Psalm Chapter 70 – Chronological

Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.

Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.

Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

  1. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    Let’s not find a reason to be unhappy or a reason to throw a pity party. Let’s rejoice in the Lord and magnify him for how great and glorious he really is. Thank him for breath and salvation, thank him for the revelation of Jesus name baptism and being filled with the Holy Ghost.

  2. 1 Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.

    Whenever we need deliverance there is a place we can run to and know it is there waiting for us and that place is the altar, the place where we can meet and encounter god and find new life every time we repent. Each and every day we should always remember the importance of our altar and the importance of maintaining it, and we should always to have the wood ready for sacrificing everyday.

  3. 1 Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.

    5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    Revelation 22:20
    He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    This is a prayer for liberation from the enemy. And the consequence from bad choices in life that they have caught up with them.

  6. Verse 4 MSG “Let those on the hunt for you sing and celebrate. Let all who love your saving way say over and over, “God is mighty!”” Well, if you haven’t noticed its “God Season” and you don’t even have to have a hunting license, just a loving heart and a singing celebration. My God is sooo good and sooo mighty. This reminded me of our memory verse for this quarter in Sunday School Daniel 2:20-22 KJV “Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.”

  7. Ps. 70 :4 [ amp] May all those who seek inquire of and for You ; and require You [ as their vital need] rejoice and be glad in You; and may those who love Your salvation say continually, Let God be magnified !
    This is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it.
    Matt. 7:7[ amp] Keep on asking and it will be given and you will find;
    Keep on seeking and you will find;
    Keep on knocking [ reverently] and [ the door ] will be opened to you.
    Keep on reading, studying, and searching him.
    There’s nothing my God can’t do.
    Live Jesus, Give Jesus.

  8. 5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    Stay humble

    David is King, he has gold and silver and rules over a nation and he speaks as if he has nothing because he knows without God he doesn’t . He cries out to God and claims that he needs to be delivered, as a man who has military at his disposal. David remained humble and still leaned on God when he had the opportunity to lean on other things because he knew that the Lord God would exalt him it was the only reason he was there

  9. 5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    I’m so thankful that in times of trouble I can call on the God of my salvation. He is there. He doesn’t bat an eye. Lord, You are Gracious and Holy. I bless Your Name.

  10. Thank you Jesus for today , another day to give him Glory . Praise God give him honor and respect

    But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, “God is great!” But as for me, I am poor and needy; please hurry to my aid, O God. You are my helper and my savior; O Lord , do not delay.
    Psalms 70:4‭-‬5

  11. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    The lesson here is how to pray. David is petitioning the Lord for help, but he follows up with praise to God then reinforces this with a humble statement.

  12. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    The lesson here is how to pray. David is petitioning the Lord for help, but he follows up with praise to God then reinforces this with a humble statement.

  13. Psalm 70

    1 Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.

    2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

    3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.

    4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

  14. Psalms 70 message
    1-3 God! Please hurry to my rescue!
    God, come quickly to my side!
    Those who are out to get me—
    let them fall all over themselves.
    Those who relish my downfall—
    send them down a blind alley.
    Give them a taste of their own medicine,
    those gossips off clucking their tongues.
    4 Let those on the hunt for you
    sing and celebrate.
    Let all who love your saving way
    say over and over, “God is mighty!”
    5 But I’ve lost it. I’m wasted.
    God—quickly, quickly!
    Quick to my side, quick to my rescue!
    God, don’t lose a minute.

    David’s prayer to God seems to be one of desperation
    He knows where his help comes from though and calls out to a God and declares even in the midst of this overwhelming moment to acknowledge how mighty God is .

    I Go to the Rock
    Where do I go when there’s no one else to turn to?
    Who do I talk to when no one wants to listen?
    Who do I lean on when there’s no foundation stable?
    I go to the Rock, I know He’s able, I go to the Rock

    I go to The Rock for my salvation
    I go to the stone that the builders rejected
    I run to the mountain and the mountain stands by me
    When the earth all around me is sinking sand
    On Christ, the Solid Rock, I stand
    When I need a shelter, when I need a friend,
    I go to the Rock

    He is mighty and He is faithful.

  15. So in Psalms Chapter 70 verses 1-5 it’s talking about how Jesus hasted to help me seek after my soul and then I was put to confusion then all those that seek rejoice and let love thy salvation shall be magnified then I am poor and then god helped me and my deliverer

  16. iLove the Kingdom of Jesus
    5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    God will help the humble. Notice the verse above. “Poor and needy” refer to someone who is humble, not necessarily who is broke and disgusted. God will help those who:

    *Seek God
    *Rejoice and be Glad
    *Love Salvation
    *Pray

  17. When we live for God we are not broke and disgusted. God supplies us and we are rich. Worrying about material things is for the lost. Thank you Jesus for supplying us with all our needs and sometimes our wants!

  18. Psalms 70:1 & 5
    1) MAKE haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O LORD.
    5) But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.

    So thankful that when I need God “NOW,” I don’t have to pray a long prayer, BUT all I have to do is cry out “JESUS,” and He is right there to Help and Deliver me.
    “O God, thou art my Help and my Deliverer!”

  19. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
    Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.
    Seeking God and his righteousness brings us everything we need. Seek him 1st!
    Luke 11:9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

  21. LIVE – GIVE JESUS
    LET GOD BE MAGNIFIED

    4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    WOW! What a WAKE UP call!

    The Kaleidoscope of HOPE is demonstrated here in 3 ways.

    1. Show them JESUS – Love HIS Salvation

  22. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    To many God is difficult to seek and find. The scripture states that we should find Him while he is near. That lets me know that Jesus is as close as the mentioning of his name. As I reach out to draw him near, He will wrap his loving arms around me. I will rejoice because He has me In the palm of his hands. It is up to us the let the world know how great and mighty Jesus is and we must show evidence of his goodness in our lives. If we live Jesus then it will be easier to show him to others.

    The more I seek you
    The more I find you
    The more I find you, the more I love you
    I wanna sit at your feet
    Drink from the cup in your hand
    Lay back against you and breath, feel your heart beat
    This love is so deep, it’s more than I can stand
    I melt in your peace, it’s overwhelming!

    Let us magnify him in the glory of our praise and worship.

  23. 70:4 let those that seek thee, rejoice and be glad
    In thee: and let such as love thy salvation
    Say continually , let God be magnify.
    ——
    👉🏼Those that seek thee….
    Those that love the Lord
    Those that want an ever ending relation ship with him
    Those whose the Lord is their strength and hope.
    I give God glory for his Holy Spirit( his promise) given to me.
    I would not want to know where I would be without Him in these days…..
    —-
    Rejoice, I say it again rejoice!!!!

  24. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    In all things God, be magnified. Continually, through the good and the bad, let Your Will be done and You be magnified!

  25. “Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord. Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭70:1-2‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    What I appreciate the most about this passage of scripture is David’s transparency. The word says that David was a man after Gods own heart. He was very real with God. He also sought God with all his mind and his heart. He expressed complete dependence on him. I feel that is what God desires, that we fully trust and depend on him with our every day needs.

  26. “But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭70:5‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭46:1-3‬ ‭KJV‬

    Keep praising Him in your times of need!

    Always know and trust that God will see you through it all❤️❤️❤️

  27. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    It is when we seek Him that we find joy!

    “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  28. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    We must never forget where Jesus brought us from or what He has kept us from. It would be so easy for our relationship with Him to become commonplace. Everyday we should magnify Him for the salvation that He brought to our lives

  29. 5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    Wait on the Lord, He is NEVER late, He is ALWAYS on time!!!! I know who He is!!! He is my Help, my Savior, my Deliverer, my Redeemer, my Help in the times of trouble. I can call Him in the midnight hours, I can call Him anytime, any day, day or night, ALL I HAVE TO DO IS CALL HIS HOLY NAME JESUS!!!!! I know where my help comes from, my help comes from the Lord!!! He is wonderful !!!!
    Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
    This is my God!!! Mighty in battle!!! Jesus!!!! I don not need any one or anything else. Jesus is all I NEED!!!! He is my Health, my Hope, My savior, my Help in times of trouble, He is my Peace, my Joy, MY ALL, THAT IS MY JESUS!!! Hallelujah Thank you Jesus!!!

  30. 1 Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.

    2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

    Seeking God in a time of need and asking him to deliver us from evil is who I’d seek first. I praise him in advance because he’s my deliverer, an on time God he loves his children, as a child of God he loves us all unconditionally.

  31. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    We are blessed with many materialistic things, relationships, and entertainment of this world that gives a sense of joy. Enjoying dinner with friends, a new electronic, or traveling to new places are all enjoyable. Yet doesn’t come close to the true joy that comes from Jesus!

    From LIVING and GIVING Jesus! We are called to share such joy!

  32. Psalm 70:4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    Yes ! let God magnified!
    Definition in Bible is to make greater, esteem or respect, elevate

    Glory ye in his name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. Psalm 105:3

    Pray God would fill the hearts of our friends with JOY this Sunday “Friends Day”

  33. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    A prayer that we all should say everyday! There will be a great harvest and all that come will magnify the Lord. I know what I felt when I came back to church and it was and is love that will forever be in me. Share this experience so that his glory rings out on high!

  34. Psalms 70:4
    But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, “God is great!”

    Proverbs 8:17
    English Standard Version
    I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.

    God is now waiting with wide and open arms for all of us to come to Him. God wants intimate fellowship, intimate prayer and communication.
    Bottom line – God is looking for seekers! God is looking for those who will not be afraid to try and establish a one-on-one, personal, on-fire, passionate, intense, and willing to tell-all and share-all love relationship with Him. God is looking for a maximum intense kind of personal relationship with no holds barred. Having the Holy Spirit now residing on the inside of us, we now have a direct link and a direct connection back to both God and Jesus in heaven. We can now all pray, talk, and communicate direct to God and Jesus through the Holy Spirit. Now that the channels have been completely opened up between God and us, each Christian must now make a personal choice in this life as to whether or not they want to make an attempt get to know this awesome and loving God of ours by establishing this kind of deep, close, intimate, personal relationship with Him. Seek, and then you will find God. Draw near to God, and then He will draw near to you. Ask, and then you will receive. Knock, and then the doors will opened up for you. Not only is God telling us in these verses to seek and attempt to draw near to Him, but He is also telling us to seek after Him with “all of our heart” and with “all of our soul.” Seeking after God with “all” of our heart and “all” of our soul is showing us that God is wanting us to come after Him with maximum intensity, not with a half-hearted or lukewarm attempt. “God is No Respecter of Persons,” God the Father has an equal and unconditional love for each person He has ever created. The Bible tells us that God shows no personal favoritism to any man or woman He has ever created. We are all equal in the eyes of God. He loves you just as much as He loves anyone else in this life. God has already shown us how much He really does love all of us by being willing to send down and sacrifice His one and only Son. All God is asking from each one of us is that we be willing to fully trust Him, and then be willing to enter into this special, intimate, personal relationship with Him.
    Seek The Lord

    Seeking After the Lord With All of Your Heart

    There are two main themes that you will see repeated over and over in many of our articles. The first theme is the extreme importance that each and every Christian enter into a full surrender with the Lord so that He can then enter them into His perfect plan and destiny for their lives.

    The second main theme that you will see repeated over and over again is the extreme importance that each and every Christian seek to establish a good, close, intimate, personal relationship with the Lord.

    When you really stop and think about the big picture and what is really most important in this life, and then study the Bible to see where all of our priorities should be set at in this life – there is one special message and revelation that comes jumping off all the pages of the Bible.

    This one special message and revelation is that God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit are looking to establish and make a direct, one-on-one, intimate, personal relationship with each person He has created.

    God knew beforehand that Adam and Eve were going to blow it in the Garden of Eden. God knew beforehand that every man and woman that would be born after them would all turn out to be unholy sinners in His sight, and that none of us would ever be good enough or righteous enough to be able to enter into His kingdom on any our own good works.

    At this point, God could have easily given up on the entire human race after the fall of Adam and Eve, but for some strange reason, He chose not to do so. Why?

    When you really stop to think about what unholy sinners we all really are, and how fallen and corrupt our human nature really is, you have to wonder – what does God see in any of us that makes us so redeemable in His sight?

    Why would God the Father go to such extreme and painful lengths to bring us all back to Himself by sending down His one and only Son Jesus Christ to our cursed earth to go through the worst and most horrible form of physical death that anyone could have possibly undergone at the time He came down to our world – crucifixion by nails?

    For God the Father to go to such an extreme and painful length to get all of us back to Himself shows us only one possible thing – and that one thing is how much our God really, truly, and unconditionally loves each man and each woman He has ever created.

    There is no way that God the Father is going to send down and sacrifice His one and only Son on a cross if He did not have some kind of special, maximum intense, passionate, jealous, all-consuming type of fire love for each person He has ever created.

    The fact that God and Jesus would ever allow this kind of scenario to unfold just to be able to save us and bring us back to Themselves is truly a maximum kind of intense and unconditional love that our human minds have a hard time in really being able to fully grasp.

    This kind of total, complete, unconditional, and perfect love is beyond our ability to fully understand or comprehend, especially in the type of world we live in today.

    So why does the Lord have this kind of an intense and passionate love for each one of us since we have all been proven to be such unworthy and unholy sinners in His sight?

    What exactly does God see in all of us that makes us so redeemable in His sight? God is obviously seeing something in all of us that is making us salvageable in His sight, otherwise He would have never wasted His time sending His Son Jesus down to our earth to save us.

    After studying the Bible from start to finish, I believe there is one main reason why the Lord has gone to such extreme and painful lengths to bring all of us back to Himself – and that one main reason is for intimate fellowship.

    I believe the main reason that God created the first man and the first woman was for intimate fellowship. And God was not only wanting intimate fellowship with Adam and Eve, but He was also going to want it with every man and woman that would follow after them.

    Though Adam and Eve blew it for every man and woman that would be born after them, God still has not changed His mind from what his original intentions were going to be. God still has this incredible perfect and unconditional love for each one of us, and He has now made a way for all of us to be able to receive that divine love – and that way is through His Son Jesus and the Blood that Jesus has personally shed for each one of us on the cross.

    The Blood that Jesus has personally shed for each and everyone of us on the cross now gives us full entrance back into the kingdom of God the Father. Our spiritual relationship with God the Father, which was completely torn and severed with the first sin of Adam and Eve, has now been fully restored through the Blood of Jesus Christ.

    We have now all been made spiritually whole and complete again if we are willing to accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior.

    We have now come full circle again! We have now got back what Adam and Eve lost in their first original paradise. Our spiritual relationship has now been fully restored back with God the Father.

    Now that we have come full circle again with God the Father, there is now one more thing that each Christian must decide on in this life.

    The veil has now been torn apart between God and us. There are now no more walls, barriers, hindrances, and roadblocks between us and God.

    There is now nothing but clear and smooth sailing ahead of us as far as our own personal relationship with God is concerned. The Bible tells us that we are now all free to approach the throne of God anytime we want for prayer and intimate communication with complete confidence and boldness.

    God is now waiting with wide and open arms for all of us to approach Him. And what exactly is God waiting for?

    Intimate fellowship, intimate prayer and communication, intimate dialogue and conversations about anything and everything, and intimate sharing of our most personal, private, and secret thoughts.

    Bottom line – God is looking for seekers! God is looking for those who will not be afraid to try and establish a one-on-one, personal, on-fire, passionate, intense, and willing to tell-all and share-all love relationship with Him.

    God is looking for a maximum intense kind of personal relationship with no holds barred. He is looking for on-fire and passionate people who will try and tear into Him, who will try and take a hold of Him, and who will try to understand Him and all of His ways.

    The Scripture verses I will list in this article are the bridge, the key, and the secret to being able to find and make direct contact with the Lord in this lifetime. As result of having the Holy Spirit now residing on the inside of us, we now have a direct link and a direct connection back to both God and Jesus in heaven. We can now all pray, talk, and communicate direct to God and Jesus through the Holy Spirit.

    Now that the channels have been completely opened back up between God and us, each Christian must now make a personal choice in this life as to whether or not they want to make an attempt get to know this awesome and loving God of ours by establishing this kind of deep, close, intimate, personal relationship with Him.

    For those of you who would really like to enter into and start to establish this kind of a deeper personal relationship with the Lord, the Scripture verses I will list below will give you the key and secret to being able to really do this in this life.

    You do not have to wait until you get to heaven to be able to make direct contact with God. You can learn how to establish a good, powerful, personal relationship with the Lord right where you are standing at right now.

    The key and secret to being able to establish this kind of deeper, personal, intimate relationship with the Lord in this life is dependent upon one, simple, little thing – and this one, simple, little thing is that you have to be willing to seek after it!

    The verses below are really spelling and shouting out this secret. Study the specific wording in these verses very carefully. As you will see when you study the wording in these specific verses, God is telling us that we have to be the ones to first initiate making some kind of direct contact with Him!

    Seek, and then you will find God. Draw near to God, and then He will draw near to you. Ask, and then you will receive. Knock, and then the doors will opened up for you.

    In each one of the verses making these profound statements, we have to be the ones to first start out by doing the actual seeking, asking, knocking, and drawing near to God.

    If we do, these verses are then telling us that God will allow us to “find Him.” We will be able to make direct contact with both God and Jesus through the Holy Spirit if we show God that we mean serious business with Him by putting in a certain amount of intensity in our seeking of Him.

    If there is one personal secret that I have learned in my own personal walk with the Lord in order to try and get Him to become much more active in my daily life – is that I have to be seeker after Him and all of His ways.

    If you are not willing to put in a certain amount of quality time to seek after the Lord – and then to try and develop an active, dynamic, personal relationship with Him, then you will have very little, if any true spiritual and supernatural activity coming from Him.

    The verses below are all showing us that we have to be the ones to try and get the ball rolling with God on this seeking. I believe God is letting us know with the specific wording of these verses is that there is a spiritual law that is in operation in His kingdom – and that spiritual law is the seeking law.

    Seek after God, and then you will find Him. And the more that you seek after God, the more you will find of Him and the deeper and stronger your personal relationship will become with Him.

    I believe there is a direct correlation between the quality and intensity of your seeking with the Lord and how much He will interact back with you. The deeper, stronger, and more intense you seek after God – the deeper, stronger, and more intense God will come and seek after you!

    Not only is God telling us in these verses to seek and attempt to draw near to Him, but He is also telling us to seek after Him with “all of our heart” and with “all of our soul.” Seeking after God with “all” of our heart and “all” of our soul is showing us that God is wanting us to come after Him with maximum intensity, not with a half-hearted or lukewarm attempt.

    This would be no different in how we see professional and amateur athletes compete with one another in the sports games they play. A true professional athlete will give it his best and give it his all every single time he goes out to compete in his particular sport.

    In the same way, God wants all of us to show Him the same amount of intensity in our own personal relationship with Him and in our own personal seeking of Him and all of His ways.

    I know many Christians, when they first read these types of verses, get scared and a bit overwhelmed at the specific wording being used by the Lord. These verses need no fancy interpretation. They mean exactly what they are saying.

    God is telling all of us that He wants us to be seeking after Him, drawing near to Him, trying to take a hold of Him, and trying to understand Him and all of His ways.

    And not only does God want us to initiate and make an attempt to do this type of seeking after Him, but He wants this seeking to be done with maximum effort and maximum intensity.

    When many Christians first realize how much intensity God is really looking for in this type of seeking, they realize they are not operating anywhere near this level of intensity with Him, and they then back off never giving God any kind of real chance to help work this kind of intensity in their own personal relationships with Him.

    Rome was not built overnight, and neither will your own personal relationship with the Lord. All God is looking for is that you give Him the best effort you can at your current level of spiritual development with Him. If you do, then God will more than meet you halfway in this realm.

    When two people first meet and start dating, they usually do not fall madly and passionately in love with one another. It usually takes a certain amount of time for this kind of true, passionate, and intense type of love to form out and build up. It’s the exact same with God the Father.

    God does not expect this kind of passionate intensity to be built up overnight. For many, this will be a slow and gradual process, with the Holy Spirit being the One to slowly guide you further and deeper into this realm with God.

    Again, seeking after the Lord to try and establish a good, deep, intimate, personal relationship with Him is all part of the sanctification process that God would like to do with each and everyone of us.

    Before I give you the verses on this topic, and then end the article with some of the different ways that you can seek after the Lord in this lifetime, I first want to make one more statement so you can fully grasp the importance and the incredible profound reality that we are dealing with – in that the one and only God of this entire universe is looking to make and establish a direct, one-on-one, personal relationship with each person He has ever created.

    We are dealing with only one God – but one God in three separate and complete Persons – God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. All Three of Them want more than anything else in this world to be able to make direct contact with you so They can then start to establish and create this unique, special, one-of-a-kind, personal relationship direct with only you.

    As I stated in my article titled, “God is No Respecter of Persons,” God the Father has an equal and unconditional love for each person He has ever created. The Bible tells us that God shows no personal favoritism to any man or woman He has ever created. What this means is that we are all equal in the eyes of God.

    We are all on an equal footing with the Lord. He loves you just as much as He loves anyone else in this life.

    What this means is that you can establish and develop just as much of a special, deep, personal relationship with God as anyone else can. God will give you just as much time, attention, effort, and intensity as He would with anyone else.

    Just stop and think for a moment what kind of reality we are dealing with – that the one and only God of this entire universe can become your best Friend and your one and only true Father! I repeat – your best Friend! A true best Friend who will never harm you, hurt you, mistreat you, lie to you, leave you, or forsake you!

    So many people in this life have been abused, hurt, wounded, mistreated, and discarded by their parents, by their spouses, and by some of their so called good friends. As a result, they have a hard time in being able to trust anyone, including God Himself.

    Per the article we have titled, “Trusting in the Lord,” the Bible tells us that we have to learn how to fully trust in the Lord. God is the only One who is perfect in His very nature and personality, and He thus is the only One that we can perfectly trust in this life. All other men and women in this life are fallen and imperfect creatures.

    This is why each and every Christian has to learn how to place all of their faith and trust in the Lord – not in the world, and not in all of the other people in this world.

    God has already shown us how much He really does love all of us by being willing to send down and sacrifice His one and only Son. All God is asking from each one of us is that we be willing to fully trust Him, and then be willing to enter into this special, intimate, personal relationship with Him.

    For those of you who are really looking for true love – true love can only be found in a perfect Being – and God is the only perfect Being in the entire scheme of things.

    Though we are to do the best we can in establishing good, healthy, personal relationships with all of our family and friends – realize that only God is totally perfect in His very nature and personality – and only God can give you a perfect, true, and unconditional love that no one else will be able to give you in this life.

    If you place all of your love and trust in the other people in this life rather than direct to God Himself, then sooner or later you will find yourself hurt, wounded, and bitterly disappointed. Imperfect people are not capable of giving you any type of perfect and unconditional love – no matter how hard they try, and no matter how hard they will try and tell you otherwise.

    So many people are chasing after other people and other material things in this life in an effort to try and find perfect happiness, peace, and fulfillment.

    And then sooner or later it happens. All of their marriages, all of their good friends, all of their earthly wealth and possessions, and all of their personal accomplishments leave them feeling dead, empty, and lifeless on the inside.

    All of the good friends they may have made, and all of the earthly material wealth they may have acquired and accumulated in this life fail to fill the void and emptiness that is on the inside of each and everyone of us.

    God has purposely created all of us with a void and a vacuum on the inside of each of us – and the only thing that can fill that void and emptiness is the Lord Himself. There is nothing else in this world that can fill that little hole that is in all of our souls. This hole can only be completely filled by God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

    Some people manage to find this revelation and truth in their lives, but sadly, most people do not. As Christians, we all have something that no one else has in this life – we have the real God in God the Father, we have the one and only real Savior of this world in Jesus Christ, and we have the one and only Holy Spirit who will come and live on the inside of us once we have accepted Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior.

    As the Bible has already told us, we literally have the kingdom of God residing on the inside of us once we have become saved and born again.

    We literally have the one and only true fountain of perfect peace and happiness – and that is the Lord Himself! And it is all there for the taking for those who are willing to dive into Him and start to seek and drink from Him. Jesus has already told us that He Himself is the fountain of living waters and that we will never hunger or thirst again if we would only be willing to drink directly from Him.

    The water is Jesus – and the drinking is our seeking to establish a close, intimate, personal relationship with Him.

    God is waiting for each and every person He has created to come to Him to try and establish this kind of close, intimate, personal relationship with Him. And this can be done if you will just seek after Him with all of your heart, with all of your mind, and with all of your soul.

    Now here are some of the main verses from the Bible giving us this profound secret and revelation direct from the Lord Himself. I will break these Scripture verses down under 5 separate captions so you can see exactly what the Lord is trying to convey to all of us in these very powerful verses.

    1. God Is Looking For Seekers

    These first two verses will perfectly set the stage for all of us in reference to learning how to develop a good personal relationship with the Lord.

    This first verse will tell us that God the Father is actually looking down on this earth from His heaven for those who will seek after Him and who will try and understand Him.

    The second verse perfectly completes this first verse when it tells us that God is looking for those who will try and take a hold of Him.

    Put these two verses together side by side, and God the Father is telling all of us, loud and clear, that He is looking for passionate and intense seekers who will try and take a hold of Him, who will try and figure Him out, and who will try to understand Him and all of His ways.

    Here are two very profound verses giving us this incredible piece of revelation:

    “The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.” (Psalm 14:2)

    “And there is no one who calls on Your name, who stirs himself up to take hold of You …” (Isaiah 64:7)

    To think that this one and only all-powerful God is actually looking down on this earth from His heavenly throne to try and find people who are willing to seek after Him. This verse is shouting from the roof tops two very powerful words – open invitation! God the Father is giving every single one of us an open invitation to come in and make some kind of attempt to seek after Him.

    2. Seeking After the Lord
    These next set of verses will tell us that not only does God the Father want us to seek after Him, but they will tell us that if we make some kind of attempt to seek after Him, that we will actually “find Him.”

    Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8)
    For thus says the Lord God to the House of Israel: “Seek Me and live … Seek the Lord and live …” (Amos 5:4,6)
    “Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore!” (1 Chronicles 16:11)
    “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13)“
    … and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29)
    “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart!” (Psalm 119:1)
    “For it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.” (Hosea 10:12)
    “With my soul I have desired You in the night, yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early …” (Isaiah 26:9)
    “Then they entered into a covenant to seek the Lord God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul …” (2 Chronicles 15:12)
    “If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.” (1 Chronicles 28:9)
    “O God, you are my God; early I will seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.” (Psalm 63:1)
    … and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)

    Talk to God Like You Would Talk to a Best Friend

    One of the greatest stories in the Bible about someone who was not afraid to approach God and attempt to commune and talk to Him like you would a best friend has to be the story of Moses. This man’s story and adventure in God will go down as one of the greatest God-stories of all time. This one man, in a 40 year period, was able to talk direct to God, see God personally manifest His presence from His back side, receive all of the 10 commandments, and help prepare a younger generation to go in and possess the Promised Land. But since then there has not risen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face.” (Deuteronomy 34:10)
    “So the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.” (Exodus 33:11)

    The first verse says that Moses “knew” God face to face. The word “knew” is implying that Moses had established a very good personal relationship with the Lord. The second set of words, where it says that Moses knew the Lord “face to face,” is also implying that he made a good type of personal connection with the Lord in an effort to try and get to know Him better. Notice that Moses was seeking after the “face” of God, not after His hand. Seeking after the “face” of God means that you are seeking directly after God in an effort to try and get to know Him better as a Person. You are seeking after God to get to know His personality.

    5 Ways To Seek After the Lord
    1. Your Prayer Life With the Lord
    2. Reading and Studying From the Bible
    3. Reading and Studying From Other Christian Books
    4. Fellowship With Other Believers
    5. Watch For the Lord to Move in Your Everyday Life

  35. 2 May those who want to take my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
    may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.

    If the Lord went through great pain. What makes us believe that we won’t be going to pass through the same experiences or trials?!? The beauty is that He died for us and we have Him. Things are not going to be easy but we have the one who created it all on our side and Is fighting for us. Jesus is the answer to it all!!!

  36. 1 Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.

    2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

    Proverbs 29:25
    The fear of man bringeth a snare:
    but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

    So thankful for His unending protection against the enemy! Where would I be without Him …. I wouldn’t even want to attempt to be outside His fence of protection.

    This Psalm caused me to remember the scriptures concerning the 1 lost sheep that went astray.

    Luke 15:3-7
    And he spake this parable unto them, saying, What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

    Just think if He has not gone after that 1 sheep, a whole future generation would be be affected and lost for an eternity. I researched on how many times that an ewe could give birth on a year and the answer was most likely twice a year. WOW just think of the babies that could be affected from that 1 lost sheep… thank you Lord for reaching down to me when I was wandering away from you!

  37. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    It is God that fills us with joy and faith and strength. The Lord is our savior he saved us from evil he saved us from our darkest and hardest points. God is the reason we have life. O God how we praise and worship you daily, we give thanks unto you for every blessing we’ve received. We thank you Lord for your unfailing love and for always protecting us and giving gladness and wisdom.

  38. “But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, “God is great!” But as for me, I am poor and needy; please hurry to my aid, O God. You are my helper and my savior; O Lord, do not delay.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭70:4-5‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/116/psa.70.4-5.nlt

    The Lord is the only way to true love and joy. The Lord is all we need Nothing in the the world can compete with the Lord. Start turning to the Lord for he is the way the truth and life.

  39. 4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    How true do we find this scripture to be? If it’s TRUE and it is we should rejoice and be glad. To key is in the seeking. What effort do you give to finding the Lord? The key is in the action. What do we do to go and intentionally seek after God? You will get exactly what you look for. If after a few moments you leave without finding then you may not have digged enough. Every treasure is not that easy to find. Yet those that do, its value is unmeasured. God in his Word says that we will find him. If we seek him with all our heart. You gotta put your heart in it. That’s where the value lies.

  40. Psalms 70

    “Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭70:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    This Scripture means that, Those who live on Earth must magnify The Lord Our God, and those who are Saved must Praise The Lord.

  41. “But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.”
    Psalms 70:5 KJV

    Lord I need you daily because without you I am driven into temptation and into my sin, but you Lord are my hope and my deliverer my trust is in you Lord forever.

  42. 3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
    4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

    When things seem to go wrong and all you hear is Aha! Don’t be discouraged… seek and be rejoiced for the Lord will come to our aid. Magnify the Lord for He is worthy!

  43. But as for me, I am poor and needy; please hurry to my aid, O God. You are my helper and my savior; O Lord , do not delay.
    Psalms 70:5 NLT

    Even though we are needy and at times can sound like spoiled little kids. Our God still heres our cry and saves us in due time.

  44. 5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    Sometimes we think we need to let God know where we are right now and let him know we need him to hurry, but God knows what we have need of before we ask and he is always right on time. We should just put all of our trust in him, because he never fails.

  45. 5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    We have all been at a low point at some point in our lives. We needed the savior to come rescue us. It seems like it a while before He gets there but in reality He was there before we ever arrived. He is just waiting on us.

  46. Isn’t it amazing how we rush God. We want answers right now, we want his help right now. But when he gives us instruction do we move right now? I wonder if we responded to Gods word as quick as we want him to answer if he may just answer when we want him to?

  47. 1 Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.
    2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

    To those that desire my hurt. God will take care of the naysayers. God will take care of those that give us grief. God will take of those that go out of their way to make us hurt. God can and will. Out that hurt in God’s hands and watch him work. Pray to him as this passage is and watch him intervene.

  48. “May all those who seek You [as life’s first priority] rejoice and be glad in You; May those who love Your salvation say continually, “Let God be magnified!””
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭70:4‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    In reading this short chapter, the song Jesus at the Center came to mind. He is truly the center of it all. I go to Him for advice, for guidance. I go to Him for protection and safe keeping. I go to Him for strength and joy, for peace and love. He’s at the center. When my enemies chastise me, I can count on Jesus to defend me, to place me in His secret place.

    I thank God He is in control and hears every cry, every whisper, every prayer. I pray we continue to seek His Kingdom with all our hearts, while magnifying and glorifying His name!

  49. “Hasten, O God, to save me; come quickly, Lord, to help me.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭70:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Having my own children has helped me see just how loving and caring God is, how he hastens to keep us from harm and shields us from things unforeseen to us. I picture my boys jumping towards whatever lies ahead and me by their side ready to pick them up and take care of their scrawled knees. It’s like watching g your baby learning to walk and when they stumble your hand comes out of nowhere and breaks their fall. God is the same way, we don’t always realize he’s right beside us but as soon as we stumble he swoops in and breaks our fall.

  50. 5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

    It’s funny to see David have to remind God of how desperate he is for Him to hurry. I can’t deny I’ve felt the need to come when I feel it necessary. Even a man of his stature, after all God has done for him, to worry in tribulations.

    I don’t think worrying means you lack in faith, it just not to the fullness of what God wants.

    “Help my little faith!”

  51. 3Let them be horrified by their shame, for they said, “Aha! We’ve got him now!”

    Many will try and trap someone and say “we’ve got you now.” With God, you don’t have to be worried about getting trapped. Just let God guide, and you’ll be just fine.

  52. “And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.” 2 Samuel 11:2

    This woman Bathsheba was the wife of Uriah the Hittite. David had her come to his place and he slept with her. She was married and David had her husband Uriah go to where the heavy fighting was knowing that Uriah would probably die. This happened and our Lord was not pleased.

    David was king and I wonder if Bathsheba did not want to deny the king, due to his status. David knew better to do what he did. He had been close to God and now he did not show favor in the eyes of the Lord. We all can be tempted with money and all sort of things. We must not let the devil deceive us! Be strong and do what pleases God, not a temporary sin that is short lived. Thank you God for this day!
