The scripture for the week is Jeremiah 29:11-13. (Verse 11 – “For I know the thoughts I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” King James Version) Most of us know verse 11 by heart and it gives us such hope and comfort. However, sometimes we forget the next two verses, which say that then, when we call upon the Lord and PRAY with Him, he will hearken unto us, and we will SEEK Him and will FIND Him, when we shall search for Him with all our heart.
We need to do our part by coming to Him and praying and seeking Him.
I find that when I am praying and seeking the Lord, and giving Him of my time, that’s when He brings me into His Presence. We can experience that love, hope, and comfort that we all need – especially during difficult times. Just as we want and need to experience the Lord’s love for us, I believe He loves to hear us tell Him that we desire Him as well. I’ve discovered that it is at these intimate times when He gives me revelation and clear direction in my life. He lets me see a future and a hope.
May the Lord bring us to a deeper realization of His great love. I pray that each one reading this will be encouraged. Have a wonderful and blessed week!
