“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)
Have you ever really sought after something? Really longed to find it? When it is important to us, it is amazing to see how serious we can get. This is how God wants us to seek after Him. He spoke through the Prophet Jeremiah, admonishing us that the only way we would really find Him was when we seek Him with our whole heart. Notice, Jeremiah did not say, “when you seek him with your whole intellect.” It is not knowing “about” God; it is about “knowing God” in a deep and intimate way. God is saying that if you would get passionate about Him, then you will begin to find Him. How intent are you on knowing God? Begin today by seeking Him with your whole heart.
Father, I come to You today. I really do want to know You. I want to have a deep intimate relationship with You. Help me discipline myself to take the time to know You. Take the time to hear You. Take the time to tell You my thoughts, hopes and dreams. To share with You my fears, apprehensions and doubts. As I seek You this way, that is with all my heart, I pray that You would reveal more and more of Yourself to me.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
I seek to know God with all my heart
Today start by telling God that you want to know Him with all your heart. Meditate on what that means. Ask God to reveal Himself to you in such a way that you can emotionally respond to Him. Ask Him to help you to have a heart felt love for Him. And then wait. Just wait for His love to come to you. Wait for Him. Visualize yourself in His presence and sense His love for you. Let His love for you fill your whole heart.
