When you seek me with all of your heart you will find me. Deut. 4:29 Recently I had a time of seeking God where it felt like I just could not connect and I was wondering where he was. I felt like I really needed him and he was not coming around. On the next day I thought about the passage mentioned earlier. Then I reviewed my time of seeking him. When I did this, I realized that I was seeking God, with worries on my heart and fear about the future on my mind. These worries and fears were taking up space in my heart. So all my heart was not engaged in seeking God. When I really break it down, I wasn’t seeking God I was seeking relief. I was seeking a pain killer, not God. Maybe, that is why I thought God was so distant. If I had found relief, I may have mistaken the relief for God.
Oh Lord, teach me to seek you with every part of heart. In Jesus name, Amen
