When I Seek God, I Find Him
You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
Have you ever played hide and seek?
Of course, you have! When my children were younger, they used to love to play that little game. I would hide, then they would try and find me. Sometimes I would hide a little too well, so I had to give them some hinds like a cough or make a sound just at the right moment. They would hear me and their energy would be renewed. Soon the hunt was on again. When they found me, everyone would scream and laugh. My goal wasn’t to hide but to be found. I wanted my children to find me.
God doesn’t hide from you.
He isn’t avoiding you. He desires to be found by you. Here is the heart of this promise; seeking God always results in finding Him. No matter where you are in your walk with God, there is more to be discovered.
You will never plumb the depths of His love, presence, or compassion for you. As you seek after Him, He will reveal Himself to you at a deeper level. The more you seek Him, the more you will know Him, and the more you know Him the greater his power and presence will be released in your life.
At the same time, half-hearted or part-time seeking won’t bring you much success.
God promises he will be found when you seek Him with all your heart. When seeking after God’s heart becomes the focus of your spiritual life, you will find Him. When you find Him, you find everything you need.
This promise assures you that what you seek after God, you will find Him. He will show Himself to you. He won’t frustrate you by hiding where you can’t find Him.
Look at this promise again.
You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. – Jeremiah 29:13
Confess this with me.
God is not hiding from me.
When I seek Him, I find Him.
He reveals Himself to me when I seek Him with all my heart.
I am seeking Him today, so I can know and enjoy Him more.
In Jesus Name,
You have the assurance today that when you seek after the Lord, He will show Himself to you.
