Seek the Lord
God tells us if we seek Him (look hard for Him), we will find Him! It does not matter where we are, how old we are, what our problems are – if we seek Him, He will be found by us.
Is. 55:6-7 – “Seek the Lord while He may be found: Call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for He will freely pardon.”
Jer. 29:11-14 – “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and will bring you back from captivity…”
In other words, when we seek God with all of our heart we will find Him – even when we are locked up.
You’ll never have more time to earnestly seek God than you do right now.
Tell the Father you desire to find Him. Ask Him to give you a hunger and a thirst for Him and His Word. Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you how to diligently seek God.
