 G. Seven Mountain Principle #4: God is worshipped when we seek him.

   1. Proverbs 11 “The Lord detests people with crooked hearts, but he delights in those with integrity.”

   3. John 4, Jesus talks w/ the woman at the well. He connects seeking and worshipping.

 H. God is worshipped when/as we seek him. Jesus tells us how and what God is looking for.

1. There is no relationship without talking! (6:5-15)

 A. Prayer/talking must be personal – not seen by others!

 B. It must be specific! He models it for us!

 C. Essential to our relationship w/ him! Vs.14-15

2. There is no relationship without focus! (6:16-18)

 A. Fasting was a long cultural practice to help focus!

 B. The principle:  Do without to focus on God! Oft ignored!

 C. When and how? Not a show but private. Like Jesus did!

3. There is no relationship without prioritizing! (2-4; 19-24)

 A. Giving, sharing, & sacrificing = personal & private!

C. The key is the process, the journey, the walk…

D. God was seeking Moses, but he wasn’t seeking God!

   * An 80 year process. Doubts, wonders, & questions.

   * After time with God, he became a seeker, loved by God in spite of his mistakes.

E. You only worship God when you are seeking him!
