You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. – (Jeremiah 29:13, HCSB)
You will search for Me, and when you search for Me with all your heart, you will find Me. – (Jeremiah 29:13, ERV)
You will look for Me intently, and you will find Me. – (Jeremiah 29:13, VOICE)
Even when things seem the darkest or most difficult, God is near and ready to help. He is gentle and kind, and waits for us to call on Him. As we do, we discover that God is present and hears our every cry. May we ever seek the Lord earnestly, for He is faithful to be found.
In the sweet seeking,
The Lord’s ever found;
Faithful to answer,
His love does abound.
No matter what comes,
The Lord remains near;
Our hope and our help,
Each prayer He does hear.
So call on the Lord,
Our hope, help and peace;
Earnestly seek Him,
His love will not cease.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that when we seek You, You are ever faithful to be found. Thank You that You are for us and You remain near. Forgive us for our lack of seeking in our spaces of need. Teach us to turn to You in all things, for You are present to help and worthy of all praise. Show us how to love those around us in ways that make Your love evident to all. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we seek You with all of our heart, knowing that You are faithful forever. Amen.
