St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033–1109) wrote, “Flee for a while from your tasks; hide yourself for a little space from the turmoil of your thoughts. Come, cast aside your burdensome cares, and put aside your laborious pursuits. For a little while give your time to God, and rest in him for a little while. Enter into the inner chamber of your mind, shut out all things save God and whatever may aid you in seeking God; and having barred the door of your chamber, seek him.”
Jesus said, “Seek and you will find” and this would certainly apply to “seek him and you will find him” as Anselm has suggested. To seek the Father is to seek his Kingdom as well because our life is lived out and fulfilled as Father seekers and Kingdom seekers. We want the rule and reign of the Father in all things and all places.
“And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” Jesus
