“You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart” Jeremiah 29:13
Dear brothers and sisters,
Our memory verse for this month is a great challenge for all of us.
To seek the Lord with all our heart is referring to the seat of the inner life, our thoughts and feelings. As a body’s vigour comes from its physical heart, your soul’s vigour comes from its spiritual heart. Faith is made strong in the heart (Rom 10:10); We love God in our heart (Luke 10:27); We pray effectively from our heart (2Tim 2:22).
Importantly, scripture tells us to “Keep your heart with all vigilance; for from it flow the springs of life” (Prov 4:23). It is imperative then to reflect on what is flowing from our heart? What is flowing to those around me especially those I live closely with? What is the culture or lifestyle that is forming around me? If our heart is healthy and we are seeking God I suggest we should see some of these things:
I would encourage you to join me in seeking God with all of our heart. God promises that when we do this WE WILL FIND HIM! The possibility of such a great reward should be a great encouragement for us.
