Jeremiah 29:13 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Jeremiah 29:13

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all of your heart.” 


Spiritual hide and seek!! This verse rings so true to me because for so long, I would seek God for selfish, personal reasons. I would go to Him when I was in trouble or to appease other people. I would wonder, “Why isn’t God answering my prayers? Why do I feel so distant? Why can’t I seem to get ahead?” I treated God like a magical genie and just wanted Him to poof all my problems away, and that’s not how it works. I wanted my will, my way, and my results.


But I believe that to truly seek God with all your heart, you have to say a prayer like Jesus did: “Not My will but Your will be done.” We have to empty ourselves out to make room for God! I can’t seek God with all my heart if there are little Stephen desires in there getting in the way! God’s process is perfect; I am the one who gets in the way!


This verse is a great and powerful promise to us that God isn’t out there hiding from us! It took me so long to find Him because I couldn’t get out of my own way!! Now that I found Him, I’m never letting go, and I pray you can do the same!!! It was amazing that once I stopped hiding and started seeking, I found everything that I was looking for!!!


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to our Father in Heaven!!!!
