Are you Looking or Seeking?

“And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”   Jeremiah 29:13 Seeking…looking…what’s the difference?   According to, the word “Look” means to turn your eyes towards something or to turn in some direction in order to see [a person, place or thing.] also states that the word “seek” means to go in search or to be in quest for a certain person, place or thing. There are many scriptures in the Bible referring to and using the word “seek” when talking about God, not many about “looking” for God.   This made me begin to ponder the difference.   One example that stands out in my memory is the account about David, a shepherd at the time, and Saul who was made King.   Saul who had all the external attributes to be King was “looking” for that position, but David on the other hand just a young shepherd that spent most of his time out in the fields and hills watching sheep and praising God was “seeking” for God’s will in his life
