You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)
That is what I will do. What will you do? I will seek you with all my heart. Why will you seek me with all your heart? That is a very good question. Do you have an answer? Yes, I will seek you with all my heart because I want to know you. I don’t want to know about you. I actually want to know you. I don’t want to know you a little bit. I want to know you intimately. I want to know your thoughts. I want to know your ways. I want to know your purposes and plans. I want to know anything and everything I can about you. I will seek you with all my heart so I can find you. That will be very good.
What will happen to you as you seek me with all your heart? I will be changed. How so? Day by day, as I seek you, as I come into your presence, as I draw near to you, I will be changed. I can’t remain the same as I come to know you. Your words will be come my words. Your thoughts will become my thoughts. Your actions will become my actions. You will make me to be more and more like you as I spend time with you. Yes, I will. As I come to know you, I will come to love you, as I come to love you, I will come to follow you. As I come to follow you, I will come to serve you. That will be very good.
How will you seek me with all your heart? Your thoughts alone, without actions, will not be enough. Your desires must be into practice. How will you make seeking me the priority of your life? I will set a time and secure a place to meet with you. In our time together, I will draw near to you in prayer. I will draw near to you in worship. I will draw near to you in your word. I will draw near to you in fellowship in your body, the church. I will draw near to you in service as I follow you to wherever you lead me and to do whatever you ask of me. No matter where I am going, no matter what I am doing, my heart and mind and life will be attentive to you. Speak to me, I am listening. Show yourself to me, I am watching. Help me to know and love and follow and serve you as I seek you with all my heart. Yes, I will, without a doubt, you can be sure it that. Thank you, Lord.
Lord, it will be my daily practice to seek you with all my heart. I will set aside a daily time and place to meet with you. I want to find you. I want to know you. I want to love and follow you. Show yourself to me. Guard and guide and bless my life as I seek you. Amen
