With All Your Heart

Jeremiah 29:13: “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Most of us have probably played the games, “Hide and Seek” and “I Spy.” If we were the ones who hid, we struggled to stay hidden and not make a sound. If we were the one who sought the others, we listened for any sound and strained our eyes to detect movement.

In the game, “I Spy,” we probably giggled as we yelled, “Cold, colder” or “Hot, hotter.”

The greatest thing about our heavenly Father is that he doesn’t play games with us. He promises that we will find him when we seek him with all our heart.

God doesn’t yell, “Cold, colder” or “Hot, hotter.” He waits with open arms for us.

I received a precious letter from a female resident at a correctional center. In talking about daily prayer and Bible study, she said, “It makes me feel a lot closer to God and he lets me know he’s listening.”

This woman is not someone who was raised in church, but she sought God with all her heart, and she found him.

May this Christmas season be the one when we seek God with all our heart.

Dear God, help me seek you with all my heart. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Application: What will you do to seek God with all your heart this week?
