Have You Found Him Yet?

Jeremiah 29:13(KJV) "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."

A lot of us are continually asking God for more of Him, but we just aren't doing what we need to do to receive more of Him. He clearly isn't saying go to church more, or get involved in more activities with the church. This is a spiritual thing, not a religious thing. Instead of getting more involved in church, we need to get more involved with God Himself.

We have to seek Him, not because He's lost, but because we are. He is always there, waiting with outstretched arms, waiting for us to turn our will over to His. We keep looking in all the wrong places for God. There is nothing wrong with church involvement, but it cannot take the place of our relationship with God.

When we get into that secret place and open up our hearts to God, it is there that He can speak to us and make Himself known. It is in that blessed quietness, that perfect peace, that we cultivate our relationship with our creator. That's where He gently speaks to us, nourishes us with His Word, and encourages our hearts, as we worship Him.

Seek Him with all your heart, and He guarantees that you will find Him.
