding temptation, being filled with the Holy Spirit and having a teachable heart.
Coach John Wooden taught that it is what we learn after we know it all that counts the most.
We, as Christians, can never say we have arrived, we have no more preparation to make, no more learning to acquire. Every day it starts all over again.
So, make today a new day of preparing your heart to seek the Lord.
