An independent work, The God We Seek serves also as the capstone of Paul Weiss’s entire philosophic system: a philosophic system dealing with the whole of being and knowledge, both in a highly abstract form (The Modes of Being), and in concrete, specialized guises (The World of Art, Nine Basic Arts, History: Written and Lived).Author: Professor Paul Weiss PhD.

The God We Seek examines many of the metaphors found in the Bible and explains the differences between them. It will help you understand the God that was known by people who lived hundreds and thousands of years ago and perhaps to learn from : Mary Donovan Turner.

The God We Seek (Arcturus paperbacks, AB). The God we seek is thus, in Mr. Weiss's viewpoint, no distillate, no abstract desiccated element but something at least as rich and as concrete as the specialized forms of experience and concerns exhibited in particular religions- but without their bias.

The Gods We Seek continues the exciting story as part two of the trilogy. The character development is excellent and the characters are very easy to know.

The book has a wonderful mix of intense scientific knowledge, extended into amazing sci/fi technology. There is also a beautiful mystical thread woven into the entire story.5/5(5).

“Seek is the perfect book for any woman who desires to get acquainted with God. Donna Jones leads women on an inspiring journey and does a beautiful job of weaving the practical, the biblical, and the personal in her introduction to God. Her refreshing and engaging style.

By contrast, the spiritual practices described by Schmidt show how we can better recognize the difference between God's will and our own, deepen our ability to hear God's voice, and sharpen our powers of discernment. What God Wants for Your Life: Changing the Way We Seek God's Will () by Frederick W.

Schmidt. In ourselves, we cannot seek after God, for the simple reason that seeking God is a good and holy thing. Sinful flesh is incapable of good and holy things (Isaiah ).

Jesus said, “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them” (John ). It is urgent that we take God more seriously. In the language of Hb.we need to seek God more diligently.

During this series of studies, we’re going to take an in-depth look at every key word in this text. In this lesson, we want to focus on the idea of PLEASING God. Frankly, this is an issue that we struggle with. When we listen to preaching or read books on doctrine, we are seeking God through his word contained in those sources, and God will speak to us through preaching and books.

We must remember though, that only God’s word is inspired by God. When we flee temptation, turn from sin, and seek God, the by-product is the filling of the Spirit. The door of temptation swings both ways—you can enter or exit.

We can learn about God, and be accepted by God through the words and work of Jesus. But, clearly, this is not the same as knowing God. So how do we really get to know someone. We seek them out and spend time with them.

We converse with them. We learn to trust what they say and to rely upon them. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. We won’t be a fool Proverbs New International Version (NIV) The discerning heart seeks knowledge, but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly.

We’ll avoid evil Proverbs New International Version Go, seek Jehovah for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found, for great is the fury of Jehovah that is kindled against us, because that our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according to all that is written for us.'.

Seek God Everywhere book. Read 17 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius is one of the great mas /5(17).

But God gives to us another way to seek Him. We Can Know God Through His Son It is through God’s son Jesus Christ, that we have a clear picture of God.

Jesus is not just another prophet. He is God’s Son that came in real time history so that we could get to know His Father. God has not given us a method. We understand that as we seek God, he seeks to help and deliver us.

We learn from these and other biblical examples that seeking God also requires some things on our part. We must be willing to cut the groves, smash the idols, take the abominations out of the temple (and the heart), pray, weep, fast, etc.

Seeking God also requires that the men. We must be careful not to underestimate the capacity of children to read and to understand the word of God” (in Conference Report, Oct. 81–82; or Ensign, Nov.70). If you want to discuss the subject of teaching children in more detail, you may want to refer to pages –43 in the edition of Teaching, No Greater Call ().

The story recounted in chapters 1 and 2 makes us privy to actual conversations between God and Satan. When we begin reading the book of Job we learn that, while God allowed Satan to afflict Job, He set limits beyond which the devil could not pass.

From the start we know there are limits to Job’s trial, and we know what those limits are. Read this book and accept a personal invitation from a very real and relevant God who wants you to get up and go with Him.

This requires much trust, along with being present, aware and responsive. We must also be mindful that many times, our plans are not always God's plans.

In Matthew (ESV) it says: “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” God remains available and ready for us to find Him, to look for and worship Him in those anxiety-riddled situations.

To seek God’s kingdom means we’ve made a conscience decision to turn toward God versus anxiety or worry. God of hope, we seek You. 1 min ago. The Tier 1 students of St. Wendelin’s Catholic School took time out of their school day to say a prayer during the first week of Advent.

Advent’s first week emphasizes hope for all. The teacher led the students in prayer asking God to fill everyone’s hearts with hope. The students reached out to the. A Christian would say that God has given us the capacity to seek after truth and know the truth so that we can in fact know God and enter into some sort of relationship with this God.

Christians also assert that our capacity for this knowledge and this relationship have been corrupted by our biases, our fears, our selfishness, etc. Introduction Many Christians seek divine guidance in terms of some simplistic formula: “Consider the Scriptures, your feelings, and the circumstances.

When these three line up, you have the will of God.” I believe that the Bible gives us no such formulas. The Christian life is a life of faith, lived in accordance with the Word of God, applied by means of the wisdom which God gives (cf.

Therefore, when we receive the praise of man, if it is not immediately brought under the truth of the gospel (that we deserve nothing but the wrath of God), it can become an addictive drug that we seek at the cost of the freedom and joy that is ours in our secured and loved identity in Christ.

God asks us to seek Him. He longs to be found. We know part of who God is, and that gives us a desire to know even more (1 Corinthians ). Driven by our hunger for the life that is in God, we seek Him. God sought us first. The very act of creation is one of pursuit – He created us so that we could know Him.

Twice here it talks about returning to God personally: “to the LORD to our God.” The word “LORD” there is in all caps, which as we have studied means that in the Hebrew text, this is the personal name of God, YHWH.

So God is telling us here that if we really want to seek Him, then we need to seek HIM, the God of the Bible, personally. Verse 5. - If thou wouldest seek unto God we have again an echo of the words of Eliphaz ().There is a tacit assumption that Job has not had recourse to God, has not pleaded his cause with him or taken him into counsel; whereas all the evidence was the other way.

We are born DOA (dead on arrival) spiritually speaking, yet we walk a course mapped out for us by the Prince of darkness.

We are by nature children of wrath rather than children of God and unless God intervenes, we will never seek to know the one true God. That is the clear teaching of the opening verses of Ephesians chapter 2.

In the first part of the series of How To Seek God’s Will (Part 1), I summarized that in order to discover God’s will or purpose for your life we need to do the following: (1) READ, STUDY & MEDIATE GOD’S WORD (2) SPEND TIME WITH GOD (3) ASK GOD FOR WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING IN YOUR LIFE.

Today Lord, we choose to seek you with all of our heart, and when we do, we know we will find you because you want us to The King of all glorious things comes in intimacy Intimacy with God is where the seed is imparted into the womb of creativity.

Regardless if we are an outsider, like the people of Nineveh, or an insider, like Jonah, to the Kingdom of God, the book of Jonah is a reminder that God goes to great lengths to demonstrate His grace and mercy to all.

Be encouraged as you read this powerful story of God’s relentless grace and mercy, and may you never forget that no one is beyond redemption.

Fourth, God's Word is totally sufficient for all of our needs. We don't need anything else. In 2 Timothy it reads "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." We Christians can be totally secure in the Lord by.
