Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
God says He loves them who love Him. What a great promise. If we love God, He shows us His love in return. But wait, there is another promise here also. It says, “those that seek me early shall find me.” So, exactly what does God mean when He says, “early?”
Early In Life? When is the right time to be saved? RIGHT NOW! Today is the right time to seek God’s forgiveness. Is this early in life? Well, today is earlier than tomorrow. God can and does give blessings to all, but the longer we know Him the more opportunities He has to bless us.
Early In The Day? I believe that if you begin your day with God, you will have a much better day. Let Him speak to you out of His Word and guide you with His wisdom. It just makes sense to seek Him early since He already knows what the day holds in store for you.
Early In The Week? Yes. Acts 20:7 says, “And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached…” Early in our Church History the Bible says that believers gathered on the same day Jesus had risen from the tomb. 1 Corinthians 16:2 says, “Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store…” The Church then continued this practice as we do today. The first day of the week is Sunday. We should be in church seeking God and His wisdom on The Lord’s Day. This would be early in the Week.
Why, because He shows love to those who love Him and if you seek Him early in life, early in the day, and early in the week, He says you will find Him.
If you do not know Christ, today is the day to ask Him into your heart. If you do, meet with Him early in the day and be sure to attend His Church this Sunday. (All the Services if possible.) After all it is HIS DAY, not just HIS MORNING.
