For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the LORD, Jeremiah 29:11-14a (ESV)
What will you find if you seek me with all your heart? How are you going about seeking me with all your heart? How has seeking me with all your heart become the priority of your life? Those are all good questions. I usually ask good questions. Yes, you do. If I seek you with all my heart, I will find you. I will find the close and intimate relationship that I have always wanted to have with you. I will come to know you. You will come to know me. I will hear your voice. You will hear my voice. You will hear my questions. I will hear your answers. I will be praying to you. You will be hearing and answering my prayers. Yes, I will. As I seek you with all my heart, I will learn your will and your ways. As I follow you, with all my heart and mind and soul and strength your plans for my life will unfold before me. You will help me to know and do your will. Yes, I will. As part of seeking you with all my heart I have set apart a time and a place to meet with you every day in your word. I am sitting before you. I am listening to you. I am receiving your instructions. I am following your guidance. You are leading me to where you want me to go and giving me what you have asked me to do for you. You are helping me to know your purposes and plans for my life. You are helping me to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. That’s right.
What do you have as you are seeking me with all your heart? As I seek you with all my heart I am filled with hope for the plans you have for my life. I am not stumbling around in his world. I am not trying to figure out the meaning of life. You are my hope. You are my meaning in life. You are my peace. In you, I have everything that I have ever hoped for, wanted or needed. It is my joy to seek you. I love you with all my heart and soul and strength. It Is my joy to live my life with and for you. That is very good. You are my Savior and Lord. Yes, I am. I will continue to seek you with all my heart every day of my life as I follow and serve you. That will be very good.
Lord, I will seek you with all my heart. I want to know you. I want to know your will and your ways. Help me to live out the life and the plans you have for me. I want to go where you guide me to do all that you ask of me. Use me according to your purposes Amen
