Seek and You’ll Find, God’s Not Actually Hiding
Jeremiah 29:13 – And ye shall seek me, and find me , when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
Matthew 7:7 says
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you”
Jesus made this statement trying to reveal the love of the Father to us. In this verse Jesus assures us that when we seek something we shall find.
With this assurance, people still tend to have difficulty in seeking God. In our key verse, we get direction as to how to overcome whatever difficulty we may have in “seeking”. What we are to do is simple: seek God with all our heart.
Many times when people seek God, they go with a very divided heart. One part of their mind is asking God for assistance, the other part May be seeking assistance from the world. In a more traditional sense, picture a person asking God for direction in a business. That person kneels and prays in the morning, however, the moment amen is said, a certain person in the village is called who asks for some materials for ,spiritual cleansing in the family shrine.
People need to understand though, that God is not hiding from them, the word says He is light, He is very open and available, though seeking involves patience. We need to be at this point just like Hannah, were we trust no one else in situations other than God.
Psalm 51:17 says “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.”
Many times we try to combine Gods direction with the worlds direction. This leads to failure and we end up blaming God. Anyone reading this should apply what God is telling us in our key verse, I can assure you through Christ you’re going to see results in your walk with God, you’ll experience Spiritual growth, and you’ll learn to receive from God. Have a blessed day.
Dear Lord, I give you all of me, lead me, guide me, I put my total trust in you because you will never fail, Amen.
