Over the past decade or two most of us have been made aware of Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope.
This is used repeatedly on Graduation gifts.
But do we know the rest? 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
Do you understand that promise? We will call and come and pray and HE WILL LISTEN.
He promises we can find Him. Have we searched with all our heart? When was the last time you wanted something with all your heart? Have you wanted a relationship with God that much?
When verse 14 declares “I will be found by you” it is not some lame saying or cliche. This is a promise from our heavenly Father.
Give verses 12-14a a try for yourself.
In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 You will find me when you seek me, if you look for me in earnest. 14a Yes, says the Lord, I will be found by you… Amplified Bible
