Day 6: Seeking But Not Seeking – Finding God by the Grace of God

Day 6 meditation reveals how finding God is only by the grace of God.

There is an amazing paradox that is largely unknown by most Christians in the seeking of God by the believer. Jesus indicates this mystery of finding God when He said,

I thank thee, 0 Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. . . And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. (Luke 10:21, 23-24)

There is something definitely mysterious in the eyes of Israel which see not and the ears which hear not which is revealed in day 6 meditation.

Day 6 meditation emphasizes an unique way of finding God

They perceived themselves to be as a nation the one, true seeker of God. Paul writes,

Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God, and knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law; and art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the bind, a light of them which are in darkness. (Rom. 2:17-19)

However, what they perceived was not how God saw them: “. . . All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people” (Rom. 10:21). They were hearing, but they were hearing amiss and even obstinate in their faulty hearing. In fact, Paul adds,” . . . Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for . . .” (Rom. 11:7). They actively sought God, but somehow in their seeking they did not find him. They misunderstood the unique Christian principle that the seeking of God must be by the grace of God.
