Deuteronomy 4:29 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Deuteronomy 4:29

But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.


This verse jumped off the page at me today, and I instantly prayed it. The verses leading up to this one talk about how the Israelites will turn from God and toward idols and how death, destruction, and oppression will fall on them because of that idolatry. But God’s heart isn’t to leave them in that mess, but rather to give them a key to their freedom! He promises that if they (in their state of idolatry) will turn from their idols toward Him and seek Him with everything they are, then they WILL find Him! What a promise from God! It’s not a maybe, or a probably, or you should, but He says, “You will find Me when you seek Me with all your heart and soul.” Let that encourage you today.


Not only does God tells us how to do it, but He says we can start right where we’re at. There isn’t a magical ceremony or ritual but simply turn to Him. Choose Jesus over everything, and you will find Him in everything, Or better yet, He will find you!


I love how our God doesn’t leave the important things up for chance or interpretation. It’s clear cut, and I’m so very thankful for that because I can overthink things. Do you want more peace, hope, and love in your life? Then choose to make Jesus the King of your life. Do you want to experience God and find Him all around you? Then make spending time with Him a priority, not something you just fit into your day.


God is merciful and is wishing that none shall perish, but we have to choose to surrender and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and once we do, we gotta live like it! The problem isn’t that God is hiding. It’s that we’re not looking !!!


Be vigilant, Be humble, Be a servant, persevere, and run your race!!! Let Jesus take you from broken to beautiful!!!


I love you all. God bless, and Glory to God Jesus and the Holy Spirit in the highest!
