JULY 30 WITH ALL YOUR HEART

JEREMIAH 29:11-14 “And ye shall seek me, and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jer. 29:13). I’ve talked to many people who knew they needed God in their lives, yet they felt like it was so hard to connect with Him. They said, “I’ve prayed, but the Lord never answered.” Jesus told us, “For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Matt. 7:8). God never fails us. So, what’s the answer? The answer is revealed in this verse. The Lord said we will seek Him and find Him when we search with ALL our hearts. Failure to connect with God is not because of any lack of faithfulness on His part but a lack of seeking with ALL our hearts on our part. Therefore, the key is in our hearts. Focusing all our attention on the Lord unlocks the door to a relationship with Him and everything it produces. The Lord loves us and desires to help us through our troubles, but He doesn’t want us to come to Him only when we’re having problems. So many people are in the desperate situations they’re in because they’ve totally ignored the leading of the Lord in their everyday lives. They want Him to miraculously bail them out of the pit they dug for themselves. Then they go right back to doing the same things that got them in trouble in the first place. They weren’t seeking God with all their hearts, they just wanted out of trouble! Sometimes it’s best for a parent to deny their child’s request to teach them a greater truth. Likewise, the Lord knows our hearts and only reveals Himself to those who seek Him wholeheartedly. Get serious with the Lord today and you’ll find Him!
